U.P. Concrete Pipe Company is a distributor of East Jordan street castings and hatch assemblies for manholes and catch basins, tree grates, detectable warning plates and other miscellaneous items.
Construction & Municipal Castings
East Jordan construction & municipal castings can be found throughout the U.P. of Michigan. These construction & municipal castings are manufactured for light, medium, heavy and extra heavy duty designations. The most widely accepted criteria for highway traffic loading is AASHTO’s “Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges” which define H-20 and HS-20 loading. All castings designated as heavy duty meet or exceed these loading criteria.
Durable, functional and architecturally appealing, these cast iron tree grates are necessary for healthy trees in various urban, campus, parks and indoor mall settings. Cast Iron Tree Grates provide more area for pedestrian activity while protecting developing trees and their root system. The slotted design allows for watering and drainage and in most cases are ADA compliant for pedestrian safety. The narrow slot of an ADA grate also prohibits litter from collecting in the tree well and minimizes the growth of weeds.
Detectable Warning Grates
These plates are made from durable cast iron designed to withstand rigorous urban conditions. Cast iron is inherently resistant to corrosion from elements, lasting for many years without further maintenance. Plates are cast with a slip resistant surface and the natural iron visually contrasts with the adjoining walkway.
U.P. Concrete Pipe Company stocks a large inventory of construction and municipal castings, tree grates and detectable warning plates. If you have a need for any of these items or have questions, please give one of our staff members a call and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Geotextiles offer an effective option when compared to the use of natural materials. These options can translate to savings at your jobsite. These geotextiles can be used in several applications including material seperation, drainage, filtration and soil reinforcement on projects such as roads, landfills and parking lots.
Geogrids can be used to reinforce slopes, walls and base layers. They reduce the need for more conventional designs like gradual slopes. When fill is placed on the geogrids, its design locks the soil into place, providing stability. These geogrids are generally used on embankments and other sloped areas for road construction, for pavement reinforcement in parking lots and roadways, and for bank reinforcement for ponds or other waterway areas.
Silt fence is used on residential and commercial sites where sediment control is required. Our silt fence is 3′ high x 100′ long, has 1-1/2″ square hardwood stakes spaced at 6′, and meets current Michigan DOT specifications.
In addition to the items mentioned above, U.P. Concrete Pipe Company can also provide you with other related products such as geomembrane liners & covers which can be used for contaiment of hazardous materials at landfills, or used as a pond liner. Plastic fencing is also available in different configurations and is used as a barrier for safety or for snow drift control.
