Laminex Culverts


Laminex, the Culvert for Every Environment

Wheeler Laminex Culverts are used in the harshest soil and water conditions.  Available as single or multiple barrels, the laminex culvert blends into the surrounding environment with its natural, rustic color and texture.  Flexibility in design allows almost any rectangular configuration, perfect for extending existing culverts.

The square or rectangular opening provides greater area than circular culverts of the same height, and greater flow at low water levels.  The laminex culvert design provides maximum head room with minimal cover.

Highway and light construction crews can erect laminex culverts without the use of costly heavy equipment.  Backfilling and compacting is easier due to the rectangular shape of the box.  For temporary installations, it is completely salvageable for movement to a new site.           View Examples
