Flexi Baffles – Culvert Baffles

New Zealand Flexi Baffles have been designed to assist with upstream fish passage by altering the flow of water through culverts and providing areas for fish to rest.

The baffles can be fitted prior to the installation of the culvert, or retro-fitted to existing structures. ATS Environmental provide an installation service if required, contact us directly for advise on sizes and spacing.

Flexi Baffles placed inside culvert pipe are able to:

Reduce velocity
Increase depth
Interrupt laminar flow
Extend range of flow characteristics
Retain stream bed material
Create high and low flow passage

ATS Environmental Flexi Baffles are made in NZ from flexible polymers (20+ year warranty). Our culvert baffles are suitable for round or square culverts and can be modified on site to fit any particular requirements.
Standard Flexi-Baffles are 100mm and 150mm high but can be trimmed if required.
Lengths up to 1800mm but can be placed end on end to suit any width structure.
If you need any help determining the size of baffle, don’t hesitate to contact us directly.

Culverts can be installed so that baffles are not required. Guidelines can be downloaded from a number of council websites.
