Get optimum strength, flexibility and performance in a more environmentally-friendly pipe.
Corrugated Steel Pipe (CSP) from AIL is the material of choice for new or replacement culvert projects, reline projects and many other applications.
A high quality corrugated metal pipe that is built to last
It will not crack under impact loads or vibrations due to the inherent strength of steel and the flexibility of the corrugated pipe section. The high ring compression of the pipe absorbs and transfers the load to the surrounding soil around the entire circumference. The beam strength maintains the grade and line of the structure by bridging inequalities of the trench bottom and side fill.
Corrugated Steel Pipe has a smaller carbon footprint than concrete*
In a 450 mm size, for example, Corrugated Steel Pipe’s carbon footprint is 40% smaller* than that of a Reinforced Concrete Pipe. Plus, as the pipe diameter increases, the environmental advantages of using Corrugated Steel Pipe increase as well. In fact, Corrugated Steel Pipe delivers a wide range of environmental benefits including: reduced greenhouse gases, lower pollution, less acid rain and a reduction in depletion of materials such as the water and energy used in manufacturing.

AIL’s Corrugated Steel Pipe is inventoried in storage yards across Canada, ready to ship for emergency culvert washout replacements
Applications include culverts, drainage systems, stormwater systems, fish passages, culvert relines, conveyor covers or overcasts, and ventilation or utilidor systems.
Providing a design service life of 25 to 100+ years, AIL offers three factory-applied finishes to meet your performance and hydrology considerations. Soil conditions and a variety of other site/application factors can influence your choice of CSP coatings. An environmental assessment will help you select the appropriate coating to meet your requirements.
- Galvanized – Standard service life of 25 years
Corrugated Steel Pipe with Galvanized Coating. Galvanized Steel is the standard finish for all Corrugated Steel Pipe (CSP) and performs well in low-abrasion conditions.
- Aluminized Type 2 – Service life of 75 years
Corrugated Steel Pipe with Aluminized Coating. For more corrosive environments, Aluminized Type 2 coating offers the superior corrosion resistance and surface characteristics of aluminum with the strength and economy of steel.
- Polymer-Laminated – Service life of 100+ years
Corrugated Steel Pipe with Polymer-Laminated Coating. Polymer Laminate is a tough heavy-gauge film that is laminated to both sides of galvanized steel to produce a corrosion and abrasion barrier for the most aggressive environments. Polymer Laminate CSP will stand up to high concentrations of acids and alkalis.
