"We've done business with J&J for some 30 years, and I wouldn't even think about changing. They're very competitive and their prices are good. We buy mostly steel end sections for drainage products and some coupling bands. It's all very good quality, and when the products arrive they’re in good shape. The salesmen are very, very good. When I call in an order or ask for a price quote, they take care of it as quickly as possible."

"J&J gives good service ... they’re honest and their integrity is the highest. They're very, very reliable ... people you like to do business with and spend the day with. And that doesn’t happen very often. We're long-time customers — 25-30 years — and buy their standard flared end sections. It's a good product, and the staff is very knowledgeable about the products. I've never had a problem."

A smooth tapered sleeve, available in galvanized and aluminized steel, can be used to connect concrete and plastic pipe to a metal end section. One end of the sleeve wedges snugly into the pipe, and the other attaches to the end section using connectors. The sleeve ensures a consistent flow-line connection.

  • Efficient design
    The flare shape increases hydraulic efficiency at the inlets end,
     reducing the entrance loss coefficients for corrugated pipe or pipe arch from 0.9 to 0.5.
  • Easy attachment
    End sections can be attached using only standard wrenches.
  • Long life
    End section materials � galvanized and aluminized steel and aluminum � give our products a long life span. And by using rods or straps and bolts, end sections can be salvaged if the culvert is moved, replaced or lengthened.
  • Attractive appearance
    Matching the fill slopes, the end section “finishes” the appearance of the culvert and keeps grass, weeds and debris from the culvert opening. It also increases flow characteristics, preventing scouring and undercutting.
  • Easy maintenance
    Mower blades and sickle bars pass harmlessly over the end section that is installed flush with the slope. During snow removal there are no hidden obstructions to slow the job or damage the culvert or maintenance equipment.
  • Cost effective
    Our installed standard flared end sections (in galvanized and aluminized steel or aluminum) are less costly than plastic and concrete end sections or headwalls.
  • Uniform fit
    Our custom-designed, computerized Trumpf machine ensures an accurate, precision fit time and time again.


The J&J Drainage Products Trumpf machine ensures computerized consistency in cutting materials.
