Padman Stops has been “The Farmers’ Friend” for over 30 years, transforming water efficiency for farmers and reducing labour, time and cost with innovative products and technology.

One of these innovative products is the MaxiFlow Culvert. These unique flat-bottomed culverts offer some of the highest flow rates and best water efficiency rates available and have been utilised in farms right across Australia since 2002.

With so much success transforming efficiencies within Agriculture over so many years, it soon became apparent that similar culverts could be used to transform efficiency within Civil Engineering applications too.

Padman Quick Culverts were born.

Padman Quick Culverts are design certified and accredited to meet the Australian industry standards for Quality, Safety and Environment. Their unique single-piece design (with headwall, base and culvert, all-in-one) can be installed faster than traditional box culverts. Their flat-bottomed design is self-levelling, and you can drive over them the minute they’re installed.
