REHAU is an industry leader in the global civil engineering and infrastructure sphere. From Germany to Australia, REHAU provides building, architectural and industrial solutions, as well as manufacturing its own range of civil infrastructure solutions called AWASHAFT.

REHAU’s AWASHAFT is the most accessible, flexible and durable maintenance structure in sewer applications on the Australian market. The AWASHAFT 400 (maintenance shaft) is: 

  • Up to 50 per cent faster to install than concrete sewerage maintenance
  • Up to 95 per cent lighter than concrete sewerage maintenance
  • Durable and corrosion-proof (double the service life)
  • Easier to clean, inspect and transport
  • Environmentally friendly

Due to its convenient modular design, pre-made base with channel and benching, as well as the option of in-built ladders, AWASHAFT can be installed quickly and easily. The modular push-fit connections are simple and can be performed by anyone, so there’s no need for skills like pouring, finishing or concrete coating. 

AWASHAFT is also free from installation tools or heavy machinery to be installed. 

REHAU strives for innovation like this. Its cutting-edge German engineered solutions simplify jobs and benefit installers, designers and end users. REHAU products are safe, easy and foolproof – not to mention longer-lasting and structurally sound. REHAU’s AWASHAFT range follows the same principle.
