MicroTechnology is a term given to smaller conduits and fiber used in Inside and Outside Plant Construction (ISP and OSP). MicroDucts were developed as a solution to house fiber cables that were smaller in size, but still carried significant capacity. Today, MicroCables range from 6 to 432-fiber counts. The glass fibers are the same type as those used in traditional fiber cables, only the cable design has been altered to reduce the diameter of the cable sheath and support system. MicroDucts bundled under one sheath are called FuturePath and provide multiple ducts in one structure for future expansion of networks.
Dura-Line manufactures standard High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) conduits for standard installation applications such as standard underground, as innerducts in existing conduits, or corrugated products to use in congested areas. HDPE is a flexible and resilient material. It provides superior resistance to natural or mechanical damage, and has excellent low temperature properties to handle cold weather.
Dura-Line's Speciality Conduits are designed and manufactured to perform to meet application-specfic requirements such as aerial, locatable, providing superior mechanical protection, and fire resistant spaces. Customers using Specialty products leverage the unique characteristics for particular projects.
To complete your installation, Dura-Line offers a complete line of Accessories and additional tools to make installations easier. Couplers, with properties designed for air-jetting, plow chutes, and other installations, easily join lengths of Conduits and MicroDucts. Lubricants in a variety of formulations, including high performance in cold weather, aid in cable placement. MicroAccessories include couplers, end caps, and speciality items designed to perform with MicroDucts and FuturePath. Bull-Line Pull Tape can help install both conduit and cables inside conduit.
These Applications demonstrate how conduit is used in everyday life throughout our modern world. Considered an integral part of the construction phase, the long-term return on investment on installing a flexible, easily scalable conduit network system is priceless. Multiple industries rely on clear, consistent, reliable communication technology. Learn more about how Dura-Line products are integral in providing connection.
