Dura-Line is pleased to receive the honor of the Project of the Year Award from the Plastics Pipe Institute for the Power and Communication Division for the Estes Park Colorado Fiber Project.



2019 PPI Power & Communications Division Project of the Year Award

Dura-Line’s innovation was recognized at this year's Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI) Annual Award Banquet. Dura-Line’s Estes Park Colorado Fiber Project won the Project of the Year Award 2018, Power & Communications Division. Dura-Line’s FuturePath Figure-8 Self-Support Aerial, 7-Way 12.7/10 mm was launched as new product in June 2018, taking FuturePath technology into the air! Dura-Line’s FuturePath Figure-8 Self-Support Aerial was used to bring high speed broadband to a very unique city. Estes Park sits in the middle of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 8,000 feet. With all of their poles still being climbed and only 40% access to their existing poles, they decided for a fiber installation they wanted to go up on the poles one time and never have to do it again. The initial project went up a 7-mile canyon and because of the FuturePath multi-chamber pathway design with a micro cable, they were able to jet fiber the entire route without splicing.
