MicroDucts and FuturePath

MicroDucts are small diameter conduits ranging from 5-22mm OD that provide a pathway for fiber cables. They are a natural evolution of standard conduits as space in networks is a premium and as new technologies develop, they typically decrease in size. FuturePath is two or more MicroDucts bundled under an oversheath. Both products can be installed using standard Outside Plant (OSP) installation methods in common applications. Chose the correct product by application and installation method listed below.

FuturePath Armored
FuturePath Armored is designed to provide superior mechanical protection against rodents, ballistics, crush, chemicals, and moisture penetration in a direct bury or aerial application. The corrugated steel armor is coated with a corrosion-resistant copolymer and bonded with the HDPE jacket for superior protection in rugged environments.
MicroDucts Riser
Great for MDU applications, our Riser MicroDucts are made from fire retardant materials which are fully ETL approved for Riser applications per UL-2024 and UL-94-V2. Preinstalled Pull String is available for quick fiber installations. A SILICORE lining makes the cable installation even easier without using wet lubes inside buildings.
FuturePath Aerial
FuturePath Aerial is a bundled package of MicroDucts for easy installation in an aerial environment. FuturePath makes the best use of limited available space on the pole while reducing installation cost and time to deploy. No special installation hardware or tools needed for deployment other than standard aerial installation equipment.
MicroDucts Locatable
Perfect for Drops in FTTH applications, MicroDucts with a location wire for easy identification in the ground.
FuturePath Riser
FuturePath Riser rated products are used within buildings in either vertical or horizontal back bone applications or directly to workstations as drops.
FuturePath Low Smoke Zero Halogen
Dura-Line was the first to pioneer this technology and introduce it to the U.S. market. LSZH Conduit and MicroDucts, ETL verified to UL1685-4 and IEC 60754-1, exhibit excellent properties such as low flame propagation, low smoke generation, zero halogen emissions, and excellent low temperature mechanical properties. They are designed for use in applications where smoke, toxic fumes, and acidic gas pose a health risk and possible damage to electronic equipment. Examples include enclosed public areas and poorly ventilated areas such as tunnels, mass transit corridors, behind-the-wall, control rooms, and confined spaces.
FuturePath
MicroDuct is bundled into an easy-to-handle unit known as FuturePath. FuturePath can be installed just like standard duct: open trench, aerial, directional drilled, plowed or pulled into an existing conduit. When branching individual MicroDucts, there is no need for a special branching box. No special tools or equipment are required for installation.
FuturePath Hybrid
FuturePath configuration consisting of two or more different sizes of conduit and or MicroDucts. A perfect choice for customers who have needs to run micro cables and larger standard fiber cables at the same time, or would like to plan for future possibilities.
FuturePath Jumbo
FuturePath configuration consisting of 2, 3, or 4 conduits, available in a selection of sizes and wall types. A perfect choice for customers who would like to plan for future possibilities using larger standard fiber cables
