Product Description

PE electrical and telecommunications conduit

Acu-Power and Acu-Comms conduit can be installed below ground by a variety of methods, including directional drilling, ploughing, and open trench.  Also, its flexibility and availability in continuous coiled lengths facilitates installation into existing conduits or ducts as inner-duct. HDPE Pipe is much more flexible than PVC Pipe, and can be installed by directional drilling, or dozer direct-bury, something which could not be done with PVC Conduit.

Cable conduit is manufactured from HDPE, with a coloured outer layer, known as coex (co-extruded), for easy identification. Electrical HDPE Orange coex is used for Electrical Cable protection, and Comms HDPE White Coex is used for Communications Cable protection. Visual Early Warning Tape is available to lay in the ground above the conduit, to avoid damage by excavation. See for Pipe Marking Tape suited for Telecommunications Conduit and Electrical Conduit.
