Premium Products for Telecommunication Systems

MicroDucts are small diameter conduits ranging from 5-18 mm 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. Choose the correct product by application and installation method listed below.

 

MicroDucts

MicroDucts are a great way of getting the most versatility out of your current empty duct system. Why install one fiber cable when you could install multiple MicroDucts? Each MicroDuct is a pathway for fiber now or in the future. Expand your network based on growing network demands.

MicroDuct Characteristics:

  • HDPE MicroDucts are small, 5mm - 27mm in diameter
  • Manufactured with Silicore - super slick permanent lining
  • A single MicroDuct can accommodate up to 462 fibers
  • Utilize space in an occupied duct
  • Revitalize existing networks with Overrides
  • Also available in Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) material
