INTERIOR MICRODUCT INSTALLATION

Interior MicroDucts are designed to be used in MDU (Multi-Dwelling Units) and MBU (Multi-Business Units) applications. Interior MicroDucts can be used in Greenfield (New Construction) and Overlay (Brownfield) markets. LowSmoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) MicroDucts are designed exclusively for interior use.

MicroDuct Characteristics:
  • SILICORE® super slick permanent lining
  • Internal longitudinal ribbing
  • Standard with a Pull String
  • LSZH MicroDucts are opaque white in color

MicroDuct Placement Guidelines

When placing Dura-Line MicroDucts, the length can vary based on the configuration of the MicroDuct run.

  • The run should not exceed 60 m
  • No more than 8 - 90º bends in 60 m
  • No more than 16 - 45º bends in 60 m
  • Each bend should have at least a 35 cm radius
  • Long sweeping bends are recommended
Make Sure:
  • Use smooth bends with the MicroDuct routing
  • No kinks or deformities in the pathway
  • Proper strapping and support of the MicroDucts
  • Properly label MicroDucts and pull lines on both ends

Pathway Routing Considerations

  • Place runs to minimize the amount of MicroDuct required
  • Choose the path that will require the minimum number of bends
  • Avoid mechanical damage, hot water pipes, steam pipes, metal gratings, etc.
  • Make sure the MicroDucts will not interfere with drywall installation
  • Drill your right of ways in a manner that  will not interfere with the bend radius or add bends
