Choosing the right conduit for fiber optic cable or electrical applications is essential to the success of your project. Pittsburgh Pipe is your St. Louis, Missouri, telecom innerduct specialist. We offer several types of innerduct that meet industry standards and satisfy your project needs.
Pittsburgh Pipe Provides Durable HDPE Ducts for Telecom Projects
We manufacture high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes with many advantages. It’s constructed using an anti-corrosion material that shrugs off moisture and wear and tear. The surface of the HDPE innerduct is abrasion-resistant. It avoids damage from the elements and movement under the soil.
Beyond our engineering knowledge in HDPE pipe production, your organization will benefit from our real-world expertise in implementing HDPE in many different locations and with various applications. We can also meet your supply needs, no matter the size of your product. Whether your project requires installing HDPE for a short extension or multiple truckloads, we can meet your needs.
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Pipe
HDPE ducts are designed for extended, leak-proof performance and are an exceptional choice for telecom or electrical applications. Smooth-wall HDPE pipes are a cost-effective way to ensure protection and durability for the transfer of various applications such as wastewater, hazardous materials, and compressed gases.
HDPE duct pipes are safe and reliable. Heat-fused joints reduce any chance of leakage, and anti-corrosion material makes them a sure bet to remain sturdy and pristine regardless of the task at hand. Corrugated HDPE ducts are also available for when you need ductwork in tight spaces.
Direct burial cable offers less friction with additional strength and is essential for developing a successful cable networking system. The ribbed innerduct conduit is built for inground installation and protects against weathering, water, and rodents. Our patented design goes through 25 testing steps to ensure compliance.
Smooth Wall Innerduct
Smooth wall HDPE is used in the underground raceway and typically packaged in continuous reels. Available in many colors to make it easier to identify, Pittsburgh Pipe experts can install smooth wall ducts through trenching, plowing, or directional drilling. You can also select different wall thicknesses depending on the needs and installation methods used on your project.
Tonable conduit allows you to locate underground piping to ease the installation or reinstallation process. This additional tracer wire or conduit is corrosion resistant and allows for an alternative method of using pull tape.
Specialty Duct Solutions for Telecom Conduit
A long-lasting and durable telecom innerduct ensures your conduit stands the test of time. Pittsburgh Pipe has provided excellent piping tailored to client needs since 1977. We offer high-quality products that contribute to the success of your job or project. Our engineers maximize conduit space and situate your fiber optic highways snugly.
We deliver the following telecom innerducts:
Aerial ductwork is beneficial for road and rail crossings, trolley crossings, and water crossings. An aerial conduit application provides an efficient means of supporting cable that can easily be replaced or introduce additional cables without requiring anyone to enter hazardous or hard-to-reach areas.
Cable In Conduit (CIC)
This protective encasing may be made of metal, plastic, fiber, or fired clay. Most cables in conduits are rigid, but flexible conduit is used for some purposes. Electrical conduits provide excellent protection to enclosed conductors from impact, moisture, and chemical vapors.
Figure Eight Duct
Ideal for projects that need maximum protection in areas with limited access, the figure-eight duct is perfect for keeping your cables safe. The figure-eight construction with extra high strength (EHS) maximizes the potential use of a confined space.
The Maxcell innerduct system uses a cutting-edge flexible fabric design that’s easier to use than corrugated innerduct piping. Maxcell can conform to tight areas while retaining its cable protection properties, maximizing cable space and making it a superior choice for a wide variety of cable installation uses.
Microducts are primarily small in diameter, flexible, or semi-flexible ducts designed to provide clean, continuous, low-friction paths for placing cables with relatively low pulling tension limits. Bundles of small microducts are installed within the main microduct, increasing protection and the separation of wires.
Plenum-rated telecom innerduct is ideal for projects with cable pulls of less than 1000 feet. Their nonmetallic flexibility reduces the surface contact of fiber cables pulled through the ducts. This product can be custom ordered for wall thickness, coil lengths, straight lengths, and colors. Pittsburgh Pipe can also match the product to meet ASTM specifications.
We Offer Telecom Conduit Accessories and More
Construction projects are sophisticated. Before you start your project, survey the structures and lines that lie beneath a job site. Identifying the location of telecom conduits, sewer lines, utilities, gas, fiber, and potable water keeps your team informed and safe and prevents unexpected downtime and expenses. If your team works on private property, you need to locate underground lines on your own.
To protect your HDPE conduit from lightning strikes, moisture, shifting ground, and other outside interference, Pittsburgh Pipe offers the following accessories:
Ground Rod and Clamps
Telecom conduits attract electricity from significant sources. Ground rods and other telecom accessories draw the current away from essential communications equipment to protect both your assets and crew from sudden interference.
Ground rods provide grounding for substations, towers, buildings, and other structures when driven into the earth. Our copper-covered and galvanized steel rods are high quality and covered with electrolytic copper and zinc. Clamps can be buried directly into soil or concrete and connect the grounding conductor to the driven ground rods.
Extra-Strength Non-Detectable Warning Tape
Our polyurethane tape exceeds industry standards. It has the following advantages:
- Made using plastic film with super-enhanced tensile and elongation qualities
- Lead-free pigments that maintain color vibrancy when buried
- Protects and identifies buried lines
- Long-lasting and environmentally safe ink
Detectable Polyester Pulling Tape
Pittsburgh Pipe provides pull tape that makes locating cable in conduit simple. It has the following qualities:
- Low elongation
- Accurate sequential footage markings
- 22-gauge detectable copper conductor
- Available with custom length reels
PVC Conduit and Fittings
Pittsburgh Pipe has a complete line of PVC conduit and fittings. Our material is durable and prepared for maintenance-free performance in various applications, underground or otherwise.
Our PVC is:
- Non-galvanic and non-magnetic
- Suitable for industrial, utility, and commercial application
