Telecom Accessories

Specialized telecom tools for your project needs.

Before you start a project, you should always understand the structures and lines that lie beneath the surface at the jobsite. It’s vital to identify the location to utilities, gas, fiber, water, telecommunications conduit, and sewer lines. This keeps your workforce safe but it also protects you from costly repairs and downtime. Municipalities can identify sewers and underground electrical lines, but if you’re doing work on private property, you’ll need to locate other underground lines yourself.

Telecom Locator Equipment

Pittsburgh Pipe offers locator equipment to allow you to make sure you know the complete landscape below ground level. Our units are simple to operate and durable enough to handle the rigors of any job site, any weather condition, and any measurement. This equipment uses radio frequencies to give you a picture of what lies beneath the surface. This way you can mark the trace of any lines through the jobsite, regardless of their purpose or burial depth.

Other telecom accessories we offer include:

  • Underground Locators
  • Tracer Wire
  • Warning Tape
  • Cable Marker Posts
  • Ground Rod and Clamps
  • Pull Tape

Ground Rods and Accessories

Your telecom conduit can attract electricity from some powerful sources, and when you need to protect it from lightning strikes, Pittsburgh Pipe can supply the proper ground rods and accessories to direct the current away from your important communications equipment. The right equipment will make sure the personnel using the telecommunications equipment are safe, and sensitive equipment is protected from lightning strikes and resulting power surges.

Proper installation of the metal grounding rod clamps is essential to the correct function of the grounding rods. They need to be secure but they cannot impede the conduit or damage it, either during installation or in the case of any ground movement. Pittsburgh Pipe is always on hand to help with any questions or concerns you have during the installation process.

Downtime is expensive. When you invest in underground conduit for your own network, the last thing you need is unpredictable service and intermittent data loss from outside interference. If you’ve used a conducting metal for your buried telecom conduit, it needs to be adequately protected from dangers such as moisture, animals, shifting ground, and the often overlooked lightning strike and resulting power surges.
