Outdoor telecommunications conduit is coloured white for identification and is used to protect cables from water, contamination, vermin or any other external factors that could adversely affect the performance of cabling. The provision of conduits can optimise the layout and the ease of installation of communications cabling and hardware.
For open trench installations, white PVC conduits are the industry standard. PVC conduits are jointed by solvent cement jointing and changes of direction are made using long radius bends to facilitate cable hauling.
In situations where open trenching is difficult or not cost effective, trenchless installation techniques are used and flexible long lengths of PE communications conduit can be installed. PE pipes are also used as sub-ducts.
