Electrical & Communications Systems

Features & Benefits

  • PVC Conduit Jointing

    PVC conduits have an integral socket for solvent cement jointing.

  • Corflo Conduit

    Vinidex Corflo® is high performance double-wall PVC pipe with a smooth internal bore and corrugated exterior for electrical and stormwater applications. Corflo® electrical conduit is coloured orange and Corflo® communications conduit is coloured white.

    The technologically advanced design and manufacture of Corflo® enables superior characteristics to be achieved, as follows:

    • A material efficient product
    • Lighter weight per unit length
    • Superior strength
    • Long pipe length
    • Excellent handling and durability
    • High performance and cost efficiency
  • Polyethylene Conduit

    Polyethylene (PE) conduit for electrical applications is coloured orange whereas conduit for telecommunications is coloured white, black, or black with white stripes. PE is available in long lengths in coils, is flexible and can be installed below ground using ploughing-in, directional drilling or open trench techniques.

  • Cable Cover

    Cable Cover is polymeric cable protection available in rolls or sheets. It provides increased protection for underground cables.
