The Numerous Environmental Benefits of Microduct
Today’s world relies on digital solutions and reliable, gigabit-speed internet connections. The conduit systems that can support and protect delicate fiber cables are in high demand. Microduct, which has been used for decades in Europe and Asia, is quickly becoming the preferred choice for housing telecommunications and energy cables in the U.S. It is an integral part of maintaining a secure, fast, and reliable network in hospitals, businesses, and federal buildings. Further, upgrading to microduct can help schools promote and use remote learning.
HDPE Conduit Standards and Certifications: Six Frequently Asked Questions
According to the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), multiple product standards have been published for specific types and applications of HDPE conduit over the past 25 years. PPI encourages end users, engineers and specifiers to update project specifications to reference the correct HDPE conduit product standard. Moving forward, PPI suggests removing reference to pressure pipe standards or project specifications to replace with the most appropriate HDPE conduit standards through selection of a single HDPE conduit standard that most clearly matches the application.
