Atkore Micro-Path™ Microduct Piping System

What is Micro-Path ™?

Micro-Path™ is Atkore’s exclusive Microduct piping system, designed to provide a full range of cost-effective solutions to meet today’s micro-cabling and microducting needs. Utilizing the latest improvements in conduit manufacturing, Micro-Path™ is a versatile option for new project installations, or upgrading or replacing aging communications infrastructure across industries, from residential to corporate.


Build Future Pathways for Connectivity

As traditional cabling products require expensive updates to meet modern advancements in communications technology, Micro-Path™ offers new and economical options in microduct piping.

Key Benefits of Microduct Piping

One installation cost applies toward multiple pathways, and no special tools or equipment are needed for installation. This reduces construction and labor costs, and speeds up deployment and installation time, blowing up to 325 feet per minute. In addition to saving on additional materials like vaults and closures, microduct piping also allows for longer installation distances—up to 6,600 feet.

Extra ducts can be installed and left open, allowing pathways for future expansion and providing a scalable solution that reduces expansion costs. Microduct is also ideal for new installations in tight or constricted areas where traditional cabling leaves little room for expansion.

Atkore offers sizing from 2,5/8 mm to 18/14 mm, single to 12-way configurations, as well as Aerial and Low Fire Hazard options.

Fiber Fill Calculator

The Fiber Fill Calculator is a resource for choosing microduct products compatible with your fiber optic cable.

The Fiber Fill Calculator operates on the assumed optimal fill ratio range of 50-80% for effectively jetting microcable into microduct. Please note that while this is an important factor, it's important to consider other variables when planning your installation.

This information is intended to be used as a general guide. To ensure you select the best product for your requirements, and for in-depth support before, during, and after your installation, we recommend consulting with your Atkore sales representative. Note that Atkore assumes no responsibility for any damages that may arise from using these calculations in real-world installations.
