Power & Communications
HDPE (Poly) Piping is a flexible and versatile option for power and communications.
Our HDPE can be installed quickly in a variety of applications including Directional Drilling, Trenching, Micro-Trenching, and Plowing. We can manufacture custom lengths to maximize footage and reduce connections.
There are five standard colors with or without stripes for quick line identification. Color can be customized and pipes can have a ribbed interior, pull tape, or a lubricated interior.
