Microduct

Blue Diamond manufactures a wide range of microduct sizes and configurations.  Microducts are becoming increasingly popular with engineers and owners due to the thirst for 1G+ broadband speed, and with the advent of microfiber cables.  They allow home-runs from node to customer, without splicing and empty ducts for future connections, all within the same trench footprint.  Whether microtrenching, installing Fiber to the Home, 5G wireless, or highspeed business campuses, microducts from Blue Diamond can be the right solution.

Blue Diamond offers both single tube and multi-tube combinations.  Our multi-tube duct is offered in both regular wall and heavy wall oversheath options.  Other standard features include: ribbed inside wall, multiple color options (click here for colors), permanent SuperGlide™ interior, oversheathed in various combinations.
