Flat microduct systems
Another advantage of working with flat microduct systems is that they don’t need any further protection in the ground, so no additional housings or closures are required. Instead, individual microducts can be accessed simply by cutting a slot in the sheath. A branch is then created by mating one tube to another using a suitable push-fit connector. This process of “slot cutting” and “branch off” is quick and easy to do, which is important when there are many locations to be accessed and homes to be connected. The simple process helps to keep costs down.
