Adaptaflex releases the PA series conduit for power-telecommunication infrastructure protection
Adaptaflex has released the PA series conduit for power-telecommunication infrastructure protection.
Causing unexpected challenges in the Australian outback, birds, particularly cockatoos, corellas and galahs, cause damage to telecommunications and power infrastructure. The Adaptaflex PA series conduit addresses this with its inherent slipperiness, making it nearly impossible for birds to gain enough grip to cause damage.
Damage caused by these birds puts essential services at risk, particularly in emergency situations. Remote areas, where RF feeders are often located, pose additional challenges due to the logistical difficulties of maintenance.
Contrary to expectations, the solution to this issue did not lie in strength or robustness alone. Adaptaflex’s PA series conduit offers a surprising advantage, its slipperiness, a simple yet effective solution in deterring birds.
Additionally, the PA series conduit provides several other advantages, including:
- Flame retardant properties: Withstanding temperatures of up to 120°C, the PA series conduit ensures protection against the scorching Australian heat. This fire resistance not only safeguards the conduit itself but also reduces the risk of bushfires caused by electrical faults.
- Abrasion resistance: In the harsh Australian outback, abrasive elements are a constant threat. PA series conduit is built to withstand abrasion, ensuring its durability and longevity.
- High impact strength: The conduit’s high impact strength makes it capable of withstanding the rigours of installation and potential physical stress.
- UV resistance: The harsh Australian sun can take a toll on materials exposed to it. PA series conduit’s UV resistance ensures that it remains in optimal condition even under prolonged sun exposure.
