The Key success factors  for any optical fiber transmission backhaul , access networks or In building fiber to the home (FTTH) infrastructure are durability which means built to last ,reliability which ensures sustainability under challenging onsite conditions ,technology that enables faster network rollouts & constant innovation that delivers next generation solution to the ever evolving needs of our customers .

Our KASTA HDPE ducts are engineered, evolved  and are custom made around our  understanding on applications  and actual deployment requirements for your mission critical optical fiber networks .Our state of the art quality systems and our firm commitment  ensures that you burry the best duct every time .

These KASTA HDPE ducts are designed in various sizes & configurations to address your key requirements such as cablesize, cable type and nature of the deployment techniques. We craft miniature 5.5 mm to mid size 40 mm HDPE Ducts for Main OF cable to FTTH blown fiber and direct burred to aerial cable deployments.

Each of our HDPE ducts are coextruded with anultra fine, highly reinforced, thick inner “Silk layer” layer made of enrichedlubricant. It facilitates faster cable blowing, protects the cable against aerodynamic heating, significantly reduces coefficient of friction, remains constant throughout the duct length and remains effective as long as the duct lives.

All our ducts undergo and exceeds stringent global quality test benchmarks so they can withstand horizontal directional drilling (HDD) at great lengths , high bend induced stress ,over exposure to sunlight (Ultraviolet rays) ,high impacts during mechanical excavations ,extreme temperatures ranges without cracks or splits ,excellent ovality ensures  no  leakage at coupling locations  during  high pressure blowing  and last but not least wall thickness throughout the duct length . These factors are the sum of your returns on investment and peace of mind multipliers.

We integrate technology that delivers solutions and not just a basic HDPE duct. Now you can trace your duct depth and identify locations through GPS satellites, simply blow at enhanced distance due to the optimized inner duct geometry and use high quality HDPE Duct accessories like Snap fit couplers, Duct end caps, Cableplugs, ductspacers and other fitments available in various dimensions.

One of our hallmarks is the ability to innovate and customize products through our extensive telecom technology expertise aided by state of the art extrusion and injection molding capabilities.

 Jet forward propulsion flow

FiBERFLY is a unique telecom inner ribbed ductdesign that ensures blowing at an extra distance. The optimized geometry produces “suction effect” that multiples the pulling force and optical fiber cable floats  in the  HDPE Duct with enhanced velocity.

  • Elliptical Interior ribs geometry reduce surface contact with optical fiber cable during installation.
  • Also enhances the aerodynamics during blowing and provides an extra movement.It creates a jet engine like forward propulsion within the duct.
  • The stress on Optical fiber is contained and that means longer life span and low cable losses.
  • Long distance blowing means less coupling, less network deployment time which means low network buildup cost.
  • It also ensures use of longer cable length drums which means less splicing and optimized optical link budgets. Net saving on capital expenditure incurred on additional joint enclosures, Jointing pits and other accessories.
  • The operational expenditure gets reduced as less maintenance is required over a long haul duct routes.
  • Inner lubricant ‘Silk layer” coextruded with HDPE reduces coefficient of friction & enhances blowing performance.
  • Tested against stringent elongation break requirements which eliminate issues during HDD (Horizontal directional drilling).

FiBERiTRACK is a burry and forget tracing technology duct design with a coextruded and insulated tinplated copper wire that can pin point where ever the duct is buried. It works hand in hand with a GPS based Locating system that can produce real-time reports.

The non-intrusive measuring device, the receiver, takes measurements along the pipeline and plots the results directly onto the screen of the receiver. There is no need to carry extra logging and display devices. All the data is displayed and logged into the receiver and can be downloaded to a spread sheet or dedicated analysis program.

A +/- 3m accuracy GPS antenna is included with the system. It links to the receiver via Bluetooth radio link. The GPS enables the user to generate real time current gradient graphs and guides the user back to a point of interest by highlighting the user’s position on the graph.

  • Measures precise duct coordinates and the duct network can be plotted on the map.
  • Identifies if the duct is buried at the right depth which means confirmation on best practices of deployment

  • ABD’s (As built drawing ) can be updated in real time
  • It comes with tracer wire- weather proof jointing connecters.
  • Inner lubricant ‘Silk layer” coextruded with HDPE duct reduces coefficient of friction & enhances blowing performance.

PUSH FIT COUPLERS The HDPE duct can easily be shoved in these snap fit couplers to complete a joint. The robust seal & lock mechanism ensures smooth cable blowing even at  a high pressure of 15 bars , without any leakage .It does not require any tool or skills  and is easier to handle by any one on the site . It does not deteriorate even after several mating during the installation.

BLANK DUCT PLUGS  When the duct laying process gets over and the empty HDPE ducts are to be terminated they should be sealed properly. Blank Duct Plugs ensures protection against the ingress of contaminated water, dirt, chemicals moister or rodents which can impact the life of the duct and make the duct integrity test & cable blowing a nightmare. 

CABLE SEALING  PLUGS  Once the Fiber optic cable is pulled or being blown in the HDPE duct these Plugs are used to seal the duct with the cable, specially at manholes , jointing pits or hand holes. This ensures durability of HDPE ducts and   fiber optic cable and protects them against ingress of any kind.
