Milliken Infrastructure Solutions, LLC (Spartanburg, SC) has expanded its Vis Divide product line to include a 2-inch DR 11, 2-cell configuration, the company announced.
The Vis Divide segmented high-density polyethylene (HDPE) rigid conduit provides dedicated pathways for the placement of more than one cable in a single conduit without damaging the cables. As stated by Milliken, "launched earlier this year with a 1.5-inch, 2-cell configuration, Vis Divide offers a distinct advantage over other HDPE conduits by allowing for the placement of multiple cables into a single conduit. Vis Divide includes a textile divider molded directly into the conduit that provides operators deployment flexibility and efficiency - optimizing network infrastructure space and easing cable replacement. Vis Divide also helps to lower long-term costs of projects by requiring fewer conduits on a job thus reducing operational costs, including boring/trenching, transportation and replacement."
According to the company, like all Milliken products, Vis Divide offers long-lasting reliability, and conforms to ASTM F-2160 and ASTM D-3350 standards and specifications. “The response we’ve had for the initial launch of Vis Divide has been extremely positive as users see the advantages that our Vis lineup offers - from ease-of-install to cost-savings,” comments Dale Willis, vice president for Milliken Infrastructure Solutions, LLC. “The 2-inch Vis Divide offers additional design options to those involved in the deployment of cables and is designed specifically to address the modern demands in data communication cable installation and management.”
The launch of the Vis Divide conduit coincided with the debut of the Vis brand, Milliken’s line of high performance cable management and infrastructure optimization solutions. In addition to Vis Divide, the Vis product lineup includes Vis Tape, an industrial grade pull tape featuring long-lasting print legibility and durability, print length accuracy and a soft feel.
As explained by the company, "The Vis Tape was designed using Milliken’s MPrint technology, an entirely new process, which results in an industry-leading print durability and legibility standard for measurements and other markings. Installers can rely on Milliken’s process for creating Vis Tape’s highly accurate print lengths - with sequential markings every two feet - to ensure cable runs are correct each and every pull. Vis Tape’s non-abrasive coating also helps to prevent conduit damage during cable installations. Milliken’s Vis Tape features an ultra-soft feel, which eliminates the rigidness commonly found in other tapes and ropes. The Vis Tape is manufactured with low elongation properties to reduce snap backs, providing a safer alternative to pull ropes. Milliken’s Vis Tape is available in a standard and detectable version in a variety of tensile strengths, ranging from 1,130 to 2,500 pounds."
