BICSI 2016 Profiles: Milliken's Vis Divide HDPE Conduit

Feb. 18, 2016
The Vis Divide provides for placement of more than one cable in a single pathway, via a fabric divider molded directly into the conduit.

As CablingInstall.com made the exhibition floor rounds at the recent 2016 BICSI Winter Conference, here we got a look at Milliken Infrastructure's Vis Divide segmented HDPE rigid conduit. As explained by Milliken's Drew Morris, the Vis Divide provides for placement of more than one cable in a single pathway, via a fabric divider molded directly into the conduit.

The product was officially launched at the 2016 BICSI Winter Conference. From Milliken's Vis Divide press release:

"The Vis product lineup [includes the] Vis Divide, a segmented high-density polyethylene (HDPE) rigid conduit that provides dedicated pathways for the placement of more than one cable in a single conduit without damaging the cables, and Vis Tape, an industrial grade pull tape featuring long-lasting print legibility and durability, print length accuracy and soft feel.

Vis Divide offers a distinct advantage over other HDPE conduits by allowing for the placement of multiple cables into a single conduit. [The product] includes a fabric divider molded directly into the conduit that provides operators deployment flexibility and efficiency—optimizing network infrastructure space and easing cable replacement. By maximizing capacity—thus requiring fewer conduits on a job—Vis Divide also helps to lower long-term costs of projects by reducing operational costs, including boring/trenching, transportation and replacement. Vis Divide conforms to ASTM F-2160 and ASTM D-3350 standards and specifications. The product is currently available in a 1.5” nominal diameter DR 11, 2 cell configuration, but additional sizes and cell configurations are planned line extensions."
