Concrete ducts for electrical cables

Concrete ducts for electrical cables

Fibreglass reinforced GRC concrete is a universal material which is used, among others, in ducts and troughs for electric cables. Such casing constructions are often created in places with unfavourable external conditions, where the cables are exposed to destruction. For this reason, it is necessary to use a material with high resistance to adverse weather conditions, as well as non-combustible material, in case of failure of the cable contained inside.[…..]
