As energy demands increase, end users want to generate their own electricity and supply the surplus back into the grid. Filoform cable jointing systems are suitable for this and will make an effective contribution to reliable and smart electricity grids.

Filoform taped resin injection joints are used to seal and protect underground low voltage cable connections. We also supply other types of cable joints such as cast resin joints and heat-shrink joints. Our expertise in researching, developing and manufacturing this essential technology spans over 50 years.

Filoform MD-duct sealing systems protect homes and buildings against potential risks such as gas explosions and flooding. The MD-systems prevent the penetration of gas and water through underground power cable ducts, thus avoiding damage and personal injury.

Telecom / CAI

Related products: Cable joints, Sealing systems, Fibre optic seals, Resins, Heat-shrink technology, Tapes

Today’s telecom infrastructures mainly consist of fibre optics combined with a backbone of copper cabling connections. Demand for greater bandwidth is constantly growing on these networks as subscribers seek increased service speed and reliability.

At Filoform, we have developed a range of cable jointing solutions, specifically for the protection of underground copper telecommunications cables and coaxial cables. These cable joints combine the flexibility of heat-shrink applications with a unique sealing material. Our solutions provide high quality protection of the links in ‘the last mile’ to the subscriber.

Our seals provide optimum protection of duct-in-duct and cable-in-duct infrastructure for fibre optic networks. Filoform duct seals ensure both gas and watertight sealing. Underground telecom networks are now optimally protected against the elements, thus contributing to a longer and more reliable infrastructural service life.

Various solutions supplied by Filoform deliver an unseen yet vital contribution to both traffic safety and flow.

For decades, Filoform cable joints have been used in traffic engineering e.g. to connect a loop cable located in the road’s surface to the cable at a traffic control cabinet. Filoform cable joints are also used to connect and provide branches for low voltage cables to street and public lighting.

Expensive equipment in traffic control and electrical cabinets with open bases is protected from moisture by our unique cabinet base sealant. This simple but effective solution provides huge cost savings by preventing equipment failure due to moisture damage.

We also supply specialty resins for bonding objects in the road surface e.g. LED-lighting for dynamic lane markings. Another traffic engineering related product is our quality Nitto protective film. Its uses include the temporary masking of road signs at road works.

Our unique Filoform MD-duct sealing systems are used in both residential and commercial construction for gas and watertight sealing of underground utility cavities. We have been protecting homes and buildings for over 30 years against the ingress of gas and water through utility ducts and infrastructure. The sealing system also prevents damage or personal injury caused by flooding or a gas explosion.

MD-duct sealing systems can be made up to 2 hours fire resistant by applying our MD+ sealant.

For sealing the standard base plate in a Dutch metering room, Filoform have developed a range of sealing plugs that comply with the NEN2768
