Utilising steel tubing to protect communication cables

There is a wide array of uses for ERW steel tube, including applications in the agricultural, construction, and water industries. The tubes are even utilised occasionally in the communications industry to provide protection for buried cables. Whatever the application it is important that the tubing is made to the highest standards so that it is an accurate shape, has the required strength and durability, and will have a long life cycle.

Using ERW tubes in the communication sector to protect cabling is a good idea, especially when you think about the high value of products like super fast fibre optics. The tubing can protect the cables from moisture, pests and ground swells too. The tube will keep them safe, reducing the risk of breakage and helping the provider to deliver a service with fewer interruptions.

ERW tubes are cost effective to manufacture, offering savings over seamless tubes and other types of seamed. The use of electricity creates a strong, high quality weld whilst also keeping the heat zone on the tube as narrow as possible. This means the tube will retain its shape very well and have a great surface finish.
