Protectorshell Poly076

poly pipe

Protectorshell Poly Articulated Pipe has been developed to provide shallow water abrasion and impact protection for submarine cables.

Protectorshell Poly has all the features of traditional Protectorshell Articulated Pipe combined with a non‐metal material for use where metallic products are not needed or are not able to be used. The key uses for Protectorshell Poly are at higher armoured cable crossing over lower armoured cables, or inshore protection where aggressive microbiological corrosion is an issue. Protectorshell Poly can be interfaced with ductile iron Protectorshell and is available with a wide range of adaptors and attachment.
