We work in residential and commercial properties to install and repair and maintain telecommunications cables; This could be phone lines, internet cables or cable TV. Our conscientious planning combined with years of experience and well-trained engineers ensures that our cable installations are carried out safely, steadily and on time.
We utilise all the latest equipment including blowing machines, cable winches, cable drum jacks and drum trailers, all of which are carefully maintained and inspected at regular intervals to comply with current legislation.
We offer a comprehensive range of cable jointing, terminating and splicing services.
Twisted pair cable consists of insulated copper wire pairs, twisted together.
Twisted pair cabling comes in two varieties: Shielded and unshielded. The quality of unshielded may vary from telephone grade wire to extremely high-speed cable. The cable has multi pairs of wires inside the jacket. Each pair is twisted with a different number of twists per inch to help eliminate interference from adjacent pairs and other electrical devices. The tighter the twisting, the higher the supported transmission rate.
Coaxial Cabling has a single Copper conductor at its centre.
A plastic layer provides insulation between the centre conductor and a braided metal or foil shield. The metal or foil shield helps to block any outside interference. Although coaxial cabling is difficult to install, it is highly resistant to signal interference. In addition, it can support greater cable lengths between network devices than twisted pair cable. The larger coaxial cables such as 860, 540, TX10, RG11 and RG6 are mainly used for the cable TV industry.
Fibre optic cabling consists of a glass core surrounded by several layers of protective materials.
It transmits light rather than electronic signals eliminating the problem of electrical interference. This makes it ideal for certain environments that contain a large amount of electrical interference. It has also made it the standard for connecting networks between buildings, due to its immunity to the effects of moisture and lighting.
Fibre optic cable can transmit signals over much longer distances than coaxial and twisted pair. It also has the capability to carry information at greater speeds. This capacity broadens communication possibilities to include services such as video conferencing and interactive services. The cost of fibre optic cabling is comparable to copper cabling; however, it is more difficult to install and modify.
There are two common types of fibre cables: Single Mode and Multimode. These come in multiple sizes and configuration from 288 fibre down to 2 fibre also from 8 fibre per tube up to 12 fibre per tube.
This is where fibre optic cable is propelled down a length of pre-installed tubing (duct) with a combination of air and mechanical pushing.Blown cable has four components;
The microduct consists of multiple individual tubes, bundled into a single sheath. The fibre packages of units are designed to be blown into preplaced tubes using a compressed gas-system. Tubes are connected by splices and connectors that route the fibres from one continuous pipe to the next. On the ends of each run the tubes require fittings.
