Cable ducts


for the installation of power and data lines.

Plastic cable ducts

Quick, flexible and safe installation of your signaling and communication tools

More than 1 Mio. meters of our cable ducts have been installed by Deutsche Bahn AG and many other companies around the world. Our cable ducts are also applied in solar arrays, wind power plants and other installations.

Our experience in combination with the wide range of applications of cable ducts made by Wirthwein provides many solutions to a great variety of structural requirements. Our portfolio includes extensive supplementary equipment with which we implement your project. We manufacture angle elements for redirections tailored to individual customer requirements. It is possible to insert separators in cable ducts to isolate or separate lines. Moreover, we offer matching end plates to be assembled at the end of tracks. Cable ducts made by Wirthwein can be fixed with pegs for above-ground installation or very loose ground. Special screws additionally lock cable duct covers and provide for an increased protection.
