CableGuard Cable-in-Conduit

4 cable on stand

CableGuard™ is a pre-assembled cable-in-conduit system that is installed under factory conditions.  During the extrusion of HDPE conduit in the factory, the cables are inserted thereby permitting lengths over 10,000 feet, depending on conduit size. Coiled on solid metal reels of 14 or 11 ga. steel manufactured in-house by Petroflex, CableGuard™ payout is easy during installation and the reels are returnable.  Call 1-800-433-5711 for information on returns. for reel capacities.Click here




TC-25 Polyethylene resin is a prime naturally high density PE copolymer used in the manufacture of CableGuard™ and meets or exceeds the material requirements outlined in the NEC Code-Article 353, ASTM F2160, and NEMA TC-7.  This compound balances ESCR, stiffness, and molecular weight to provide required toughness and crush strength.  Only virgin prime material is used in all CableGuard™ ducts.

Most sizes of cable can be furnished in ducts ranging from 1/2″ to 3″ as long as it complies with NEC fill rates.

CableGuard™ used in almost any underground application provides:

  • Lower initial cost compared to PVC and wire
  • Significant lifetime cost savings compared to direct burial
  • Less equipment & supplies, man hours, and damage to cable
  • Ability to withstand low temperatures
  • Ability to adjust to ground movement and heaving
  • No laying out of cable along the trench
  • No blowing string then pulling wire
  • No expensive factory made elbows, bends & offsets
  • 50% lower coefficient of friction than PVC
  • Gopher resistant at 1 -1/2″ OD and Nutria resistant at 2″ OD
  • Ease of cable upgrades
