OMNI’s fiberglass duct comes in standard 0.070” wall, heavy 0.090” wall, and bullet resistant 0.250” wall for the ultimate protection in lightweight conduit. Compare it to steel or strength, weight, and lower overall installation costs.

  • COST-EFFICIENT REPLACEMENT FOR STEEL IN MANY HIGH RISK AREAS.
  • BULLET-RESISTANT, HEAVIER WALL THAN SW, HW WALL. RESISTANT TO NUMEROUS TYPES OF AMMUNITION.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION amp LOWER INSTALLATION AND BRIDGE PERMITTING COST.
  • NON-CORROSIVE – HIGHLY RESISTANT TO CORROSIVE ROAD CHEMICALS, SALT, BACTERIA, WEATHER CONDITIONS AND ULTRA-VIOLET DECOMPOSITION.
  • FIBERGLASS’S LONG SERVICE LIFE MEANS IT WILL NOT CORRODE, DETERIORATE OR DECOMPOSE.
  • WIDE SERVICE-TEMPERATURE RANGE.
  • NON-CONDUCTIVE PROPERTIES OF FIBERGLASS ELIMINATES DAMAGING ELECTROLYSIS WILL NOT OCCUR.
  • FULL SYSTEM CONFIGURATION INCLUDES A COMPLETE LINE OF FACTORY BENDS, EXPANSION JOINTS AND BRIDGE HANGERS.
Bullet-Resistant
  • Heavier wall than SW, HW wall fiberglass: hardened surface is resistant to numerous types of ammunition.
  • Cost-efficient replacement for steel in many high risk areas.
Lightweight
  • 70% lighter than steel (31b/ft. vs 11 lb/ft.).
  • Workers can easily lift and carry sections, eliminating the need for expen¬sive handling equipment.
  • Reduces worker fatigue.
Lower Installed Cost
  • Due to lighter weight, it’s available in longer 20 ft. sections. That means fewer joints and therefore, less installation labor.
  • Lighter weight also reduces bridge permitting costs, when permits are based on weight.
  • High strength reduces the quantity of support hardware, such as bridge hangers, by as much as 50%.
  • Non-conductive material eliminates the need for expensive insulated bridge hangers.
Non-corrosive
  • Highly resistant to corrosive road chemicals, salt, bacteria, weather conditions and ultra-violet decomposition.
Long service life
  • Adhesive-bonded male and female ends assure a permanent, water-tight seal.
  • Fiberglass material is essentially inert; it will not corrode, deteriorate or decompose.
Wide service¬-temperature range
  • Remains stable and rigid over a temperature range from -40° to +200° F.
  • Will not become brittle in extreme cold or deform from heat generated by short¬ term electrical overloads.
  • Expansion and contraction forces are minimal.
Non-conductive
  • Due the non-metallic material properties of fiberglass, damaging electrolysis will not occur.
Full system configuration
  • Available with a complete line of factory bends, expansion joints and bridge hangers to accommodate virtually any installation requirement.
Bullet-Resistant
  • Heavier wall than regular fiberglass: hardened surface is resistant to numerous types of ammunition.
  • Cost-efficient replacement for steel in many high risk areas.
