Dutch Semi-Permanent Military Base Installation
Cubis Systems along with their partner GM products recently had the privilege to attend a Dutch military training installation of Cubis’ network access and cable protection products, to be used in semi-permanent military bases. This installation was to trial Cubis’ system for both their power and telecom infrastructure networks.
For the installation training, they created an underground network system using Cubis’ cable protection system MULTIduct™ and access chamber system STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect.
MULTIduct™ is an innovative, lightweight, structural, multiple duct system that offers a modern alternative to traditional cable ducting systems. Most commonly used in the construction of under track or road crossings, tunnels, bridge crossings and buried linear routes MULTIduct™ offers an easily deployed and accessible cable management system.
MULTIduct™ also offers seamless integration with Cubis’ range of chamber access products such as STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect, enabling enhanced cable management and access. MULTIduct™ can be integrated into STAKKAbox™ access chambers on-site, or alternatively spigots can be pre-assembled and delivered as a single unit.
The Cubis range of products have many features that matched the military’s requirements, such as being lightweight, easy to handle and along with the added benefit of being easily transported.
The modular properties of the STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect access chamber system, meant that the chambers could be flat-packed and transported by air allowing for international deployment, in a rapid timeframe. By using the lightweight modular ‘flat pack’ components there was a reduction in transport weight and no specialist equipment was required in comparison to a traditionally built precast concrete chamber system.
The Cubis product range is suitable for underground infrastructure networks and is widely used within sectors such as the Telecoms, Power & Energy, Rail, Water and Highways.
For the training installation, the military tailored the ULTIMA Connect chambers and MULTIduct™ system for a mix of both power and telecommunication utilities.
Cubis has developed an innovative approach in a traditional industry. This has been achieved by developing quality products which replace traditional construction materials, like bricks and concrete, with lightweight composite, modular and scale-able products incorporating intelligent design features.
These can then be installed faster and ultimately save our customers both time and money, and along with the flexibility and adaptability of the Cubis product range we can better meet our clients specifications.
