Refinery Infrastructure Networks
Cubis has worked closely with some of the largest refinery business’ throughout the Middle East in the provision of integrated systems for fibre telecoms, perimeter protection and under road crossing applications.
Cubis’ systems are widely used throughout the construction of refinery infrastructure networks due to their integrated product approach and intelligent technical design features that deliver modular, scalable and lightweight composite access chambers, access covers and cable protection products. All systems work seamlessly together and can be built on site safely, quickly and with ease.
Cubis’ integrated product approach offers clients a complete range of access chambers, access covers and cable protection systems that have been designed to offer seamless integration for use in the delivery of refinery infrastructure networks.
MULTIduct™ can be installed in formations to achieve multiple duct banks. Stacked to desired height, Multi-banks provide a smooth course of linear buried ducting.
Allowing for two degrees of flexibility when connected, MULTIduct™ creates a natural bend able to follow the curvature of a perimeter fence, road or tunnel installation. This straight lay flat feature, negates the requirement for spacers and eliminates the possibility of twisting which is hugely beneficial when compared with traditional ducting systems during installation.
Under Road Crossing (URX)
URX systems provide a modern method of building an under road crossing in a rapid, yet safe manor significantly reducing road closure times. Incorporating STAKKAbox™ chambers with MULTIduct™, the Cubis URX system is easy to handle as the 1m long 4, 6 or 9 way units are incredibly lightweight at under 20kg.
Shallow and narrow burial depths, due to the high crush strength of the MULTIduct™, negates the need for concrete or specialist surround, and excavated material can be utilised during re-installation, thereby saving time and reducing costs in relation to disposal of excess material.
Cubis’ perimeter protection network access systems have been designed and developed to offer a modern alternative to traditional methods of ducting. Cubis system enables an enhanced security for telecommunications and power networks that run around some of the world’s largest refineries.
Providing a seamless integration between Cubis’ STAKKAbox™ chamber access and MULTIduct™ cable protection products, Cubis’ network access system utilise the MULTIduct™ units buried under the ground providing easier and safer installation, assembly of system and improved build quality.
Developed to replace traditional procedures for the storage of fibre optic, CCTV and power cabling, Cubis’ telecommunication system provides enhanced security through lockable AX-S™ composite and ductile access covers.
The fibre telecoms system seamlessly integrates between Cubis’ STAKKAbox™ chamber access and MULTIduct™ cable protection products to deliver a safe and easy installation, coupled with a straightforward assembly and improved build quality when compared to alternative methods.
Refinery infrastructure networks typically comprise of the following products:
STAKKAbox™ Access Chambers
Providing clients with a complete network access solution and available in a variety of sizes, these lightweight and structural STAKKAbox™ access chambers are easily adaptable and fast to install.
Delivering a 150mm deep stackable unit that can be constructed to the desired height and achieve unsupported vertical load test results of 90 tonnes, chambers can be supplied with a range of time-saving compatible accessories including; steps, cable management, MULTIduct™ spigots, duct entries and bases.
AX-S™ Access Covers
Designed and manufactured to compliment Cubis’ range of chambers and to provide customers with a
complete underground network access system.
AX-S™ access covers can be tailored to meet specified loading requirements from pedestrian (B125) up to carriageway (F900) duty and are available in an extensive variety of clear opening dimensions and depths.
A multiple duct cable protection system, MULTIduct™ is used primarily in the construction of underground ducting systems under roads, tunnels, bridge crossings and buried linear cable routes.
Units are assembled quickly and with ease by connecting metre long sections with a unique push-fit system and are available with a supporting range of accessories to address tight turns, elevations and additional obstacles.
