Direct Burial Cabling

What is Direct burial cabling

Direct burial cable is a special type cable that is designed to be run in a trench underground without the use of conduit to surround it. The electrical wires are encased in a thermoplastic sheath that seals out moisture and protects the wires within.

Direct burial cable, often called exterior-rated cable or UF cable (short for underground feeder), comes in a gray jacket and is approved, when installed at the proper depth, location, and properly sized, for burial in a trench. We handle the digging, placement of the cable, and restoring the land to previous condition for you and will terminate the cables appropriately.

Patch panels, data racks, and wire management

Does your equipment room or data center look like it could use an overhaul? We will clean up your cable runs leaving everything tied down in a neat and orderly manner, clearly labled, and - best of all - easy to maintain in the future.
