Protectorshell Articulated Pipe is a clip together cable protection system developed to provide shallow water abrasion and impact protection for fiber optic cables, subsea cables (submarine cables) and offshore wind cables.
Protectorshell's Cable Protection System (CPS) is suitable for installation and recovery in water depths down to 100m. Protectorshell articulated pipe has been used on various submarine cable for shore-ends, cable pipeline crossings, undersea cable protection, post installation cable protection and offshore wind cable protection.
The strength and simplicity of the Protectorshell articulated pipe cable protection system makes it a viable solution to a wide range of cable and flow line protection problems, both on land and at sea.
Protectorshell articulated pipe (split pipe) is manufactured from ductile iron which retains the corrosion resistance of traditional cast iron but is far stronger.
Protectorshell comes in a variety of sizes from 55mm ID up to 260 mm ID with the possibility to investigate manufacturing to larger/different sizes depending on requirement.
Protectorshell's cable protection system is manufactured in Barcelona and Valladolid in Spain and in Adelaide, Australia.
A wide range of adaptors, attachments and accessories are available for the Protectorshell articulated pipe cable protection system. Protectorshell's offering also includes accessories designed for the offshore wind industry including J-Tube Seals, Bend Restrictors (Cable Bend Protection) and Bend Stiffeners for offshore cable protection, floating wind cable protection and subsea cable protection.
Protectorshell Poly is our non-metal product with all the features of our Articulated Pipe products combined for use where metallic products are not able to be used. Protectorshell Poly are used at higher armoured cable crossing over lower armoured cables, or inshore protection where aggressive microbiological corrosion is an issue.
