Micro-Trenching Services

Micro-Trenching Services From X-Fibre

The cost of laying cables remains the most expensive element of deploying a full fibre broadband infrastructure to new locations in the UK.

X-Fibre have invested in micro-trenching equipment to improve efficiency in fibre installations saving customers both time and money when completing projects.

In cities, for example, streets on many occasions are closed off while they are dug up – annoying residents, business owners, drivers, and local authorities. Costs for labour, permits/noticing, traffic management and restoration fees are high, adding to budgets and even making some projects uneconomic.

Micro trenching involves digging a narrow trench of between 30mm to 70mm wide and up to 750mm deep. These trenches can then hold multiple micro-ducts for fibre cables. The technique can be used on open highways and pavements where the composite makeup is asphalt. 

X-Fibre specialise in offering micro-trenching services for both our own clients, and we are available to be contracted for other works and projects too.

If you are interested in our micro-trenching services please get in touch. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements.
