Securing the ducts

At the end of last year, before the REALLY bitter cold set in, we needed to secure all aspects of the site to ensure that the ice and snow did not get into some of the more fragile areas.

Within the RF-container, there are cable ducts that come up out of the floor of the container lobby, and which contain the signal cables, optical fibre and electrical supply cables. These all need to be protected. For this, a combination of timber, polystyrene and geotextile felt was used to block all holes and provide some shielding.


The above photograph shows the work as it was partially complete. The signal cables are on the right hand side coming up out of the ducts to go into the patch panel.
