What is a duct bank – A duct bank is a central storage location for a utility cable network that is comprised of PVC or other pipe to protect electrical and or data cables. The advantage of this is that it protects the cables from any type of weather or excavation on the jobsite. Another advantage of duct banks are their ability to be upgraded or repaired easily due to their methodical numbering and placement.
Why you need a duct bank calculator – In order to make a sufficiently sized trench and estimate the correct volume of conduit needed you must compute all the variables into a duct bank calculation formula. In order to become an expert on this formula Noramco is offering a duct bank calculation webinar to share this ability.

- Easy to upgrade cable
- Protection from weather
- Convenient central wire storage
- Protection from damage during construction
Applications for duct banks
