Opticell flexible duct

Opticell Flexible Inner Duct

Opticell™ Flexible Inner Duct

OptiCell is a flexible fabric inner duct system designed to increase cable deployment efficiency, enabling installation of up to 30% more cables than rigid HDPE inner duct in conduit based network infrastructure. The only patented fabric inner duct, OptiCell’s unique textile construction allows it to conform to the shape of cables placed within. Hence greatly reducing the wasted space associated with rigid inner ducts, thus increasing conduit capacity.


The Opticell flexible duct is an innovation from Milliken, a textile technology company, who have the world’s largest private textile research facility. Opticell is one of Milliken’s world leading cable management solutions.

Space Saving

OptiCell flexible duct saves its users significant project costs by increasing cable density in network infrastructure. Therefore greenfield applications require smaller trenches, smaller vaults, and less conduit while still providing channels for future network expansions. By being able to override existing cables in conduits previously thought to be full, OptiCell offers a NO DIG solution in today’s network expansion projects.
