Section 1. Corrugated and smooth pipes
1.1. In what temperature range can corrugated pipe be used?
   According to the technical specifications, the installation of PVC pipes can be carried out in the temperature range from -5 ° C to + 60 ° C, the installation of HDPE pipes can be carried out in the temperature range from -25 ° C to + 60 ° C, the operating temperature range of the ambient air is from - 40 ° C to + 45 ° C. The mechanical properties of PVC material allow the use of products with external deformation in the temperature range: - 5 ° C to + 60 ° C. In the absence of external deformations, the products can withstand the temperature range: -40 ° C - + 60 ° C. However, the physical properties of HDPE (high density polyethylene) make it possible to operate in a wider range under the condition of external deformation: - 25 ° C to + 60 ° C, and in its absence: -30 ° C to + 60 ° C.
1.2. Overall dimensions and weight of corrugated pipe packaging?
   Diameter of the corrugated pipe coil depending on the pipe section: from 580 to 650 mm, coil height: from 170 to 250 mm. Gross weight: 3.6 to 4.8 kg.
1.3. Which pipe is intended for pouring into concrete?
   A system of heavy corrugated pipes and a rigid pipe made of PVC and HDPE compositions are intended for pouring into concrete.
1.4. What are the general rules for laying corrugated pipes?
   The laying of each type of communications is carried out in its own, intended only for these purposes, pipes and boxes at a certain distance from each other.
   It is undesirable to lay power and low-current cables in one pipe at the same time. Separation of networks along their lines will allow avoiding pickup of power cables on low-current ones.
   Internal communications, created on the basis of corrugated pipes, allow the use of interchangeable wiring throughout the entire life of the building.
1.5. What is the difference between a "light" pipe and a "heavy" one?
   Pipes of these series differ in strength difference. According to technical conditions, light-type pipes withstand loads in the range of 350-370 N / 5kv.cm at T = 20 ° C, this is quite enough when laying cables inside plasterboard walls, along any walls and ceilings.
   Heavy pipes can withstand a load of over 750 N / 5 sq. Cm at T = 20 ° C. Due to their high resistance to mechanical loads, pipes of a heavy series are used mainly for pouring into concrete or under conditions with increased strength requirements.
1.6. What is a flexible pipe plug for?
   During construction, after laying the pipe in the wall, it is necessary to close the open ends of the pipe with plugs. This should be done to avoid the ingress of various construction debris or moisture into the pipelines. At the end of construction work, by the time the cables are installed, the plugs are removed.
   If an additional pipe line is laid, but no cable is laid, it is recommended to install plugs on the ends of the pipe before installing the cables.
1.7. Does the plastic pipe withstand UV radiation?
   Certainly. Similar to plasticizers and modifiers in PVC compositions, UV stabilizers are used in the formulation of raw materials for the production of pipes, which make it possible to withstand UV radiation up to certain thresholds. In the everyday sense, this effect is similar to the color fastness of plastic window structures, since similar stabilizers are used in pipe formulations.
1.8. How does a plastic pipe behave at low temperatures?
   With a decrease in temperature, the pipe becomes more fragile and may lose its initial elasticity, and during deformations, various fractures, cracking and rupture may occur. This is directly related to the mechanical properties of the PVC and HDPE material itself. When the temperature returns to within the application ranges, the pipe recovers its properties.
1.9. Why do you need a broach in the form of a steel cable inside corrugated pipes.
   EKOPLAST corrugated pipes are produced in several types, including with and without a probe. The broach (probe) is used to pull the cable inside the installed pipe, i.e. the cable clings to one end, and the other end is pulled. Thus, the cable quickly finds itself inside the pipe. After pulling the cable, the steel broach (probe) is thrown away. However, this is far from an unambiguous decision.
   As a rule, the use of corrugated pipes with a broach is characteristic of Russia and some Eastern European countries, because the same way of laying the cable can be applied with a reusable broach made of steel or nylon (EKOPLAST articles: 42205… .42330). These broaches serve for 5-7 years and allow the use of corrugated pipes without a probe, thus saving considerable money over several years.
1.10. Is there a complete set of necessary certificates for EKOPLAST corrugated pipes?
   The required certificates are located in the SUPPORT section of the website . You can download them from this section or contact the Ecoplast office or the Ecoplast Dealer.    A required certificate on the territory of the Russian Federation is a fire safety certificate. Other certificates - conformity and Hygienic Conclusion, are voluntary, since the requirements of these systems are regulated by the TU standards and the composition of raw materials. However, these types of certificates were also obtained by the EKOPLAST plant and can be viewed in the above section of the site. 
1.11. I would like to know if we have chosen the right NOVO pipe system for laying the fiber optic cable in the ground when creating a connection between buildings?
   Yes, that's right. This series is widely used for laying underground. The pipes of the NOVA series are double insulated, i.e. the upper surface of the pipe has a corrugated appearance; a smooth pipe runs inside this pipe. Thus, it is an ideal solution for fiber-optic wiring and power cables when switching neighboring buildings.
1.12. What is the filling capacity of corrugated and rigid smooth pipe systems with wires?
   System filling no more than 80.
1.13. How is the degree of protection of the corrugated and rigid pipe system IP55 and IP65 achieved?
   Using accessories and junction boxes with IP55 and IP65 protection degrees.
1.14. What fasteners should be used to fix the HDPE pipe system at temperatures down to -25 °?
   For installation temperatures between -5 ° and -25 °, metal brackets should be used.
1.15. Why do you recommend not to lay low-current and power cables in the same minichannel or pipe?
   It should be noted that at considerable distances there will be mutual interference between the bundles of power and low-current cables and wires, which leads to interference in the reception and transmission of signals, in particular, for television, computer and security and fire systems. Therefore, the space between the cable or bundle of homogeneous cables and the inner surface of the pipe, filled with air, serves as an air cushion and is an "insulator" of pickups with a divided laying system. Partitions are used for this in cable ducts.
Section 2. Boxes
2.1. Overall dimensions and weight of packaging with boxes for the MEX / ECO series and the INSTA series?
   Length 2000 mm, width 25 mm, height 25 mm. Weight from 12 to 20 kg, depending on the channel section and its article.
2.2. Where can I get your wholesale price list?
   The price list can be downloaded from the website at price , contact the office by phone: (095) 784-67-40 or request the nearest dealer of the EKOPLAST plant. The list of dealers is posted on the website in the "DEALERS" section . The amount of discount that Dealers provide to a customer is generally determined by the picking process, financial history of the relationship, and dealer policy.   
2.3. How much do you place an order for?
   The company's policy is based on a two-stage distribution of products, i.e. The customer purchases products from the partners of the Plant - Dealers. There are minor exceptions for strategic projects. If you have developed a position - to become a Dealer of the Plant, please send a request for intentions to our address.
2.4. What are the general rules for laying corrugated pipes?
   The laying of each type of communications is carried out in its own, intended only for these purposes, pipes and boxes at a certain distance from each other.
   It is undesirable to lay power and low-current cables in one pipe at the same time. Separation of networks along their lines will allow avoiding pickup of power cables on low-current ones.
   Internal communications, created on the basis of corrugated pipes, allow the use of interchangeable wiring throughout the entire life of the building.
2.5. Is it possible to mount sockets in EKOPLAST boxes and are there any necessary frames for this?
   EKOPLAST plant produces several series of cable ducts:
   - MEX series (minichannels) - for the installation of modular sockets / switches and connectors (45x45), an SMP box is used, and the boxes are joined in a row without restrictions. This means you can install any number of sockets and connectors in a row. The second solution is designed for any European standard wiring products with a bore diameter between screws D60 mm. For this, a box type SM is used. These boxes also fit together and you can use the frames from the series of outlets you have chosen. For example, you have 4 different BERKER sockets, choose 4 SM boxes (EKOPLAST) and one frame for 4 BERKER places.    - INSTA series  
  (office channels) - for mounting like the MEX series, two types of supports (frames) are used. For modular products (45x45) - support PM45 and you can insert any sockets of this standard, and for European standard with D60mm - support EM60. Similar to the MEX series of minichannels, the calipers can be installed without restrictions.
2.6. Explain why a double lock is used in EKOPLAST cable ducts and what is the difference from a conventional lock.
   The design of the double lock is at the heart of the world's leading manufacturers of cable systems. The reason is the reliable fixation of the lid during repeated opening and closing. Those. the cover does not dangle after laying or wiring an additional bundle. Initially, the idea of ​​a double lock was developed in England in the 70s of the last century and then introduced into the standard of a number of European countries. The double lock standard is currently used in England, France, Spain, Germany and most of Eastern Europe. The security of the double lock standard is much higher than that of a conventional lock. The design of an ordinary castle is still supported by several factories in Turkey and Poland. However, the tendency of the final transition to the type of double lock can be traced in the last 5 years in these countries.
2.7. Can you be sure that the boxes are not burning?
   Definitely yes. EKOPLAST cable ducts are produced from compositions based on PVC resins and modifiers, stabilizers that prevent combustion. The PVC resin itself is flame retardant as a raw material. In combination with additives in EKOPLAST formulations, the channel material is flame-resistant. Corresponding tests are carried out by certification bodies to confirm the fire safety certificate annually. You can find the fire safety certificate on this website in the SUPPORT section or obtain it from the Ecoplast office or from the Dealer of the Plant. If necessary, you will be provided with test reports.
2.8. How many partitions can be put in the INSTA box (100x55) to separate the networks into cable bundles?
   INSTA type ducts have a base with 3 slots for fixing a cable shelf - separator, so the section 100x55 can be divided into 2, 3 and 4 sections using RSE partition (Article 73911)
2.9. How to hide the docking points of channels with each other and the points of connection to junction boxes and socket boxes?
   To hide the channel joint, the "joint to joint" (MU, RU) is used, and when connecting to junction boxes and boxes for open-wired mini-channel sockets, a "universal adapter" (ASMP) is used. It consists of 3 parts for all sections of the MEX series, so you just need to insert it in accordance with the section of the channel that you have chosen.
2.10. What is the packaging for cable ducts?
   Without exception, all EKOPLAST channels are packed in multilayer cardboard boxes with markings and look like similar European packages. The plant does not pack channels in film without cardboard packaging, as many Turkish and some Russian manufacturers do, since packaging in film for channels does not meet the requirements for transportation and storage.
2.11. What is the degree of protection for your cable duct?
   IP 21-44
2.12. What current are the sockets installed in your box rated for?
   10 to 16 A.
2.13. Is it possible to install the box outdoors?
   The box is intended for indoor installation only. However, if you are pulling the highway (i.e., you are not going to lay the sockets in the box, in practice, the use of such an installation is possible if there is a closure from the penetration of snow and rain.
2.14. How are accessories fixed to the box?
   The accessories are fixed over the box cover thanks to the guides located on the inside of the accessory. The system has internal latches.
2.15. What mechanical load can the boxes withstand?
   6 J.
2.16. How is the support attached to the box?
   Using the fixing screws located at the top and bottom of the caliper base. The screws are made of polyamide. It is enough to make a 90-degree turn and the caliper base is securely attached to the box. Unlike similar solutions, this idea allows you to get rid of the problem of "sliding" calipers. It remains only to snap the caliper cover with a slight movement.
2.17. Do you produce duct tape boxes?
   Issuance is possible within 10 days, subject to market demand. It should be noted that the technology allows such a performance.
2.18. Are you planning to release color cable ducts?
   Issuance is possible within 7 days, subject to market demand and order volume, regardless of color. Linear technology EKOPLAST allows such a design.
   The price may rise slightly depending on the selected color and shade. In reality, the market demand is very low, and this is the main reason for the non-mass production of color channels.
2.19. What is the difference between the FEX series minichannel and the ECO series?
   The ECO minichannel series is developed using the technology for the MEX series. When designing tools for production, geometry similar to the MEX series was used. However, the ECO series is positioned in the "economy class" segment and is intended for distribution in regional projects with small budgets. The PVC compound formula for the ECO series is somewhat different from the composition of the MEX series.
2.20. How are cable ducts tested in the framework of "Fire certification"?
   Tests are carried out:
- an open flame burner with a diameter (9.5 mm)
- a heated wire at T (550-1100 ° C)
- a heated balloon (pressure) at T (0-200 ° C)
   Time, modes and test method are the development of test laboratories in accordance with the regulations of VNIIPO RF.
   Samples are subjected to all of the above test procedures. According to the conclusion of the test results for EKOPLAST products: "The appearance of a flame, combustion, glow (actual) - the combustion extinguishes in less than 1 second."
2.21. Why are EKOPLAST channels better, especially the ECO series, when compared with Turkish and Chinese boxes?
   1) EKOPLAST plant manufactures all products in Russia, so you, as a consumer or partner, remove the export component of the cost of import duties and freight costs from abroad.
   2) The high productivity of the EKOPLAST plant allows ensuring the minimum order time (not weeks, but hours or days!).
   3) All EKOPLAST channels are designed and manufactured taking into account the European standard and safety requirements for electrical wiring. The wall thickness of boxes of any of the EKOPLAST series is at least 30-35 more, for example, Turkish channels, which really guarantees mechanical protection in case of shock and, most importantly, fire safety! The duct wall thickness is calculated in accordance with the European Standard and is equivalent to most ducts from Germany, Italy and France. Sometimes, customers do not think about the fact that in addition to aesthetics (covering the stretching wires inside the room), cable ducts fulfill the main task - the task of safety! Therefore, taking into account the statistics of fires, especially in the megalopolises of
Russia, it is common sense to install guaranteed safe systems of cable channels and pipes.
2.22. What is "post"?
   A post is a seat in a frame for one or more wiring accessories, which include all types of sockets, switches, switches, dimmers, thermostats, including low-current sockets for TV, computer, telephone, etc.
   One frame LK STUDIO (series: LK60, LK VINTAGE, LK FLAT, LK Classic) can be used from one to five posts.
   The LK45 series uses modules - i.e. some products are made more compact and some types of switch-switches can already be supplied in two pieces in one post, i.e. in one frame. This also applies to some types of low-current products.
2.23. What is the difference between an illuminated switch and an indicator switch?
   The illuminated switch has a built-in LED light used to determine the location of the switch (even at night). It works in the OFF position of the switch. In the dark, you can easily find where your switch is located in order to press the key and turn off the light.
   In the case of a switch with indication, the LED lamp serves to determine the operability of the load. If in the ON position of the switch, the indication lamp is on, it means that there is a load. This is useful when turning on remote loads (for example, lights in a closet, shed, in another part of the house, etc.).
   Both options are used in the LK STUDIO series, but the most demanded are switches and switches with illumination.
2.24. What is a two-place switch (checkpoint)?
   Detailed description: A  switch "from two places" (sometimes it is called "two-way" or "through") is a device that allows you to control one load from 2 locations (ie two such switches are used). Despite the rather complicated name, this is a very simple device. A bi-directional switch can work as a simple switch, and it is quite easy to distinguish it from a conventional switch - it has three contacts for connection. Usage example:
    If you want to turn on and off the light in the living room from two places - from the corridor at the entrance to the living room and in the living room itself or from the kitchen - then this scheme is just implemented using two switches in 2 directions (or what is the same - a pass-through switch) ... To collect the circuit on such switches, a 3-core cable is required in the wiring.
2.25. What is an "intermediate (or cross)" switch?
   To control lighting from three or more places, an intermediate switch is used (sometimes it is called a "cross", "cross" - from a cruciform circuit of contacts inside the switch). He (or they - if there are more than 3 control points) are placed between two switches in 2 directions. By itself, the intermediate switch (in contrast to the pass-through) will not work with the load. These switches are useful in long corridors with entrances to multiple rooms.
2.26. What loads are LK STUDIO dimmers suitable for?
   Dimmers (dimmers) LK STUDIO can be used with most types of modern lamps. On the website, for each proposed dimmer, a detailed description is given with an indication of the maximum adjustable power and types of load, as well as a diagram of its connection with a description of its functionality. The main types of loads with which the dimmers work: 1. Incandescent lamps 2. 220V halogen lamps 3. Ferromagnetic (winding) transformers 4. Electronic transformers.  



2.27. Can the LK STUDIO dimmer be used as a pass-through switch?
   Yes, all types of LK dimmers can be used in this way. You will find three connection terminals at the mechanism of all dimmers (dimmers), one of which is used to switch the dimmer as a pass-through switch in the circuit, and the two extreme ones are directly used to connect the phase and zero.
Section 3. Raw materials and materials
3.1. Could you explain the chemical properties of PVC?
   PVC is obtained by block (PVC-M), suspension (PVC-S) and emulsion (PVC-E) polymerization. Its chemical formula: [-CH 2 -CHC1-] n . 
   It is an amorphous thermoplastic with a molecular weight of 40-150 thousand, PVC is sharply gulidisperse. The melting point of PVC is 165-200 ° C. On the other hand, a huge advantage of PVC is that from the same PVC, by mixing it with various additives (modification), you can obtain materials with a variety of properties from highly elastic (the state of a silicone twister) to solid with high impact resistance. A material containing PVC and other additives that ensure its technological and operational properties is called a polyvinyl chloride composition. It is with this material that we come across in everyday life; for convenience, we will call it simply PVC. Polyvinyl chloride compositions are intermediate products for the production of products: cable and wire products, pipes, hoses, molded products, various profiles, etc.Depending on the presence of various components, these compositions are resistant to aging, ultraviolet radiation, some chemically aggressive media, frost. At the same time, the high chlorine content makes PVC self-extinguishing.
   PVC is available in the form of powders, granules and plastisols. Depending on the degree of plasticization, PVC is produced in the form of vinyl plastic and plastic.
Viniplast is a rigid, practically unplasticized PVC containing stabilizers and lubricating additives. With the correct selection of stabilizer complexes, the destruction temperature rises to 180-220 ° C, which allows its processing from the melt. Viniplast has high physical properties, which makes it a structural material widely used in mechanical engineering and construction (pipes, moldings, fittings, glass units, etc.)
Physical properties Viniplast Plasticate
Density, kg / cubic meter 1380-1400 1100-1300
Breaking stress, MPa, at: tensile bending 35-65, 100-120 10-13
Elongation at break,% 10-50 100-250
Impact strength, kJ / sq.m 10-50 -
Brinell hardness, MPa 130-160 1-6
Thermal resistance according to Martens, ° С 65-70 -
Frost resistance, ° С to 10 up to 50
Dielectric constant at 10 6 Hz 3.1-3.4 -
Dielectric loss tangent at 10 6 Hz 0.015-0.020 0.05-0.10
Specific volumetric electrical resistance, Ohm * M 1014-1015 1010-1013
   Viniplast  has good light fastness, can be welded and glued. Non-toxicity of PVC up to 80 ° C allows its use in the food industry and medicine. Plastic compound is a PVC containing up to 50% of a plasticizer, which greatly facilitates its processing into products and expands the range of practical use (films, hoses, artificial leather, linoleum, oilcloths, etc.). Frost-resistant plastic compounds.
