Continuous Duct Rodders

Click on image above for a larger view of the Continuous Duct Rodders

 

Now available in either standard core or detectable copper core.

One of the new additions to our line as a result of the acquisition of CBS Products in the UK is our superior line of duct rodders. We’ve brought this technology to GMP where we now produce what are the best performing and most durable duct rodders available anywhere - at a price that represents the very best value. Decades of in-field use have proven this high visibility orange rod material to have the ideal combination of the mechanical properties of tensile strength, modulus, stiffness and bending behavior.

  • When loaded onto our durable yet maneuverable
    dispenser/carriers these duct rodders are fundamentally essential tools for underground tasks such as cleaning and locating ducts, threading lines or pulling cables

  • Rodders come equipped with a male threaded end fitting and tapered head on the leading end and a female threaded fitting on the back end

  • Our carriers are made of tubular steel alloy and are powder coated or electro-galvanized for corrosion resistance. Larger diameter carriers have inboard
    wheels for easier transport at the jobsite. Each carrier
    is fitted with a hand-operated brake to control payout.



    Our fiberglass rod is not pultruded like others. It is produced instead using a proprietary process where glass fibers are strictly unidirectional with optimal fiber density of 80%. The fibers are fully impregnated in resin and then bi-axially wound with hi-strength filaments before being completely embedded in the orange polypropylene thermoplastic jacket. This gives our rod its excellent handling characteristics throughout its long life without the protruding reinforcement fibers that can appear over time in other rods.

Note: Duct Rodders are made to order. Verify length and diameter when ordering. Due to custom nature of every Duct Rodder order, all orders are non-returnable. Custom sizes available.

Please refer to the following tables for specific lengths in each size.

Toneable Duct Rodders

The GMP toneable duct rodders are available in 3/8" and 1/2 " diameter. Detectable duct rods are used to find, follow and accurately map the duct route without digging or trenching. The traceable duct rod is used in conjunction with both a signal transmitter and a receiver. The easily identifiable signal is transmitted along the entire length of the duct rod.




The toneable duct rod has an 18 AWG copper wire, almost twice the size of the competition, in the center of the fiberglass core. The copper wire is also connected to the end fittings so the transmitter leads can make a direct connection to the copper wire. The female end fitting provides the attachment point for the transmitter's lead connection. The other transmitter lead is connected to a stake driven into the earth. The direct connection of the signal to the copper wire provides the most effective method of signal transmission.

Duct Rodder Features

• Our Duct Rodders are light weight, durable and corrosion resistant. They are coated with a tough UV stabilized safety orange Polypropylene and, are not affected by water.

• They will not soften or lose tensile strength in hot weather, nor become brittle under cold conditions.

• Each Duct Rodder Frame assists the payout/pay-in of the rod material by using an eyebolt with a nylon bushing. The bushing is designed to protect the duct rod from abrasion and premature wear
