Underground Cable Covers
Astron Plastics is one of Australasia’s largest manufacturer of AS4702-2000 underground polymeric cable cover. Aston’s cable cover provides long-term protection to safeguard infrastructure investment from damage in the future.
Astron’s cable cover is batch tested every shift for AS4702-2000 conformance, tested by the CSIRO for adherence to the standard and TUV Rheinland certified. Astron New Zealand produce all of their underground cable cover to ISO9001.
In early 2014, Astron Australia applied for the globally recognised TUV Rheinland conformance certificate to be applied onto its AS4702 polymeric cable cover. We undertook this to differentiate our product in the market and reassure our clients that our cable cover is second to none when it comes to quality. Please download the TUV Rheinland brochure to understand further the benefits of purchasing Astron’s cable cover.
