Installation Information

Rigid Galvanized ConduitRGS Schedule 40 Conduit-

A minimum 36” trench is typical for most wireless construction with a 6” horizontal spacing between multiple conduits. A 6” caution tape is usually required approximately 1’ below grade level. Minimum NEC burial depth requirements must be observed, but the local utility has the final say. Prior to excavating it is recommended that you contact the local service provider and ensure that you’re aware of their requirements.

Also, contact the telephone company and utility company to see if telco can be buried in the same excavation. Sometimes you’ll be required to provide separate Calculator trenches.

The default installation pricing below (under 100') is the cost that a subcontractor will charge to connect and place the rigid conduit in an opened trench while on site. Pricing is adjusted for longer runs. It does not include pulling conductors or any material.
