Armor Rods / Strand Splice

The AERIALGRIP® dead-end splice is made up of sturdy helical wires used to splice, repair or protect outside plant fiber optic cable as a structural reinforcing layer. This product provides a holding strength equal to the ultimate tensile strength of an EHS grade steel wire. Manufactured with galvanized or aluminized steel; treated with an abrasive material in its inner side to improve grip strength. Installing armor rods improves the conductor’s ability to withstand the fatigue forces associated with aeolian type vibration.
