Flat Drop Cable
Waveoptics® Flat Drop Cable is designed for self-supporting, direct-buried and duct installations. Fully dielectric design, ideal for drop applications, offering ease of access as well as easy installation.
Single loose tube made of PBT which provides great mechanical properties under a wide range of conditions such as crush test and impact test, and is filled with water blocking gel.
PE single jacket with additives makes a resistant, durable and easy to strip cable, providing superior protection against UV radiation, fungus, abrasion and other environmental factors.
Two parallel dielectric strength members that require no bonding or grounding, offering exceptional crush resistance. The FRP strength members are coated with EAA for improved adherence.
