Description

Loose Tube Single-Armored Flat Ribbon Fiber Cable

Loose Tube Ribbon cables is designed for outdoor applications, these cables can be installed in ducts as well as for duct and aerial (lashed) installation, and they are known because of their outstanding carrying capacity.

Ribbon units are stranded around a fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) central strength member with PE is surrounded with water blocking yarns.

Dielectric central strength member requires no bonding or grounding.

Corrugated steel armor makes a rugged cable rodent resistant and offers exceptional performance against compression.
