Corning Self Supporting Figure 8 Aerial Fiber Optic Cable
Corning Cable Systems ALTOS Figure-8 Gel-Free cables are self-supporting aerial cables designed for easy and economical one-step installation. The loose tube design provides stable performance over a wide temperature range and is compatible with any telecommunications grade optical fiber. The gel-free design is fully water blocked using craft-friendly water-swellable materials, making cable access simple and requiring no clean up.
While the flexible, craft-friendly buffer tubes are easy
to route in closures, the SZ-stranded, loose tube design
isolates optical fibers from installation and environmental
rigors and facilitates mid-span access. The figure-8
cable design allows easy, one-step installation, using
standard hardware and installation methods. These cables have a medium-density polyethylene jacket that is rugged, durable and easy to strip.
