Corning Self Supporting Figure 8 Aerial Fiber Optic Cable, Singlemode

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.
