Cables for Duct Installation

The range of cables for duct installation includes all of our four basic designs: concentric core, slotted core ribbon, DryTech and ribbon in loose tubes.

 

The duct installation cables include both metallic and dielectric cables with fibre counts of up to several hundred fibres.The fibre can be of various types and the different types of fiber can be mixed in the same cable. The duct cables can be supplied with aluminum foil as a moisture barrier. Aramid or glass yarn can be added for extra axial pulling strength. Glass yarn or polyamide can be used as protection against rodents.

 

DryTech – Cables marked with DryTech are a series of cables where the typical water blocking inbetween tubes (jelly or water swelling tape or powder) is replaced with a solid thermoplastic foamed elastomer. This truly unique technology has several benefits over traditional jelly filled cables.

 

  • Increased crush resistance, typically up to 65% better
  • Faster and lower cost to install, about 2x faster to prepare cable for splicing
  • Environmental friendly, minimum amount of solvents needed for cable preparation and hassle-free cable re-cycling
