Central Loose Tube Armoured External Cable MDPE

Overview

These cables are constructed with a central tube filled with water blocking jelly, water blocking tape over the tube giving it excellent water and moisture resistance. A corrugated steel armouring and two steel wires strengthening within the outer MDPE sheath give this cable excellent tensile strength, mechanical and environmental protection.   They have a small diameter, is light weight and is installation friendly since they come in a single tube with loose tube fibre count up to 12 fibres. Their compact construction protect the loose tube from shrinking, the Armour makes it crush, rodent and impact resistant, the water proofing tape and jelly protects it from water and moisture, the outer MDPE sheath gives it ultraviolet protection. This cable is suitable for external distribution through ducts, conductor aerial pipe lines
