Cables for Direct Buried Installation

The range of cables for direct buried installation includes all of our four basic designs: concentric core, slotted core ribbon, DryTech and ribbon in loose tubes. The cables are reinforced with corrugated steel tape, steel wire, or foamed thermo­plastic elastomer, providing excellent mechanical protection. The range of cables includes both metallic and dielectric cables and covers fiber counts up to several hundred fibers.

 

DryTech – Cables marked with DryTech are a series of cables where the typical water blocking in-between 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
