MULTI-TUBE FIGURE-8 AERIAL CABLE (2F-144F)

Over View

The optical fibers are placed inside gel-filled buffer tubes. The core is constructed by stranding the buffer tubes around a central member. The core is wrapped with flexible strength members, a water-blocking tape and then encased with a black sheath and an integrated steel messenger. A rip cord is included under the sheath for ease of entry.
