Self-supporting fibre optic cable

AirFlow Fibre is a universal (for outdoor and indoor use), round and self-supporting cable for FTTx systems, strengthened by aramid fibres (supporting element in aerial installations). The light construction with small diameter (3.5 mm), high flexibility and high tensile strength enable installers to build suspended lines with spans up to 80 m.

The cable has been specially designed to ensure very good protection of fibres and ease of installation. The G.657A2 fibres allow for very small bending diameter (even 7.5 mm). The cable is intended for aerial installations and for use in primary and secondary telecommunication ducts. It can be deployed using pneumatic or mechanical methods.

OPT 4/12f Overhead Drop Cable Stripper

Add to cart

The OPT stripper has a profiled cassette that slits the sheath on a 4/12f overhead drop cable

  • Each cassette contains a single rotatory blade which is located on the handle mechanism, as a pair the blades are diametrically opposite each other
  • These blades cut through the outer sheath to expose the cable element, ideally using the yellow stripe(s) as a guide to prevent the blades coming into contact with the strength members
  • A profiled roller is located either side of the rotary blade to ensure the internal cable element is not damaged during the stripping operation
  • The handle locking mechanism ensures the stripper remains closed during the sheath stripping operation
  • A wrist strap and user instructions are supplied with each stripper
  • Overall dimensions : 210(W) x 67(H) x 36mm(D) (including cassette)

Fibre Locking Mechanism (FLM)

Add to cart

The Fibre Locking Mechanism (FLM) is a locking mechanism essential for 'loose' jacketed element(s) in an overhead cable. The FLM provides an effective solution that isolates the termination of the fibres, either spliced or connectorised, in the fibre enclosure from the 'in span' environmental loading (ice and winding)


  • Can be attached to a wooden pole with 4x No.8 x 1" countersunk pozi wood screws (820139)
  • Designed to form a 'bridge' over other cables fitted to a pole

OptiSheath Multipurpose Enclosures

Add to cart

Corning's Multipurpose Enclosure (MPE) is a multi-functional in-line closure designed for use in outside plant fibre access networks. This new generation of Corning pre-connectorised closure provides sealed environmental protection and fast, easy incremental connection of subscriber drop cables while increasing deployment speed in just the same way as can be achieved using a Corning multiport terminal. However, the MPE sealed terminal has the added advantage of serving as a splice point where higher fibre count distribution cables can be branched to lower fibre count cables or to the stubbed cables of multiport terminals

  • OptiTip MT connector compatible with FlexNAP system, MDU terminals, FDT stubbed terminals
  • OptiTap cable assembly connector ports for customer drop terminations
  • IP68 rated faster deployment either pole or underground application
  • Available in 8, 12, or 16 drop port styles
  • Suitable for pole mount, wall mount, chamber mount or direct bury installation
  • Can be fitted with mini PLC splitter for PON applications
  • Supplied with 6x 7-10mm sealed grommet inputs, splice trays and accessories
