Its important to protect the glass fibre strands inside a cable sheath so for outdoor installations, loose tube technology is certainly the way to go. Optical cables can naturally be impacted on from the outdoor elements, be that temperature, wind, moisture, vermin and lightning. With Loose tube construction, a tough outer sheath gives robust protection
Loose tube designs are proven to be robust in outdoor / underground / submerged conditions. With a gel-filled construction this type of cable protects the fibre within it from moisture and temperature.
Without loose tube cabling, your external optical fibre infrastructure won’t last for long. At Elam, we have years of experience in installing outdoor fibre that stands the test of time, providing a level of ruggedness that our customers have come to rely on.
