The Loose Tube Fibre Optic Cable is constructed using a water blocking gel filled tube which can contain up to 24 colour coded 250um buffered fibres.
This tube is covered with aramid strength members and a flame retardant and LSZH outer sheath.

Loose Tube Fibre Optic Cable Specification:
- Long distance outside plant telephone. CATV as well as data communications
- Direct burial and installations in ducts
- The elements are usually tubes containing fibre, however fillers are also used, when needed, to preserve cable geometry
- The cables can be ordered with a central strength member, either made of dielectric FRP, or made of solid or stranded steel coated with polyethylene
- 4 -24 colour coded fibres are loosely laid in each tube that is filled with a water blocking gel
- Standard tube diameters are 2.1mm for up to 6 fibres per tube and 2.5mm for 8 -12 fibres per tube. (Other configurations available upon request)
- Wide range of jacket options available.
- Armoured Corrugated Steel Tape and Steel Wire Armour options available
- Ripcord is located under the jacket to facilitate jacket removal
- Tested according to TIA/EIA-455, IEC-60794-1-2 and EN-187000
- Cables meet or exceed Bellcore requirements for outside plant cables (GR-20-CORE) when the appropriate options are chosen
- PVC or HFFR jackets meet the IEC-60332-1 standard. On request cables meeting the IEC-60332-3 can be supplied
- Peripheral strength members may be added in order to reach the specified tensile load
