Fire Resistant Tight Buffered Distribution Fiber Optic cables


Fire Resistant Tight Buffered Distribution Fiber Optic cables


This Fire Resistant Tight Buffered Distribution Fiber Optic cables are used for interconnection of distribution boxes and end devices, where continued functionality is required during a fire situation. The cables are very suitable for various indoor and outdoor applications, including routing between buildings within ducts and inside building up to riser shafts.


Basic design to Telcordia GR409-CORE / TIA/EIA 568B.3 / ICEA-S-83-596
