Flexible Splice Enclosure for Fiber Optic Cable

Overview

The STRAN flexible splice enclosure is an easy and effective solution for protecting fiber optic splices in field deployable applications. Its dimensions allow as many as 8 splices, and the design and construction restore a cable’s full tensile strength while allowing it to be flexible enough to coil around a field deployable reel. The stainless steel construction provides complete protection to splices from vibration, shock, and other harsh environmental conditions that might affect performance and functionality.

Applications
