MULTI-TUBE FIGURE-8 AERIAL CABLE (2F-144F)

Over View

Rhino Multi – Tube Figure – 8 Aerial Cable (2F – 144F) fibers are placed inside gel-filled buffer tubes. The core is constructed by stranding the buffer tubes around a central member and then wrapped with flexible strength members, a water-blocking tape and then enclosed with a black sheath and an integrated steel messenger. A rip cord is included under the sheath for ease of entry.
