GRP Armoured Cable

Fibre Optic Cabling

Product summary
The BTNS GRP armoured cables consist of one tube containing up to 24 optical fibres or multiple tubes each containing up to 12 optical fibres. GRP crush resistant rods encircle the loose tube, providing significant extra strength and resistance to rodents, then a PE sheath is applied.

Wherever extra high strength is required. Ideal for direct burial in the ground and other external applications where higher protection is required. Also applicable for installation in ducts and for other external requirements, e.g. structured wiring systems in networks for telecoms, cable TV and broadcasting. Its nonmetallic core permits installation in high voltage environments. Suitable for short span aerial applications.
