The mini-dead ends are designed for fast and easy installation of your ADSS Mini-Span® cable. The mini-dead end is ideal in crowded distribution environments where its shorter length allows for efficient installation. This unique low-cost product is used in typical spans with 1-2% installation sag.
AFL offers trunnions (single and double cable options) with various mounting capabilities: bolted, banded or standoff. Trunnions reduce installation costs by functioning as a pull-through during installation (maximum line angle for stringing is 15° total, 7.5° per side, number of structures not to exceed 30). Block or pulley is not needed, provided these conditions are met.

AFL downlead clamps are used to guide optical ground wire (OPGW) from the top of the structure to the splice box. AFL’s downlead clamps install easily, provide proper spacing and hold strength without damage to the cable. From poles to towers, AFL offers a full line of OPGW downlead clamps to meet the needs of any application.
Fiber Storage Units (FSU) are used to conveniently store an extra length of cable along the ADSS cable run for later use.
This is a formed wire suspension for ADSS cables.
Spiral vibration dampers have a helically-formed damping section sized for interplay of damper and cable to provide the action/reaction motion that opposed the natural vibration wave.
AFL’s ADSS suspension unit is used to provide long term performance for spans up to 1200 feet.

AFL downlead clamps are used to guide ADSS wire from the top of the structure to the splice box.
Mini Brackets are used for short and medium spans of ADSS fiber optic cable as well as Aerial Drop cables. Formed Wire Tangent Supports (FTS) are used with ADSS Mini-Span® 323 and Mini-Span® 383 for short span applications.
Temporary grips are used in stringing the ADSS during sagging and where it is necessary to make short-term catch on the ADSS.
AFL offers wedge dead ends that ease and speed ADSS cable installation. The ADSS Wedge Dead End is ideal in crowded distribution environments because its shorter length allows for safer and efficient installation.
AFL’s SB01 splice enclosure box provides protection from all types of elements. From weather to bullets, the iron and steel construction requires no additional protective covering. Furnished with four plugged cable ports (2 aluminum and 2 plastic) for either All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) or Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) cables, the splice enclosure can be pre-mounted to a structure before completion of the splicing phase.
