AFL’s Loose Tube family of fiber optic cables is designed for outdoor and indoor/outdoor use as the network backbone whether it is for aerial lashed or underground applications. Depending on the environmental and performance criteria, AFL has an array of jacket options to withstand even the harshest petrochemical or cold climate exposures. Designs are available with gel-filled or gel-free, color-coded buffer tubes. Most common are the Non-Armored Loose Tube cables where the S-Z stranded tubes are contained within a single or double jacket configuration. The standard jacket material is polyethylene, which provides a rugged, durable finish, while other jacket options including Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) are available for applications requiring adherence to stricter environmental standards. The Non-Armored Loose Tube family is an all-dielectric construction meaning it contains no metallic components, therefore no bonding or grounding is required.
