Product Description

Flex-Span ADSS expands on AFL's single jacket ADSS portfolio. Flex-Span designs are optimized for a broader combination of fiber counts and span lengths, providing ADSS system designers more flexibility in their product selection. As its name indicates, there is no support or messenger wire required, so installation is achieved in a single pass.

Flex-Span ADSS includes fiber counts up to 144 optical fibers and any type or combination of single-mode or multimode fibers within the cable. Pole-to-pole span lengths range from 50 ft. to over 1,000 ft.
