The traditional method of protecting your optical fiber cable usually means installing innerduct or expensive conduit and then pulling your cable.
Not any more. The Solution: Armor-Tek
With a rugged, armored design delivering 10 to 13 times the crush resistance of standard fiber optic cable, Armor-Tek interlocked armor fiber cables are ideal for campus & building backbones, data centers and industrial applications.There is also a more practical use for these well engineered fiber cables.
A cost-effective alternative to conduit or plenum innerduct.
Armor-Tek fiber cables can be installed instead of traditional fiber cables in plenum innerduct or conduit. This provides the installer with a user-friendly, one-pull solution to an expensive and labor-intensive installation process. By installing Armor-Tek fiber cables instead of plenum innerduct or conduit, savings can run from 25-50% in materials, and reduce costly installation time and labor costs as much as 60%—a significant advantage over traditional installation methods. Plus, Armor-Tek fiber cables are not governed by fill ratios because they are UL listed as cable assemblies, allowing a higher concentration of cables in an area compared to conduit. And because they can be outdoor/indoor rated, and are extremely durable, Armor-Tek is an excellent choice for campus environments, too.
Armor-Tek makes the inevitable changes easier.
Armor-Tek fiber cables can also provide outstanding flexibility for modifications, alterations and changes, (MACs) as well as relocations, pathway changes or design modifications after the cable has been pulled, something conduit cannot easily accommodate.
