Since the tube does not have direct contact with the fiber, any cable material expansion or
contraction will not cause stress on the fiber. Much of the external stress placed on the tube also will not be transferred to the fiber.
The non-hygroscopic gel prevents water from entering the tube. The loose tube cables are proven the best solution for harsh environment conditions in the outdoors. The Central Loose tube designs are the economical option for low fiber counts (up to 24 fibers). The cable design offers a smaller overall dimension and ensures a more efficient use of conduit space than typical loose tube.
The central tube minimizes the amount of labor and material required to install the cable. The number of breakout kits can be reduced by 50%, saving time, money and space.
