Requirements for Fiber Optic Splice Closure II


Requirements for Fiber Optic Splice Closure II.

Termination System

The cable termination system should be designed to provide sufficient mechanical strength between the cable and closure to ensure its performance throughout the lifetime. The materials used for fiber optic splice closures shall also be capable of minimizing or negating the effects of relative motion between cable components, because the materials used in optical fibers are easy to thermal expansion and contraction.

Bonding & Grounding

Proper bonding and grounding of conductive elements of the optical network shall be provided for the safe deployment and operation of the network.


Aerial fiber optic closures may need to hang on the messenger wire depending on the network configuration. Or they may be attached to the pole. In both cases, extra hardware is required along with the closures. The hardware to attach and secure should be able to bear wear and tear and also environmental stresses.

Greentelftth supplies fiber optic splice closures with different ports types, fittings and fiber optic core numbers. These splice closures are made of excellent engineering plastics and suitable for protecting optical fiber splices in straight through and branching applications, and can be used in aerial, duct and direct buried fiber optic cable projects. Fiber splice tray, fiber distribution box and fiber optic enclosure are also offered in conjunction with the splice closures, promoting a safe and well-managed environment for fiber optic splices.
