Milwaukee-based HellermannTyton has launched a new line of fibre distribution enclosures aimed at FTTx applications. Developed for installers to connect cables from the street level fibre backbone to individual residences and businesses, the range also includes options for use throughout the building including direct connections to the desk or access point.

The outdoor Fibre Façade Enclosure accommodates up to eight fibre drops to the home, apartment or small office building. The compact Customer Connection Point transitions fibre drop cables into the building’s network, accommodating both splice and patch for single-subscriber connections. The company says the UV-protected and sealed outdoor systems provide an easy and reliable solution to connect outdoor fibre cabling and transition them into a building.

The Fibre Distribution Enclosure serves as both a Building Entry Point or as a Floor Distributor. Its hinged splice tray supports up to 18 fusion splices to splice and route fibres within the building. Additionally, a splice and patch version accommodates options to deploy with pluggable connectivity.

“Deploying fibres up to and throughout the building is an evolutionary step in satisfying increasing consumer demand for data,” said HellermannTyton product manager David Rifkin. “HellermannTyton assists in this transition by providing compact and reliable enclosure solutions that are easy to install and manage.”

HellermannTyton’s range of enclosures also feature compliance with UL 94 V-0 flame resistance, IP68 dust and water ingress and IK08 impact-resistance, as well as sealed cable entry and tamper-proof covers.
