Preformed Line Products (PLP) has developed the FIBERLIGN In-Span Storage System as a new way to speed up and simplify the storage of aerial fiber optic slack cable.

One of the unique design elements of the FIS is the Cable Capture Tabs. These Cable Capture Tabs allow the installer to clip the loop of cable into place rather then using the traditional method of securing the cable using multiple cable ties. First the installer clips the cable into the tabs, and then pulls the storage bracket to the back of the loop. Once the storage bracket is in its final position, the cable is secure and the installer can work hands-free installing the few cable ties needed to complete the job. The installation process is streamlined, and saves money. Furthermore, FIS can be hung from either an All Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) or lashed messenger cable.

“PLP has a long history of providing innovative solutions” noted Dustin Whapham, PLP Product Support Technician. “With the FIS, we wanted to improve upon the storage brackets already on the market and we designed the unique Cable Capture Tabs feature with the installer in mind”.

•    12” (305mm) diameter storage bracket accommodates cable diameters up to 0.60” (15mm).
•    16” (406mm) diameter storage bracket accepts cable diameters up to 0.80” (20mm).
•    Multiple cables can be stacked vertically, providing large storage capability in a small profile.
•    Installers can choose from a full range of accessories, including hanger brackets, cable ties, cable guides, and abrasion protectors.
