Fiber optic cable: General Machine Products Company Inc. (GMP) introduces both the Micro and Mini Microfiber Cable Fleeters. Microfiber Cable Fleeters are designed to provide a smooth and simple system that ensures cable protection from pedestrians or vehicles, and prevents contamination from mud, soil or dust.

Microfiber Cable Fleeters replace the manual method of “figure eighting” cable at deployment midpoints - saving time and money.

Microfiber Cable Fleeters are also designed to work in conjunction with the GMP Breeze and Air Stream Cable Blowing Machine brands.

The Micro Fleeter (P/N 89002) can accommodate 5 - 8.5 mm (0.19 - 0.33 in.) microfiber cable. Maximum cable handling: 2,000 M x 8.5 mm (6,500 ft. x 0.33 in.).

The Mini Fleeter (P/N 89298) can accommodate 5 - 11 mm (0.19 - 0.43 in.) microfiber cable.
