Manufacturer and distributor will showcase products that simplify everyday jobs in the field and keep workers safe.

Fayetteville, N.C. —U-TECK, a developer of specialized products for the telecommunications, utility, municipal and transportation industries, will highlight telecom safety solutions at OSP Expo 2012. Held Nov. 14-15 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, the OSP Expo is the industry-leading event dedicated to telecom network education and delivering solutions, products, and technologies for today’s rapid wireless and wireline network evolution.

At booth 225, U-TECK will showcase four different categories of solutions that simplify everyday jobs in the field and keep workers safe:

Cable Management: Whether OSP professionals are looking to prevent gas leaks or more easily store cable reels, U-TECK offers several innovative cable management solutions. At OSP Expo, U-TECK will exhibit products including the Reel Deal Cable Caddy and Buried Closure Protective Housing.

FTTH Solutions: U-TECK’s Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) solutions range from fire retardant backboards for telecom and datacom equipment installations, to the Magic Wrap emergency repair kit. Due to the growth of broadband technology, safety in handling, splicing, and maintaining fiber optics is essential.

Manhole Safety: The greatest hazards in manholes are not visible to the human eye—namely toxic gases and fumes. U-TECK provides equipment such as gas detectors and blowers to help workers practice the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s “test, purge and ventilate” routine prior to entering a confined space.

Safety Gear: U-TECK supplies a variety of useful, high-quality safety solutions that are vital to any worker’s toolbox. At OSP Expo, U-TECK will have products such as protective eyewear, safety vests, gloves and hardhats on display.

Russ Mason III, U-TECK’s vice president of sales, said, “Although U-TECK’s customers span several industries, we have always been very in-tune with the needs of the telecommunication field, as the majority of our first clients came from this market. We are looking forward to participating in OSP Expo 2012—the show’s 20th anniversary—and showcasing a wide range of both new and well-established solutions.”
