For aerial fiber optic applications in electrically hazardous environments it is recommended to use ADSS (All-Dielectric Self Supporting) cable. ADSS fiber cable contains an aramid strength member eliminating the need to lash to a messenger. There are two types of hardware to attach ADSS fiber optic cable to a pole; dead ends and support brackets (see diagram below).
ADSS Support Bracket
The Support Bracket is used to support ADSS fiber optic cable on mid-span poles. The bracket is installed by simply bolting to pole.
ADSS Dead End Support
The is used for riser poles, or two dead ends can be used for mid-span poles with more than 15 degrees of bend in the cable span direction. Ram hook hardware included with each dead end.
ADSS Mid-Span Storage Bracket
DSS mid-span storage brackets eliminate the need for slack storage vaults and allow for ADSS slack to be stored aerially. The brackets also act as a safeguard, protecting the minimum bend radius of the fiber cable.
