Corning FREEDM One interlocking armored cables are flame-retardant, indoor/outdoor cables designed for interbuilding and intrabuilding backbone installations that eliminate the need for a transition splice when entering the building. Encased in a spira lly wrapped, aluminum interlocking armor for ruggedness and superior crush resistance, these cables are ideal for industrial and heavy traffic areas and installations requiring extra protection for optical cables. These cables are protected against wat er penetration by innovative waterblocking technology, making them ideal for OSP applications. The flexible, interlocking armored design offers up to seven times the crush protection compared to unarmored cables (as characterized to ICEA-696) and allow s easy one-step installation, thereby reducing overall installation costs. The UV-resistant, flame-retardant jacket is rugged, durable and easy to strip.

Note: This cable is available in 12 different jacket colors - blue, orange, green, brown, slate, white, red, black, yellow, violet, rose and aqua. The colored jacket allows for easy visual identification of the cables while still providing all of the required environmental protection of an indoor/outdoor cable jacket. Black is the standard jacket color using the part numbers shown here. Contact Customer Care at 1-800-743-2675 to order other color options.
