Corning FREEDM loose tube gel-free riser cables are flame-retardant, indoor/outdoor, riser-rated cables designed for interbuilding and intrabuilding backbones in aerial, duct and riser applications. These cables are protected against water penetration by innovative waterblocking materials that swell to absorb water. Waterblocking without the use of messy gels provides more efficient and craft-friendly cable preparation. It also makes cable access easier and simplifies the use of buffer tube fan-out kits.
The buffer tubes and fibers in each tube are color coded for quick, easy identification. The SZ-stranded, loose tube design isolates fibers from installation and environmental rigors and allows for easy mid-span access. The cable design is also National Electrical Code (NEC) listed (OFNR and FT-4). The all-dielectric cable construction requires no grounding or bonding, and 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 in door/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.
