FieldShield Plenum 10/6mm Microduct

Description

FieldShield Plenum 10/6 mm Microduct is a durable, polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) crush resistant microduct suitable for protecting fiber in any indoor application. Easily mated with an airtight and waterproof coupler, FieldShield Plenum Microducts integrate with direct bury and aerial microducts creating a single and continuous pathway from outside plant to inside plant environments.

Features and Benefits

Integrity

  • Compliant to Telcordia GR-3155
  • UL-2024 listed

Protection

  • Plenum rated material self-extinguishes flame and does not reignite
  • High tension and crush resistance allows microduct to be pushed through existing conduit and around tight corners without degrading microduct

Access

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Small 10 mm footprint makes FieldShield ideal for all types of indoor implementations maximizing space in ladder racks, raised floors and air handling elevator shafts
  • Smooth core enables fiber to be pushed or pulled with minimal resistance
  • White color for easy identification

Investment

  • Extends the capacity of existing conduit previously considered exhausted
