FUSION SPLICE SLEEVES & HOLDERS




DESCRIPTION

Metrotek offers the industrys highest quality fusion splice sleeves and holders. Standard sleeves are constructed with a stainless steel strength member, polyolefin copolymer inner tube and a polyolefin outer tube. Cut lengths are precise and all ends are free from burrs and sharp edges.
The entire assembly is heat bonded to ensure tubes maintain perfect alignment during shipping, handling and shrinking.

Standard style sleeves are available in different lengths, colors and diameters. They are also available with a dielectric strength member. All style variations are constructed to the same standards with the same core materials.

Our Splice holders are molded with an open cell foam with a peel-and-stick adhesive backing. The foam construction accommodates various diameter sleeves as well as providing shock and vibration resistance. The adhesive backing provides excellent tack and adhesion to a variety of surfaces
including finished metal and plastic. Holders are available with two types of peel back adhesive: the standard adhesive, which is rated for indoor, controlled environment use only, and the "X" version, which is rated for extreme temperatures and is applicable for use in outdoor enclosures.

Standard Sleeve

This sleeve design represents the industrys most reliable, highest quality sleeve at an economical price. Standard lengths include 60mm and 40mm. Sleeves come standard with a clear outer tube
for viewing the color of the fiber itself.

Dielectric Sleeve

Dielectric sleeves use a non-metallic central strength member. These sleeves offer the ultimate splice protection with reduced shrink time and resistance to corrosion and electricity.

Slim Sleeve

Available in clear and colored versions, these sleeves use reduced diameter components for a smaller finished product. The smaller diameter allows users to fit more splices in existing splice trays.

Mini Sleeve

Mini sleeves are designed to fit smaller width splice trays while still accommodating both 250um and 900um fibers. In addition, its small size and smaller diameter strength member also reduce shrink time to a mere 30-50 seconds.


Micro Sleeve

The smallest in the industry, this sleeve is designed for use in splitter and coupler packages. Made for only 250um fiber, this lightweight sleeve will also shrink in just 30-45 seconds.



Ribbon Sleeve

FMS offers two ribbon sleeve styles: dual strength member and single strength member. The dual strength member design eliminates any undue stress on the ribbon, creating a perfectly flat exit for the ribbon. Available with a combination of quartz and polyetherimide strength members, three styles give users economical choices. Industry standard single strength member sleeves are available with quartz or polyetherimide strength members.
