ULTRAsleeve Specifications

Rainbow Bar

ULTRAsleeve is a high performance, low cost, easy to install fiber optic fusion splice protection cover that requires no heat shrink, curing, crimping or gluing.

One fully mechanical fusion splice protector can accept any combination of buffer sizes ranging from 250-900µ single-fiber and UP TO 4 FIBER RIBBON CABLE.

The ULTRAsleeve is manufactured by utilizing an Acrylic Foam closed cell tape to seal against chemical and environmental conditions for long term applications. The plastic housing comprises of two halves that fold along a hinge (similar to a door hinge) and is delivered in an open position, ready for fused fiber(s) to be placed into the sleeve. Once the fibers are in the protection cover, the sleeve closes and locks, this process prevents the ULTRAsleeve from being used again. The locks on the sleeve is what keeps the protection cover from opening, and compresses the Acrylic Foam to provide a hermetic seal.
