Corning Cable Systems offers a variety of splice protection choices to meet your needs. All the types of protection pictured and described allow individual fiber access in the splice tray.
Heat-Shrink Single- or Multifiber Splice Protector
Heat-shrinkable splice protection continues to be the most popular method to protect fusion splices. The sleeve securely protects the fusion splice on either 250 or 900 µm coated fibers, while offering individual access to each fusion splice. Corning heat-shrink sleeves are compatible with most splice trays offered and are compatible with all heat-shrink ovens offered with Corning fusion splicers. Corning offers both single-fiber and multifiber heat-shrink sleeves.
Splice Pak™ Single-Fiber Splice Protector
The Splice Pak Splice Protector is a cost-effective alternative to the heat-shrink protective sleeve. It is a plastic “clam-shell” design with an adhesive applied to the inside surface. The Splice Pak Protector requires no power for assembly, thus extending the battery life of the fusion splicer. The Splice Pak Protector is offered in three types for different fiber diameters combinations.
Crimp & Go® Single-Fiber Splice Protector
The Crimp & Go Splice Protector encloses the splice within an aluminum sleeve sealed with an elastic material. Like the Splice Pak Splice Protector, the Crimp & Go Protector requires no power for assembly, thus extending the battery life of the fusion splicer.
