Optical Fiber Cables - ADSS Single & Double Layer

PTCL Cables offer ADSS (All Dielectric Self-Supporting) Aerial Optical Fiber Cables. ADSS Optical Fiber Cables are solution for High Performance Aerial Environments including Power Transmission and Distribution Networks. ADSS Cable is suspended from poles or towers in telecommunication and power outside plant applications.


  • Aerial Installation
  • Lightening Protection
  • Junction Communication System, Subscriber Network System


  • Loose Tube filled with Gel
  • Stranded around Central Strength Member
  • Dry Core
  • Core Wrap
  • Water Blocking Material
  • Polyethylene Inner Sheath
  • Peripheral Strength Member (Layer of Aramid Yarn)
