Fiber optic splice closures provide the opportunity for three types of fiber optic splicing: aerial, at grade or below grade. The advantages, in both cost and functionality, of aerial splicing are discussed in this paper. Although a sealed splice closure is an option for aerial splicing, a weather-tight breathable splice closure is the most beneficial in this type of fiber installation. A weather-tight splice closure creates the optimum environment for safely and effectively housing fiber optic splices in aerial applications. It is designed to protect from all undesirable conditions, whether they may be harsh temperatures, unwanted moisture or humidity. It is also more advantageous than a sealed splice closure when considering initial material cost, installation cost and time, routine repair and maintenance cost, ease of expansion and product training. An aerial, weather-tight splice closure is proven to be a sound and economical method for outside plant fiber deployment.
