Single-Jacket vs. Double-Jacket ADSS Fiber Optic Cable

March 23, 2020 Carson Joye

The white paper explores the advantages and typical applications of single-jacket and double-jacket ADSS cable designs.

Traditional double-jacket ADSS cable can be engineered to longer span and heavier environmental loading (e.g. ice and wind) applications. In shorter span environments like distribution lines, a single-jacket design could be the most efficient and effective design.

All fiber networks are unique. Contact an AFL Applications Engineer to determine the best ADSS design for your specific network.
