MiniGlide™ Microtubing

7 to 16mm primary (loose)tubes and assemblies used to connect the distribution node to the intermediate splice

Suitable for: backbone, metro, distribution, campus networks and last mile access

MiniGlide is the ideal solution for housing backbone and feeder cables where initial fibre count is high and compliments MicroGlide microtubing which is generally used to connect the final section to the end user.

Designed for use with mini-cable (up to 144 fibre) it offers high fibre capacity and allows fibre to be blown in as and when required, providing vast expansion scalability with minimal initial investment.

Based on primary tubes of 7 to 16mm, MiniGlide comes in configurations of 1 to 7 tubes as standard. Many options are available to suit a variety of locations and environmental parameters within the network:

Outdoor Installations:  Direct Bury, Direct Install, Metallic and Non-Metallic
Indoor Installations: Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH)
Special Assemblies: Aerial, Anti-rodent, Anti-termite, Armoured and Chemical Resistant more info
Product Customisation:  Your choice of tube colours and stripes, sheath colours and print line
