AFL Apex Sealed Splice Closures

Sept. 22, 2021
AFL’s Apex X-2 is a sealed splice closure designed for protecting optical fiber splices in both above- or below-grade applications in a butt configuration.

AFL’s Apex X-2 is a sealed splice closure designed for protecting optical fiber splices in both above- or below-grade applications in a butt configuration. The Apex X-2 is capable of up to 432 single fusion, 864 mass fusion with standard ribbon, or 3456 (200 μm, 1728 max for 250 μm) mass fusion with “rollable ribbon” fiber types such as AFL’s SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR®). Cables are sealed by a wedge system spaced evenly around the circumference of the closure’s base.

Judge’s Comment: “This would be an attractive product in new and fiber overbuild situations. This could save time in high-density and fiber trunk and distribution splice locations.”
