ADSS Loose Tube Aerial Cable

GRHLGL 12-144 fibers G652D StdE 14.5-18.0 kN

  • Concentric core design
  • 24-144 fibers
  • Max span length 200-500 m
  • Self-supporting
  • Non-metallic
Three different versions of ADSS loose tube aerial non-metallic cable with black sheath

The cable is an ADSS, non-metallic cable using concentric core design. The cable is based on the GRHLDV cable but with a layer of aramid yarn as strength member covered with a second sheath enabling a robust cable design.

The cable is suitable for installation in rough climates with high ice-loads and max span length 200-500 m. There is a suitable cable (TOL 403 2002) for shorter length.

It can be installed adjacent to power lines up to 120 kV.

This cable is part of our Aerial Cable System comprising cables, installation and network materials.

The cable is a dual sheathed non-metallic cable using concentric core design and aramide yarns as strength member between the sheaths.
