Tight buffered fiber optic drop cables typically consist of a 0.9mm tight buffered tube, which is surrounded by strength members made of Aramid yarn or glass yarn. These fiber optic drop cables are further encased in an LSZH outer jacket. The design of tight buffered fiber optic drop cables allows for their utilization in both indoor and outdoor applications. Notably, the tight buffer material comes into direct contact with the fiber, ensuring enhanced protection during handling, routing, and connection procedures.
Our indoor/outdoor tight buffer fiber optic drop cables have successfully obtained UL certification, ensuring their compliance with rigorous safety standards. This certification guarantees that our tight buffer fiber optic drop cables meet requirements for fire resistance, low smoke emissions, and durability. With industry recognition and code compliance, our tight buffer fiber optic drop cables provide a reliable and safe solution for various indoor and outdoor applications.
The Indoor/outdoor fiber drop cables usually use aramid yarn or glass yarn.
Aramid yarn has excellent tensile strength and rigidity, which can effectively increase the durability and tensile capacity of fiber optic cables. When external force or tension is applied, aramid yarn plays a role in dispersing and absorbing stress, effectively preventing the fiber optic cable from being broken or damaged.
Glass yarn is also a commonly used reinforcing material with high hardness and compression resistance, which can provide an extra layer of protection to prevent some rodents (such as mice) from chewing fiber optic cables, causing signal interruption or fiber damage.
1. OFNR (Optical Fiber Nonconductive Riser) are designed for riser applications. They are used in spaces inside a building that connect floors, such as vertical zones or spaces between floors. These OFNR fiber optic cables are engineered to prevent the spread of fire from one floor to another within a building.
2. OFNP (Optical Fiber Nonconductive Plenum) are used inside buildings in plenum areas, the areas between a ceiling and the floor above it, where space is reserved for the circulation of air. At the same time, this OFNP fiber optic cable will not emit toxic smoke or steam.

It depends on the quantity of the order. Normally it takes 5-7 working days.
The indoor/outdoor fiber drop cable can withstand outdoor conditions while also meeting requirements for indoor use.
The difference between tight buffered and loose tube fiber optic cables is the construction. In tight buffered fiber optic cables, there isn't a gap between the fibre coating and cladding layers. Whereas loose tube fiber optic cables have a gap, either filled with gel or are loose in the cable.
