Metallic aerial self-supporting (MASS)

Applied for aerial installation on distribution and high voltage power lines, as well as railway catenary.

Applied inside buildings, in ducts, trays, blocks, tunnels, and collecting channels, on bridges, with a small risk of rodents’ attacks or in protecting tubes.

Also applied for direct-buried installation in protecting tubes.

Metallic aerial self-supporting (MASS)

  • 3
    Stranded wires (steel zinc-coated wires or ACS* wires)
  • 2
    Stainless steel tube filled with water-swellable gel
  • 1
    Optic fiber

Advantages

Increased tensile strength – up to 125 kN

ASC wire makes the MASS cable exceedingly rustproof

High strength, small size

Large spans between towers, installation over rivers and ravines
