InAir ADSS

InAir ADSS MT FRP Defender part no.
0010
Multi-Tube (MT) FiberGlass Rods (FRP) Defender

This design combines enhanced optical reliability with the highest degree of rodent resistance available in an all-dielectric cable. It also can be used as an all-dielectric direct buried cable solution.

Ripcord

Anti-rodent additive in the outer jacket for first-line protection

Designed for use in aerial applications of 138 kV or less where damage from squirrels/rodents is apparent

Superior protection from mechanical damage - FRP rods
provide strength and second-line protection

Completely protected from water ingress
