Cleerline SSF™ fiber, micro distribution Aluminum Interlocking Armored cable consists of either a Riser or Plenum overall jacket with 2-72 fibers and water blocking kevlar yarns.
Applications include: installations requiring high crush resistance.
Cleerline SSF™ Micro Distribution Aluminum Interlock Armored fiber cable is designed for easy installation in rugged environments. A spirally-wrapped aluminum strip protects the cable’s core, creating a cable that is highly crush resistant. This product eliminates the need for inner duct or conduit.

Interlocking Armor Removal
In order to terminate AIA cable, the interlock armored layer must be removed. This video demonstrates those steps. For more information on terminating Cleerline SSF™ fiber, please visit our Resources section by clicking the button below.
Cleerline SSF™ is designed to be more durable than standard fiber optic cable. As a result, your cleaver may require a Cleaver Height Adjustment in order to operate correctly with SSF™ fiber. Please visit our Resources page for details cleaver adjustment.
