Armored Direct Burial

Armored Direct Burial

Cleerline SSF™ Armored Corrugated Steel (ACS) Distribution direct burial fiber optic cable consists of a PE overall jacket with 2, 6, 12, or 24 fibers and water blocking Kevlar yarns. The core is protected by a corrugated armored steel tube that offers easy installation and high crush resistance.

Applications include direct burial and installations requiring superior bend performance and crush resistance. The cable is protected by a polyethylene, UV-resistant jacket, allowing direct burial of the cable.


  • High crush resistance
  • Cable built to withstand rugged environments
  • Bend performance beyond EIA SP2840A
  • UV resistant, rodent resistant
