The Fiber In-Line Splice Closure (FIC) Series is made of a rugged, environmentally-resistant, molded plastic and grommet seal, which makes these optical fiber splice closures ideal for Outside Plant (OSP) below-grade and aerial applications. The FIC Series is available in a single-bolt/latch, clamshell design, as well as a multi-bolt, two-piece design. The single-bolt/latch closure is specially designed for aerial applications with provisions for strandmounting and hanger hardware included. This closure, when opened, allows the splice trays to fold open at a 90° angle, thus creating a convenient position for splicing. The multi-bolt, two piece closure is best suited for below-grade applications, with a circumferential bolt pattern to ensure a secure, water-proof seal and a flash valve for seal verification. The FIC Series offers two sizes of closures to accommodate splice capacities up to 192 Loose Buffer Tube (LBT) and 432 Ribbon fiber counts. A variety of port grommets are included to support in-line, branch and multiple drop cable configurations. An SC/APC adapter panel option, for use of preconnectorized drops, is available for the Type B and Type C closure models. Additional grommets, hanger hardware and splice trays are available as Closure Accessory Kits. The FIC Series is Telcordia Technologies GR-771-CORE compliant and RUS Listed.
