Benefits with Joint Closure T240

When it comes to Joint Closure T240, using steel instead of plastic offers several benefits.

Here are eight advantages of using Joint Closure T240 made of stainless steel:

  1. Enhanced Durability: Steel is a highly durable material that provides excellent resistance to environmental factors such as temperature variations, moisture, UV radiation, and chemical exposure. It can withstand harsh conditions and is less prone to cracking, deformation, or degradation over time compared to plastic.
  2. Mechanical Strength: Steel offers superior mechanical strength and rigidity compared to plastic. It provides robust protection to fiber optic cables, ensuring they remain intact and safe within the closure. This strength is especially important in areas where the closure may be subject to external stresses, such as high-pressure environments or heavy loads.
  3. Enhanced Security: Joint Closure T240 provide increased security against unauthorized access or tampering. Due to its strong and rigid nature, steel is more difficult to break or manipulate, making it an ideal choice for applications where security is a concern.
  4. Improved Fire Resistance: Steel is inherently fire-resistant and does not contribute to the spread of flames. In critical installations, such as data centers or communication hubs, using steel closures adds an extra layer of fire protection, reducing the risk of damage to the fiber optic cables and ensuring their continuity during fire emergencies.

  5. Longer Lifespan: The durability and resilience of steel result in a longer lifespan compared to plastic. Joint Closure T240 can withstand years of service without significant deterioration, reducing the need for frequent replacements or maintenance, which are time-consuming and costly. Tykoflex Telecombox T240 has been used in Sweden for over 35 years.
  6. Environmental Sustainability: Steel is a highly recyclable material, making it a more environmentally friendly choice compared to plastic. It can be reused or repurposed at the end of its life cycle, reducing waste and promoting sustainable practices.
  7. Resistance to Pests and Rodents: Joint Closure T240 offer resistance to pests, rodents, and insects. They provide a more robust barrier that discourages unwanted intrusion or damage by animals, which can be a concern in certain outdoor or industrial environments.
  8. Flexibility and Adaptability: Joint Closure T240 are available in various shapes, sizes, and configurations, providing flexibility to accommodate different cable arrangements and installation requirements. This adaptability ensures compatibility with diverse fiber optic networks and facilitates easier integration into existing infrastructure.
