The Tykoflex T240 Joint Closure is part of a modular system of lockable closures made of acidproof stainless steel. The main benefits of the system are superior flexibility, easy handling, and tightness with regard to overpressure and vacuum. The closures are designed for use in demanding environments. With a desiccator, the closure remains free of humidity even under extreme conditions.
The closure is suitable for use above ground, attached to high voltage towers, poles, walls or other support structures. The Tykoflex closure can be tailored to almost any required configuration. It is designed to provide watertight and pressure-tight environmental protection for optical fibres and optical fibre splices for all cable designs. The closure is therefore suitable for ground installations in manholes, tunnel systems and sewage lines.
Tightness with regard to overpressure and vacuum. Closures installed in manholes or that are buried can be exposed to flooding and remain underwater for months. Tykoflex closures are therefore tested and certified for IP68 (2 bar/24 h) IP69 and IP69K.
