Tight Buffered LSOH Pre-Terms: Suitable for internal horizontal and backbone cabling. The 900um tight buffered presentation also lends itself to installation within an Optical Distribution Frame (ODF), patch panel or enclosure. Available in CPR EuroClasses* Eca, Cca and B2ca.
Loose Tube LSOH Pre-Terms: Loose Tube Gel Filled 250um Pre-Term fibre assemblies with a 900um protective clear tube. Typical application for loose tube cables is in external building to building applications with the water blocking gel making it ideal for ducting where water ingress may occur.

* CPR (Constructors Product Regulation) has standardised cable classes (Euro Classes) across Europe and rates how quickly cable reacts to fire spread, heat release, smoke production, acid gas production and flaming droplets. BS6701 states that as a minimum CPR class Cca cabling should be used in permanent link applications due to high flame resistance.
