Rodents present a significant threat to a network, particularly in locations like manufacturing plants, mines, defence environments, warehouses, and factories where rats and other pests can move freely. Failure to install a rodent-proof solution can mean loss of service and costly rework to replace damaged cables.
Our popular fibre enclosure range now includes a rodent proof option designed for these tough environments; stopping rodents in their tracks before they can gain access to exposed fibres.
How does it work?
The 19inch rack mount fixed enclosure features knockouts on the rear to allow access where you need it, without leaving any potential entry points exposed. The compact design is perfect for small cabinets or wherever space is limited. The modular coupler panel suits ST, SC, LC, FC, MTRJ connectors, providing a flexible solution.
