“If you’re seeking fibre optic splicing experts to step in and complete the job, be rest assured that Dizza Communications is your one stop shop for a fast, efficient and effective operation.”
Our professional grade fibre splicing services cover new installations, essential repairs and upgrades, as well as general maintenance as and when required.
Using our experience and state of the art fibre splicing equipment we are able to offer several options, all of which offer effective solutions. In addition to utilising optical fibre connectors we can splice two optical fibres together using either fusion or mechanical splices.
Cable hauling thousands of metres per day requires a series of techniques that work in unison together to ensure the work is completed smoothly. At Dizza Communications we:
- Avoid jams by calculating the jam ratio. When three cables lie side by side jamming can occur as cables are hauled around bends or when they twist. Each cable has a different manufacturing tolerance so this should be factored in when computing the jam ratio.
- Ensure there is sufficient clearance between cable and conduit. We keep clearance to a quarter of an inch minimum and a maximum of one inch for large cable installations, or those with multiple bends.
- Lubricate. Using adequate lubrication to help reduce friction enables a more efficient cable pull. By assessing the material coating the cable being pulled first, we can adapt our lubricant accordingly.
- End Seal Protection. Once installation is complete we make sure the end seals are fully intact and have not been damaged, allowing water to enter. If necessary plastic or rubber tape is applied to ensure the cable is protected should it be exposed to moisture. We always ensure this process is completed quickly between the pulling operation and the splicing and termination.
- Tension. It is important to maintain adequate tension of the messenger in aerial cable installations to make sure there are no bends. We only release the tension once the cable is fully secured to poles at both ends.
- Rollers. By using an adequate number of rollers it is possible to prevent cables from dragging in the cable tray, which may result in causing excessive tension. In addition we aim to avoid any sharp bends in the cable by using multiple sharp rollers at more gentle bends.
