The FDN 16 Port Integrated Routing (IR) C Length closure with basket is supplied with a Polypropylene base. The base configuration of 15 round ports and 1 oval port covers a cable diameter range of 4.8 – 29.0mm when using Cablelok mechanical seals and 6.0 – 35.0mm when using heatshrink. The molded supports on the base allow the cover to be removed from the closure whilst it is still in-situ. Bosses molded in to the closure base enable fixing of external cable management attachments. The mounting system is manufactured from Grade 304 stainless steel and the backplane is an aluminum extrusion which can accommodate up to 36 IR SE or 72 IR SC/SC-B trays or a combination of SE, SC and SC-B trays. The position of the mounting system allows easy access for the routing of the fiber on to the trays and the basket provides storage space for the storage of fiber loops. The trays and fiber optic routing module are white which makes it easy to see the color of the fiber elements as they are routed through the positive fiber management system. Fiber slot retaining blocks guide fiber elements in to the IR system; the foam pad on the retainer is partially cut through to accommodate a range of fiber counts. All IR system cover plates are colored blue identifying them as removable parts allowing access to the fiber, the fiber slot retaining block and tray retaining clips are colored red to aid in identification if they are dropped.
