FIBERLIGN® U-Bolt Dead-End


The FIBERLIGN U-Bolt Dead-End is designed to terminate Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) while minimizing any compression stresses that may be transferred to the core or optical elements within.  The Retaining Rods act with the Wedge and Housing to distribute the axial and compressive loading over a large area of the OPGW.  Standard units have lefthand lay rods.


  • The U-Bolt provides up to 18 inches of take-up to allow for tension adjustment and extra clearance distance.
  • The retaining rods and wedges may be reused once for retensioning after initial installation.
  • Accessories may be included in the same container with the Dead-end by adding the appropriate suffix code.
