This item protects installed optical fibre cords from damage during the cut-out operation. The Fibre Spreader/Protector should be used whenever the side of a duct system, housing optical fibre cords, is being prepared for a new drop-off installation.

This Cut Out Jig is used to quickly and neatly prepare the side of a new duct length, to make a cut out for quickly installing a drop-off or a break-out guide (ie an outlet trumpet). The Jig is centrally located about a centre mark on the top of the duct edge. it is clamped in position, and two quick cuts are made using a hand saw (Part No: 100 x 060 – available separately) to the full depth of the marked slots for the item to be installed. Next a Stanley knife is run ( two or three times) along the bottom of the Jig’s straight edge, between saw cuts, to make a straight longitudinal cut in the ducts side. The Cut Out Jig is unclamped and removed from the duct, and the prepared piece of duct is removed using light finger pressure. The Stanley knife is used to clean the ducts edges, and the nominated item is quickly and simply fitted into the prepared cut-out.
