1 SPLICER AFL’s Fujikura 21S midrange fusion splicer uses active cladding alignment to provide high-level, low-loss splice results.
Moveable V-grooves eliminate splicing errors caused by dust and other contaminants. It has removable sheath clamps and a 4.7-in. LCD
monitor. It is compatible with AFL’s FuseConnect fusion-spliced field-installable connectors and is for FT Tx contractors. The ruggedized
chassis offers shock, dust and moisture protection and the two-camera observation system delivers accurate fiber alignment and loss
estimation calculations. The battery provides power for up to 200 splice cycles with application of the splice-protection sleeve. Software
updates are available online.
2 CONNECTORS/COUPLING Raco’s Mighty-Bite Push-EMT ½-in. and ¾-in. removable connectors and couplings use push-to-connect technology, which makes them approximately 75 percent faster to install than conventional fittings. They are constructed of
corrosion-resistant zinc with precision-cast threads and reversible zinc-serrated locknuts.
3 BARRICADE The BEARACADE fits on any door to prevent it from opening in either direction. It features reflective markings on the
outer facing portion to signal to authorities that the device has been deployed. It can withstand more than 4,000 lbs. of external force.
Lightweight, easy to store and deploy, it is designed for all doors: classrooms, offices, those without locks, many double doors, and any
other possible shelter-in-place location.
4 GROUNDING ILSCO’s irreversible RLT and GGB tin-plated grounding products for use with galvanized rod are made from heavy-duty, strong copper material. They are range-taking, UL-listed and suitable for direct burial, including concrete, in most cases. Many are
prefilled with De-Ox oxide inhibitor to keep moisture out and prevent oxidization of the connection. They include cross-grid connectors,
taps, cable-to-ground-rod, cable-to-rebar, I-beam studs, cast ground plates and terminating connectors.
5 CABLE General Cable’s MOR Polyrad XT-125 unarmored Type P cables provide maximum flexibility and flame-retardant characteristics,
and resistance to environmental conditions with advanced mechanical properties. They are TC-ER-HL-certified and meet the crush- and
impact-resistance requirements of an armored cable.
6 JOIST HANGER Mi Tek Builder Products’ THFI hanger is a face-mount hanger that attaches I-joists to wood headers using
strategically placed seat cleats that lock the bottom flange of the I-joist to the hanger, eliminating the need for joist nails. The
side flanges extend to the top chord of the I-joist, so web stiffeners are not required. Alignment tabs simplify the proper vertical
alignment. Speed prongs allow temporary placement if alignment tabs cannot be used.
7 WORK TRUCK BED ORGANIZER Highway Products Inc.’s pickup pack is a custom-built work truck bed-
organizing system for pickup trucks that provides easy access, lockup security and maximum storage space for
tools and cargo. The pack includes two full-length, lockable, low side boxes, a flat or dome center hatch (which
locks the tailgate when closed), a headache rack, and a removable ladder rack. It comes with a 4,000-lb.-capacity
roller-coaster cargo tray.
