Horizontal type

Horizontal type fiber closure is like a flat or cylindrical case. It usually contains one or more fiber splice tray to provide space and protection for fiber optic splices. Fiber splice trays used in different fiber optic splice closures may have different designs and fiber counts. The following picture shows a 96-fiber horizontal fiber optic splice closure. It has two input ports and two output ports providing space for 96 fiber splices. There are four standard 24-fiber splice trays stacked together inside the fiber optic splice closure.
Fiber Optic Closure
Horizontal fiber optic splice closures are designed to be waterproof and dust proof. They have good adaptability and compression resistance, for they are commonly made of high tensile construction plastic. Horizontal optical closures are used more often than vertical fiber optic closures.
