Cabling specialist, Nexans, today announced the launch of its new LANmark-OF Tight Buffer Universal Cable.

The offering harmonises the company's Tight Buffer Indoor and Universal cable portfolio with its Tight Buffer Universal cable for indoor and outdoor use. Nexans developed the cable using a new type of glass yarn that combines rodent protection with "installer friendliness" and "avoids skin-irritation when compared to similar products of other vendors".

"The LANmark-OF Tight Buffer Universal cable is a fibre cable that can be used indoors and outdoors in a duct," said Tarek Helmy, regional director, Gulf, Middle East, South and East Africa, Nexans.

"It complies with indoor fire requirements and can be installed indoors, both vertically and horizontally. It can also be used for outdoors installation in a duct, as the watertight glass yarns make the cables fully waterproof and rodent retardant.

"Our existing Tight Buffer cables portfolio have glass yarns for rodent protection and water tightness, but unfortunately these glass yarns could cause skin irritation during installation. Hence, for our latest LANmark-OF Tight Buffer Universal cables, we have developed a new type of glass yarn that combines rodent protection with installer friendliness and avoids skin-irritation. With these features the glass yarns can better be used indoors."
