A cable management strategy provides network-wide standards for how the fiber is managed. It helps ensure fiber performance, accelerate the speed and accuracy of any adds, moves, or changes.
Typical routing options today include low-end split tube or more costly slotted duct.
Although split tube provides cost savings, installation can be cumbersome, creating the potential for fiber damage during the installation process. Plus, the level of actual fiber protection is minimal.
With slotted duct, the challenges are different yet just as significant. A rigid, non-flexible design limits capabilities. Adding or removing fiber typically requires removing the slotted duct cover, a labor-intensive process that creates an additional opportunity for cable damage. And generally, costs can be high.
Introducing FlexTrax. And we know. Cable managers shouldn’t look this cool.
With more flexibility and better protection than split tube and greater ease of access than slotted duct, FlexTrax essentially replaces both. Traditional installations often combine tube and duct, with adapters required to transition between the two. FlexTrax eliminates all of this, reducing overall costs while enhancing flexibility and protection.

FlexTrax combines the flexibility of split tube with greater ease of access than slotted duct, significantly reducing the potential to pinch or bend a fiber compared to current vertical cable management methods.
Users can purchase FlexTrax as needed for the application based on estimated length required. Installation is simple and dynamic, allowing users to customize a solution to fit specific requirements.
FlexTrax utilizes an innovative design, lightweight yet durable materials, and dynamic flexibility to safely guide fiber cables from wire basket solutions to vital equipment, while securely protecting fiber from inadvertent bending or kinking.
