Outside plant products and solutions serve as the backbone of network infrastructure. The importance of having access to high-quality and cost-competitive outside plant products and solutions has never been more important.
And that’s why Van Meter has invested in outside plant product stock so you don’t have to. We are focused on providing comprehensive and timely outside plant products and solutions; solutions that support both the network infrastructure demands of today as well as those of tomorrow.
Heavy-duty handholes are available in a variety of sizes and materials (fiberglass, precast concrete, polymer concrete, etc.) to provide convenient access to termination and branch points on telecommunications, DOT, water, utility, and other applications. Depending on your needs, we can provide handholes that are nontoxic, watertight, durable, safe for the environment, and resistant to buoyancy, sunlight, and fertilizer.
Innerduct is available in a wide variety of materials and sizes to accommodate all types of cable.
Installed inside existing larger-diameter ducts and conduit, the right innerduct solution increases cable system capacity and protects, isolates, and identifies underground cables. We offer outdoor, riser-rated, and plenum-rated innerduct, both with smooth-bore inner walls and ribbed inner walls. If crushing is a concern, we can also help you select an appropriate innerduct wall thickness for a higher tensile rating.
The Multiport Service Terminals (MSTs) from Van Meter expedite the fiber deployment process and withstand temperature extremes, are easy to install to reduce labor costs, and facilitate easy troubleshooting. Our MSTs incorporate rugged hardened connector technology that can withstand the outside plant environment.
Van Meter offers a variety of outside plant supply accessories to improve aerial and underground fiber optic and copper cable plant projects. Accessories such as splice closures help ensure that cables are spliced and housed quickly and easily, and help complete your end-to-end network solutions.
