Clearfield’s CraftSmart product line provides physical fiber protection for delivering a turn-key passive solution from the central office/headend to the customer premise. The CraftSmart FiberFirst Pedestal provides the most cost-effective non-metallic enclosures in the industry - meeting and exceeding the industry standards for strength, reliability and environmental concerns.
Designed and tested to withstand the harshest of environmental conditions, including UV, chemical and impact resistance, the FiberFirst Pedestal consists of a base and 2 part interlocking removable cover. The rear wall of the cover includes built in multi-use backplane for mounting various products inside of the pedestal. Two industry standard telco security screws (216) are used to attach and lock the cover to the base.
The base of the pedestal includes a built-in feature that allows the customer to add a ground stake to the pedestal.
The FiberFirst Pedestal is designed for maximum flexibility and can be deployed in multiple applications. One pedestal for all applications, eliminating the need for multiple pedestals and reducing the SKU’s, allowing the customer to reduce costs.
The CraftSmart Smart FiberFirst Pedestal incorporates field-tested slack management and fiber splice trays to provide a craft-friendly, splice only access solution. The splice only pedestal configuration supports the specific drop cable, multi-fiber and ring cut requirements.
