A Sno-Shoe is an industry-approved fiber optic slack storage method. The unit is called "Sno-Shoe" because of its snowshoe shape. Excess fiber optic cable wraps around this unit, which holds the cable securely in place. The Multilink Plastic Sno-Shoe® is designed for these purposes:
When you access your fiber optic cables that are stored in the Sno-Shoe, your cables will be ready to function in the network. The Sno-Shoe is the most reliable storage method compared to other options on the market.
Sno-Shoes can be mounted on a wall, inside a vault or aerially, where it will protect your cable for years. These units work in any application and environment.
Proper fiber optic slack storage is important because it ensures that fiber optic connectors will last their expected lifespan. Fiber optic cables are most vulnerable during storage. Storing your fiber optic cable in a plastic Sno-Shoe protects your fiber from costly damage. The Sno-Shoe design keeps the bend radius intact and provides you with easy access to the fibers.
Any facility that uses fiber optic cables can use plastic Sno-Shoes, such as telecommunications and data centers.
