The Coyote Pedbox closure is one of PLP’s newest additions to their splice case line. It is a rugged closure that is designed to withstand the abuse that seems to be inflicted on pedestals in most settings. This closure can handle 108 splices of single fusion, or 288 of mass fusion, and is designed to be installed in closures 10 inches and larger. It can be mounted both from the side or the rear based on your needs. At the bottom of the closure, you’ll find 6 grommets for cable entry ranging in size from 3.5mm to 26 mm, including flat drop, so you can easily find whatever combination works best for the cable you use.
One of the best features of the Pedbox is the flip trays. These come in thin or deep profile depending on your uses and preferences, and can be removed from the closure to make splicing as easy as possible. Up to 3 thin profile trays can fit into the pedbox or 1 deep profile tray. There is also a plug and play application with all of your standard connectors. Behind the flip trays you’ll find a great amount of slack storage, so you won’t be caught short on slack if you find yourself needing it.
We know the issues that come along with pedestals; cars hit them, people use them as target practice, snakes, insects, and rodents tend to take residence in them. The Pedbox is one of your best defenses against these issues. It may not survive a car smashing into your pedestal at 50 mph, but it could very well protect your splices if a car were to back into a pedestal. It is a heavy duty tank of a closure that is designed to be your best defense against all of the standard issues that come with having pedestals in your network while also being user friendly and cost effective.
