No metal wires are used in an ADSS cable. Optical fibers are either supported in loose buffer tubes, or arranged in a ribbon configuration. To prevent strain on the fibers, most types provide the fibres with excess slack length compared to the length of the supporting member.
Several designs of cable are used. In one type, small plastic tubes each containing up to eight fibers are filled with a gel compound, and stranded around plastic rods. The hydrocarbon gel compound prevents water from wicking along the length of the cable. The inner structure is wrapped with polyester tapes and encased in a pultruded glass reinforced plastic tube, which provides the structural strength for the cable. An outer sheath is applied to protect the strength member from ultraviolet light and from damage due to leakage current.
Another type uses a glass reinforced plastic rod with a notch in one side, which carries one or two ribbons of glass fibers. The notch is filled with water-resistant gel and covered with an extruded plastic filler strip. The whole assembly is enclosed in a sunlight and tracking resistant sheath. This design is not as flexible as the symmetrical cylindrical design above, but provides good access to the fibers at joints and is resistant to crushing. At full working load the optical fibers may experience up to 0.25% strain, which is undesirable for long fiber life.
