Title: (EN) CONNECTING OPTICAL FIBRES
(FR) CONNEXION DE FIBRES OPTIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) An assembly (10) for use in connecting optical fibres comprising a plurality of housings (12) for housing optical fibre connections. Each housing is pivotally mounted with respect to an associated rigid routing member (14) which has passages for routing fibres to the housing via respective flexible conduit means which extend between the routing member and the housing. Adjacent routing members (14) are push-fittable together such that the housings (12) are in an aligned bank when in stowed positions. Each housing (12) is pivotable from its stowed position out of alignment with the other housings for access.
