Title: (EN) Connecting optical fibres
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

An assembly10for use in connecting optical fibers comprising a plurality of housings12for housing optical fibre connections. Each housing is pivotally mounted with respect to an associated rigid routing member14which has passages for routing fibers to the housing via respective flexible conduit means which extend between the routing member and the housing. Adjacent routing members14are push-fittable together such that the housings12are in an aligned bank when in stowed positions. Each housing12is pivotable from its stowed position out of alignment with the other housings for access.
