Title: FIBER OPTIC CONNECTION BOX WITH FLUID DRAINAGE CHUTE FOR PREVENTING WATER INGRESS
Abstract:
A connection box (100) for securing and storing a connection between service-provider-side fiber optic cabling includes a rear panel (102), outer walls (104) extending away from the rear panel (102) and forming an enclosed loop around a perimeter of the rear panel (102), and a flange (140) formed at a front side of the outer walls (104). The front side of the outer walls (104) is opposite from the rear panel (102). The connection box (100) further includes a channel (142) formed in the flange (140). The channel (142) is defined by inner and outer sidewall (144, 146) that face one another. The connection box (100) further includes a fluid drainage chute (148) formed in the flange (140), and an attachable front door (130). In a closed position of the connection box (100), the attachable front door (130) attaches to the flange (140) and encloses an interior volume of the connection box (100), and the fluid drainage chute (148) forms a conduit between the channel (142) and an exterior environment of the connection box (100).
