Sterling’s Splicing Truck Bodies
Sterling’s Splicing Truck Body refer to our SB-01, SB-02 or SB-03 models which are fiberglass slip-in service capsules that have been customized to suit the telecom industry. Sterling’s Fiber Optic Splicing Truck is a product that was developed over 10 years ago and has seen upgrades to suit the ever-changing demands from the industry.
Sterling’s Fiber Optic Splicing Truck Cap leads the telecom industry as it allows technicians to go further, have a more comfortable work environment, increase productivity, satisfy more customers and increase billable hours. These Fiber bodies are easy to deploy; saving you time and money by not having to hire and coordinate flagging teams when set up in city and suburban areas. They don’t require holes to be drilled through the truck when installed, and they are transferrable from truck-to-truck with a 10-year warranty. These truck bodies will easily outlast your first truck.
Why the Sterling Fiber Splicing Truck Body is the Original
1. One Piece Fiberglass Unibody
Sterling’s Truck Capsule are made of a pure resin fiberglass unibody with no filler or laminated seams in the upper body of the capsule, meaning the entire upper body is made from a one-piece mold. This ensures extreme durability and no leakage.
2. Reinforced Internal Strength
The Sterling Capsule has an extensive internal structure throughout the interior of the capsule, including corner braces which allow for it to hold more weight on the roof. There are a minimum of 6lateral and 6 vertical interior wall reinforcements built into the fiberglass structure, running the entire width and height of the cap. It is the only capsule we know of that can be lifted from the inside roof with 1500lbs of weight inside the cap, this allows for easy transferability, and having additional components mounted like our AC unit for temperature control.
3. Nose Cone Weight Capacity
Sterling’s nose cone has a weight capacity of 600lbs compared to 250lbs of our competitors. This comes in handy when you need to transport additional equipment to the job site.
4. FOSC door
Sterling’s two caps have slightly different cable access door configurations, but they both have slam latches on both rear doors, and function the same way. By offering a small opening for the cable to run through, technicians are able to splice fiber in a dry and dust free environment. Other providers offer a very large opening which can lead to foreign materials inside of the capsule, potentially hindering the splicing operation, and creating discomfort in the workspace.
Sterling’s fiber optic truck body comes with manufactures limited lifetime warranty and is outfitted with aluminum interior shelving and cabinetry with 10 year warranties.
