To strip the jacket or sheet of a micro duct bundle for joints or branches, installers make use of normal cutter knifes. As consequence micro ducts underneath jacket get damaged very easily. There is also a considerable risk of cut injuries for the installer due to the detached blade.
For this reasons the safety jacket stripper was developed. The jacket stripper has a safety blade for a safe and sound opening of micro duct bundles. The particular shape of the safety blade enable cutting into the jacket of a continuous bundle without access to an open end. The skate at bottom side of the blade avoid cutting into micro ducts. The safety blade can cut front and backwards and can be rotated during cutting for radial cuts. Thus, you can cut a window in the sheath of a continuous micro duct bundle. Due to the particular shape of the safety blade risk of injury for installer will minimize. The tool is suitable for tight and loose coatings of micro duct bundles. The jacket stripper also can open empty or with cable loaded micro ducts. Here again the skate at the bottom side of the blade avoid damage to the cable.
The knife handle is made of solid material. As a result, it is stable, has a sufficient weight for handy working. The handle can be opened with the integrated hex wrench to get access to double side safety blade and spare blade. If the safety blade got blunt it can be turned upside down to make use of second side. Inside of the handle a spare blade is located. The safety blades are sold separately, so that the handle can be used beyond
