The Safe Way to Protect Your Pressurized Closures from Ghost Leaks and your Filled Closures from Damage!

Pressurized Closure: The buried closure protective housing (closure coffin) is designed to protect your pressurized closure from the weight of the back-fill, as well as from the added weight of vehicles that run over the splice location causing costly “Ghost Leaks”.

All pressure crews are very familiar with this problem. The weight of the dirt and the road vibrations cause the closure to become disfigured around the end plate and a small leak occurs. When the dirt is removed the closure recovers and the leak goes away. This is why it is called a “Ghost Leak”. The Buried Closure Protective Housing can eliminate this.

Non-Pressurized: Even here the closure can suffer damage from the weight of the dirt. We have come to realize the re-enterable compounds do not provide the strength needed to withstand the weight. The Closure Coffin does!!
In rocky areas the sharp rocks can penetrate and deform many closures, allowing water to enter or cause pair damage from compression.

This product is constructed of high impact, chemical resistant plastic and is effective in all areas, even under major highways.

With the Closure Coffin, you have a uniform method that assures you the closure will be protected for the life of the cable.
