John Guest direct buried straight connector is a transparent push-fit fitting for blown fibre direct buried applications, with unrivalled high impact resistance. Designed for simple installation and seamless performance under the toughest conditions, it helps eliminate fibre/cable snagging and uniquely provides 30J impact resistance – unmatched strength packed in a slimline push-fit fitting.

Featuring a collet with stainless steel teeth, the John Guest direct buried straight connector push-fit fitting provides a secure microduct connection with a simple and instant push-fit action. It eliminates the need for any tools, making the installation process efficiently straight forward.

In the event of repair or network expansion works, the connector provides superior installation flexibility, as the demountable feature of the solution allows for the system to be reconfigured without damage to the microduct or push-fit fitting. John Guest fittings are manufactured and assembled in the UK.
