Circular Handhole Circular Handhole

TeraSpan’s Handhole is a storage box designed for storing and splicing fiber optic cables. It is robust enough for placement in virtually any infrastructure.

Designed primarily for sidewalks and soft infrastructure such as boulevards, the Handhole is built for security and longevity.

There is the polymer concrete lip and cover version (40012) that can withstand more than 9,000kg (20,000lbs).


The Handhole provides storage and access to slack cable, micro-ducts, and pull strings for network versatility, extensions, and repairs with a higher number of fiber counts.

The Handhole can protect multiple splice enclosures.
