Clearfield Increases Its Supply Chain Efficiency With a New Protection Vault

Jan. 31, 2024
The Clearfield CraftSmart Fiber Protection Vault has streamlined its supply chain and is compatible with other Clearfield products.

Background on the vault

Clearfield recently announced the launch of its CraftSmart Fiber Protection Vault which “eliminates the current supply chain constraints and delivers a 300% improvement in shipping and inventory space”. The vault’s design allows for it to be shipped unassembled and flat packed, allowing for multiple vaults to be shipped per pallet and saving up to 67% off freight, transportation, handling, and storage costs.

Clearfield’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kevin Morgan, stated, “We have been diligently working to improve our supply chain process so our community broadband customers have the products each need when needed, so they can meet the deadlines and requirements for expanding fiber broadband as part of NTIA BEAD and other federal funding programs.”

Features of Clearfield’s CraftSmart Fiber Protection Vault

Clearfield’s CraftSmart Fiber Protection Vault accepts Clearfield Passive (PON) and Cross Connect Cabinets, which simplifies ordering for Clearfield Cabinet applications and can be assembled in less than five minutes. The vault is 36”x48”x36” and is made of High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with two lid options both made of HDPE, one is a split lid suited for Clearfield pedestals and cabinets while the other lid is a solid split for slack cable storage. The vault provides the capability for operators to mount Clearfield’s FiberFirst 12” plastic pedals on the lid.

The Clearfield CraftSmart Fiber Protection Vault is immediately available for orders and comes with all the tools and materials necessary for simple assembly in the field.
