Jul. 25, 2022

Searching for conduit can be time-consuming - especially if you don't know much about the different types available. This is a quick guide to make your selection easier.

Only heard good things about flexible conduit? Not surprisingly, given their versatility, durability and ease of installation. But what exactly can they be used for? And more importantly, are they good for you?



5 primary uses for flexible conduits


Protect wires from damage

Flexible conduit systems are often used to wrap electrical wires, helping to reduce the risk of electrical hazards such as electrocution. For example, waterproof conduit covered with a waterproof plastic coating is used in combination with IP67-rated waterproof connectors to protect cables from water damage. This type of flexible conduit is best suited for outdoor applications.

Flexible conduit is also a good choice if you are concerned about pets chewing through the cable, providing a protective barrier.


Public Areas

In areas where public safety is a top priority, flexible conduit can provide the peace of mind you need. Our flexible ducts meet European guidelines for toxic gas emissions and smoke density in the event of a fire, making them the duct of choice for train stations, bus stops, hospitals, shopping centers and other public areas.

Our liquid-tight metal range is ideal for demanding applications such as air conditioning, communications, fire alarm systems and lighting, and also ensures durability and safety for the public.
