ANS - Flexible metal conduit is used to encase wires and provide protection against electrical hazards. They can also be called greenfield conduit, , flex and FMC.
ANS - Environmental conditions such as high temperatures and water, mean only certain types of flexible conduits can be used outside. We recommend choosing a flexible conduit that has a high IP rating and is UV resistant, such as our non-metallic conduits or our liquid tight IP67 rated steel flexible conduit
ANS - Our range of metallic conduits includes galvanized steel flexible conduit and PVC-coated flexible steel conduit.
ANS - Flexible metal conduit should be cut with a hacksaw or band saw. When cutting the conduit, it is important you cut straight across and smooth out the cut end. Alternatively, you can use a specialized tool to cut the conduit, but both methods are effective.
ANS - Yes you can! To join two pieces of flexible conduit together all you need to purchase is additional couplings and adapters.
ANS - No. Our range of fittings has been designed to only be compatible with the associated flexible conduit. However, we do have both non-metallic and metallic couplings available on request
ANS - When working in marine environments, it is important to use a flexible conduit that has high resistance to corrosion. We recommend you use a liquid-tight flexible conduit, such as our liquid tight IP67 rated steel flexible conduit
ANS - The flexibility and lighter weight of flexible metal conduit (FMC) make it easier to install than rigid conduit. It is most suitable for indoor environments like the interior walls of houses and office buildings and office ceilings. However, as it is not liquid tight it cannot be used in any environment that is subjected to moisture or wet conditions. This means it cannot be used in any underground or outdoor installations.
ANS - Our range of non-metallic flexible conduits includes PVC flexible conduit, Polypropylene (PP) flexible conduit and Nylon PA6 flexible conduit
ANS - IP stands for Ingress Protection, with each number representing a different rating. The first number represents the system’s protection from solid objects. The second number represents the level of protection from liquids. Our range of flexible conduits comes with the following ratings – IP40, IP54, IP65, IP66 and IP67.
