Metallic (Metal) Flexible Conduit (FMC) | Tricksall UK

Metallic Flexible Conduit

Flexible metallic conduit (FMC) is a great choice for both indoor and outdoor electrical wiring and burial underground applications, but you have to ensure the correct type of flexible metal conduit is used to offer the optimum protection and safety. At Tricksall UK, we offer a range for all electrical wiring setups, featuring our best-selling flexible conduit sizes: 20mm, 25mm, and 32mm in stainless steel, PVC-coated steel, galvanised steel, and liquid-tight metallic conduits. Additionally, we provide these conduits in sizes ranging from 10mm up to 100mm, and conduit coil lengths ranging from 1 meter up to 50 meters! You'll discover a vast selection of steel conduit accessories to ensure a safe and professional finish for your wiring project. This includes metal conduit fittings, glands, and connectors, available in both fixed and swivel types. We also offer a full range of conduit couplers, metal clips, and more. If you are in need of a high-temperature flexible conduit, explore our galvanised steel range with a temperature range of -50°C to +300°C. This metal conduit is resistant to corrosion and chemicals. For even more extreme temperatures, consider our stainless steel conduit range, which boasts a temperature range of -50°C to +600°C. Like the galvanised steel conduit, it is resistant to corrosion and chemicals. Both conduits have an ingress rating of IP40, making them perfectly suited for dry environments. If you need a flexible metal conduit for external wiring, consider our PVC-coated steel range. It offers an ingress rating of IP54, is highly flexible, resistant to corrosion and chemicals, and provides the added advantage of UV protection and weatherproofing, thanks to the PVC coating We also offer a 100% waterproof conduit, if this is what you require take a look at our liquid tight metallic range with an ingress rating of IP67.

Frequently asked questions...

What is flexible metallic conduit used for? Metallic Conduit, commonly known as Flexible Metal Conduit or FMC, is an essential component for ensuring flexible cable protection in electrical wiring systems. It provides robust protection, especially in challenging environments. Recognized for its exceptional flexibility, this versatile metal conduit tubing is well-suited for various applications requiring high mechanical strength (toughness), resistance against chemicals and corrosion, and flexibility in high-temperature environments. Whether deployed in industrial settings, indoor or outdoor installations, or areas susceptible to potential damage or vandalism, Metallic Flexible Conduit excels. It is available in different types, such as Liquid-tight metallic and PVC coated, as well as galvanised steel.

What is the best flexible metal conduit for my project? When choosing the best flexible metal conduit to protect your wiring, take into account whether it will be installed indoors or outdoors and whether the environment will be dry or wet. Are there high temperatures involved? Galvanised Steel conduit offers excellent strength and durability, is corrosion-resistant, and has a temperature range of up to +300°C, but it is best suited for dry environments. Stainless steel conduit again offers excellent strength and durability, is corrosion-resistant, and has a temperature range of up to +600°C, making it perfect for high-temperature environments. PVC-coated steel conduit provides protection against corrosion and chemicals and offers great mechanical strength. Due to the PVC coating, this range can be used both indoors and outdoors, offering UV resistance, flame retardant, and weatherproofing. When you need a 100% waterproof metal conduit, we recommend our liquid-tight metallic range.

How do you join flexible steel conduit together? Joining two pieces of flexible metal conduit is a straightforward task. Tricksall provides an extensive range of conduit couplers designed for various conduit types and sizes. Explore the full range of conduit accessories by visiting our website.
