Flexible Metal Conduit | Metallic Conduit

Flexible metal 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.

  • When can you use flexible conduit?
    Flexible conduit is incredibly versatile. Whether you're installing an Ethernet cable at home or setting up external garden lighting, it serves as an ideal solution for a variety of wire and cable protection applications, including commercial and heavy-duty industrial uses.
  • Is flexible conduit waterproof?
    Yes, but only some types of flexible conduit are waterproof. Tricksall offers three different types of waterproof flexible conduit for you to consider: Liquid-tight metallic IP67,Nylon polyamide IP68, and PVC spiral reinforced IP65. Take a look at each range to determine which waterproof flexible conduit is best suited to your application. If you need advice, feel free to get in touch with our team.
  • Can I use flexible conduit underground?
    Yes, you can use conduit underground, but not all types. They must be watertight and provide mechanical strength (crush resistance) to the electrical cables they are protecting. Tricksall offers a range of underground conduits, such as our PVC Spiral Reinforced and Liquid-Tight Metallic options. Either of our underground electrical conduit ranges will provide the protection required.
  • What is flexible conduit used for?
    Flexible conduit is a durable, flexible pipe designed to ensure the safety and protection of electrical wires and people in various indoor and outdoor environments. Flexible conduit is manufactured in a range of materials, including polypropylene, PVC, Nylon, galvanised steel, and stainless steel. Each material offers its own benefits, making them suitable for different environments. Please get in contact if you need any advice with which flexible conduit is best suited for you.
  • What flexible conduit should I use?
    Non-Metallic (Plastic) Flexible Conduit Range Polypropylene, Nylon PA6 & PVC Flexible Conduit Our flexible electrical conduit are manufactured from high-quality materials, such as polypropylene, PVC and nylon PA6. Plastic flexible conduit is highly preferred due to their lightweight nature, easy handling, and cost-effectiveness compared to steel flexible conduit. Our flexible plastic electrical conduits finds applications in a wide array of scenarios, including indoor and outdoor use, automotive, marine, residential, commercial, and industrial electrical wiring applications. However, there may come a time when you require a cable conduit with high mechanical strength (toughness); this is when you should consider flexible metal conduit. Metallic (Steel) Flexible Conduit Range Galvanised Steel, PVC Coated Steel, Stainless Steel & Liquid-Tight Flexible Conduit Steel flexible conduits, also known as Flexible Metallic conduit (FMC), come in four main types: galvanised steel flexible conduit, PVC-coated steel flexible conduit , stainless steel flexible conduit, and liquid-tight metallic flexible conduit. This range of electrical metal conduit provides significantly more robust and durable mechanical strength (toughness) for both indoor and outdoor electrical wiring protection compared to flexible plastic conduits. However, they are heavier and more expensive.
  • Choosing the right size flexible conduit for your electrical wiring project
    When choosing the best conduit size for your electrical wiring project, it is not always a straightforward decision to make, as there are factors you need to take into consideration. These factors include determining wiring sizes, conduit fill, bending radius, and deciding on the type of conduit—whether metallic or non-metallic. Visit our info centre in the menu to read further.
