Flexible Metal Conduit (Metallic)

Flexible metal conduits offer a unique and versatile solution for cable protection in both indoor and outdoor applications. With their spiral construction and high level of flexibility, these conduits can be used in a variety of settings, making them an ideal choice for many projects.

In indoor dry applications, flexible metal conduits provide an extra layer of protection to cables from contaminants that could damage them. where cables may be exposed to corrosive elements. Additionally, these conduits are also suitable for use in areas where vibration may be present, as they are able to absorb the shock and reduce the risk of damage to cables.

In outdoor applications, we have a special range of flexible metal conduits to be used that will provide protection from the outside elements. Its flexibility makes them ideal for use in outdoor settings, as they can bend around obstacles and curves, and can withstand exposure to rain, snow, and other elements. This makes them suitable for use in outdoor lights, security systems, and other outdoor applications.


PVC Covered Steel - High mechanical strength, highly flexible, waterproofing 

PVC covered steel flexible conduit offers good levels of protection from environmental elements making it suitable for use in the most conditions. The galvanised steel inner-core ensures that the conduit offers superior resistance to mechanical damage and provides high flexibility, making it ideal for use in indoor and outside applications.

The hardwearing PVC jacket offers a high level of protection from external forces, such as oil and UV, and also offers excellent abrasion resistance. The hardwearing PVC jacket also ensures that the conduit is designed to last. The PVC jacket also adds an additional layer of waterproofing, making it suitable for use in areas that are exposed to wet or humid conditions.

Galvanised Steel - Highly flexible, high mechanical strength, low fire hazard

Galvanised steel flexible conduit is a type of conduit used in electrical wiring and cabling applications. It is made from a formed strip of electro-galvanised steel that has been helically wound to create a square-lock construction. This type of conduit is commonly used for indoor and dry applications, such as lighting installations, underfloor heating, and other high temperature applications where flexibility and protection are both essential.

The galvanised steel construction of the flexible conduit provides excellent mechanical protection. The square-lock construction makes the conduit highly flexible, allowing for continuous flexing without compromising the integrity of the electrical cabling. This flexibility makes the conduit an excellent choice for applications that require frequent movement or vibration.

Another advantage of galvanised steel flexible conduit is its ability to be easily cut with a hacksaw and shaped to fit any given space or application.
