Flexible conduit specification and selection guide

16 September 2010

Flexicon has made it fast and simple for contractors and specifiers to select the correct flexible conduit system for applications, with the launch of its 100 page product and specification guide. Customers using the guide can refer to specification tables for both non-metallic and metallic conduits to select product based on the hazards that the cabling needs protecting from.

If the contractor specifies non-metallic conduit they can use the fold out selection page to cross reference the conduit, its diameter and appropriate fittings to build a complete system without constantly changing pages.

For metallic conduit systems all of the information they need for each system is contained on a double page spread.

Says Colin Legg, marketing manager for Flexicon:  “Flexible conduit protects cabling, so ideally a contractor should consider the hazards that it will be exposed to before making a selection.  Our guide makes this process as simple as possible.

‘In the ten years that we have been in business the number of different types of flexible conduit systems have expanded hugely to now include over 45 different systems.  This means that the protection of cabling can be closely geared to the hazards that they face, but it can also be harder to make the correct specification.  The challenge facing manufacturers is to make this specification process as simple as possible.”

The new 100-page guide also contains technical advice covering ingress protection, low fire hazard performance, cutting and assembly and resistance to different chemicals.
