What are the Benefits of Flexible Conduit in Cable Management? 150 150 Flex-It Co. Uk - Flexible Conduit Systems & Wiring Accessories

The installation of flexible conduit is a great way to keep industrial cabling organised – but what are the specific benefits of this equipment and why might it be a good choice for your business?

In this article, the team at Flex-It – specialist manufacturers and suppliers of flexible conduits based in Leicestershire and operating UK-wide – explain a few of the reasons why the use of flexible metallic conduits or non metallic conduits may be the best possible option.

Protects Cables and Wires

One of the clearest benefits of flexible conduit is its capacity to shield and protect wires and cabling that would otherwise be vulnerable to damage or wear.

Flexible conduit may be selected to protect cabling against fire, pests, impact, corrosion, ingress of foreign materials, UV and a whole host of other potential threats.

Flex-It can manufacture conduit out of numerous different materials to ensure the best possible protection for cables within your business’s unique environment.

Easy Cable Location

Flexible conduit can be used to organise cables and wires in groups and route them in the right direction, making it far easier to locate each one and determine its purpose when undertaking maintenance.

Without the use of conduits, wires and cables can quickly become a tangled mess – making it hard to know where to start when trying to find one in particular.

Prevention of Trip Hazards

Because flexible conduit can be installed in a way that directs wires and cables directly from their source to their required outlet and secures them to a selected surface, you will be able to completely negate the risk of slips, trips and falls that they would otherwise pose.

Cabling Quickly Routed Around Obstructions

If there are immovable obstacles in the way of your cabling routes, there is no need to worry when using flexible conduit.

The bendable sheath can be easily installed to bypass obstructions without any need for the extra corner fittings and accessories that would be required when utilising rigid conduit.

Easy to Change, Replace and Upgrade Systems

Thanks to the way in which flexible conduit allows for the easy location and organisation of cabling, future proofing your setup is much easier.

The changing, replacement and upgrading of certain elements of a system can be simplified through the use of conduits of this kind.

Greater Tensile Strength

Because many of the types of conduit offered by Flex-It offer superior tensile strength, it is far less likely that your cables will be damaged or accidentally removed from their sockets as a result of being pulled.

What are the Benefits of Flexible Conduit in Cable Management? FAQs

Whilst all flexible conduits are designed to offer the same level of protection for your wires, they all have different properties and capabilities – so, therefore, offer different benefits.

Metallic conduits – like our B or SS-series – for example, offer excellent heat resistance. Their non-metallic counterparts may not be able to withstand extreme hot or cold temperatures as effectively.

Non-metallic conduits – such as our R-series – can withstand harsh weather conditions and are much more corrosion-resistant, whereas metallic alternatives may not be up to the jobs that require these properties.
