Top Uses for Flexible Conduit


Flexible conduits are often used to encase electric cabling or wiring. This can be very helpful when it comes to organising a workspace and making it easier to locate particular cables for maintenance.

Injury Prevention

The installation of flexible conduit also prevents the development of a confusing mess of wires that may result in dangerous mistakes or even trip hazards.

For this reason, flexible conduits are exceptionally useful when it comes to encasing cabling in public spaces – as it will keep all of your customers or visitors safe from harm.

Damage Prevention

What’s more, many of the conduits from Flex-It are highly robust and can protect electrical components against damage incurred by impact or rough treatment.

We also provide conduit that is heat resistant, with some designs offering a temperature range of -50°C to +300°C, which means so they’ll function perfectly in locations where extreme temperatures are the norm.

Our conduits can even protect against pests or pets chewing through cables; providing a superstrong casing that will deter any creature.

Laying Cable Around Other Equipment

If you run premises that need surface mounted and accessible cabling to be laid across a relatively large distance, you may find that there are certain immovable obstacles in the way.
