Organising your wires? Installing underfloor heating? Here’s how a flexible conduit can help

Flexible conduits are essential to any domestic, commercial, or industrial wiring project.

From helping prevent electrical fires to keeping all of your wires uniform and looking tidy, they’re not just an optional extra. Especially if you want to keep your home or business protected.

There are many different types of conduits – from split polypropylene corrugated conduits to plain galvanised steel conduits – that are all suited to different applications.

So which are best for use in home wiring projects, and what exactly can they be used for?

Our experts here at Flex It take you through some of the most popular domestic flexible conduits and what they’re most commonly used for in this article.

Garage and basement projects

If you’re working on an electrical project in your garage or down in your basement, you more than likely have wires that need to be routed underground. You’re going to need a conduit that you can be confident will protect them.

PVC conduits – such as the A- or G-series – are always a great choice for underground applications, as they provide excellent protection for your wires against dust, air, and water.

Wire management

PVC-covered steel conduits are ideal for wire management projects.

Whether you want to tidy up the cables behind your TV unit or find a solution for the tangled mess beneath your WFH desk, these kinds of conduits will be sure to get the job done.

Your electrical sockets are put under a lot of strain day to day – leaving them at an increased risk of overheating, or worse, starting a fire.

With a conduit from the C-series, you won’t have to worry about this, as they’re incredibly resistant to both fire and heat. So you can binge your favourite Netflix series and take Zoom calls to your heart’s content.

Smoke alarm systems

Every house needs a working smoke alarm system.

Whether you’ve just moved into your new forever home, or your old system is on the blink, installing a working smoke alarm is one of the best ways to protect your family.

The perfect addition for these kinds of projects is the D-series conduits.

Made from liquid-tight nickel-plated brass or stainless steel, they thrive in some of the harshest settings and provide excellent protection from moisture and heat. They’re also incredibly strong, so you can be confident these conduits will keep the wires in your new smoke alarm system safe at all times.

Underfloor heating

When you’re installing underfloor heating, be it in your conservatory or bathroom, you’ll need a conduit able to withstand high temperatures if you want to keep wiring protected. A galvanised steel conduit is your best bet.

Galvanised steel provides the best long-term protection, but the advantages don’t stop here – they’re also sustainable, reliable, and extremely cost-effective!
