Looking for a solution to keep your wires neat and tidy? Maybe you need something to protect them from heat or moisture? No matter your requirements, flexible conduits are sure to help. But which is best for your project?

Whether you’re looking for a solution to help keep the wires beneath your WFH desk organised or to protect the wires used in an industrial project you’re working on, flexible conduits are just what you need.

From protecting your wires from dirt, dust and water to offering great strength and flexibility, investing in this kind of protection for your wires is a no-brainer. But with so many different types of flexible conduits available, it can be difficult to know which is best for your project.

Here, our flexible conduit experts explain the features and benefits of both metallic and non-metallic conduits, and how to select the best one for your wiring job.

Metallic conduits

Metallic conduits are incredibly flexible and resilient and will do a great job of protecting your vulnerable wires.

There are many different variations available, from plain galvanised and PVC-covered steel to liquid tight and LSOH-covered steel – but they’re all suited to demanding, outdoor cabling projects.

Take the D-series, for example.

These conduits – thanks to their plastic coating and sealed fittings – make the perfect choice for lighting, communication, air-conditioning and fire alarm systems, along with a list of other challenging environments.

Non-metallic conduits

Non-metallic conduits, on the other hand, are better suited to indoor wiring jobs.

Being resistant to moisture and corrosion and super easy to install, they’re fit for a range of commercial and domestic purposes and are sure to help keep your cables neat, tidy and safe from any harm for years to come.

These conduits are incredibly versatile and can be used in underground and wet areas – like in swimming pools or spas – and even to tidy up the tangle of wires behind your TV unit or beneath your work-from-home desk.

Which type of conduit is right for my project?

Both metallic and non-metallic conduits can be used in pretty much any wiring project. But some will do a better job at encasing and protecting your wires than others.

To determine which conduit is most suitable for your project, take your time weighing up the pros and cons of each type and give our experts a call for further advice.
