What is a non-metallic flexible conduit?

A non-metallic flexible conduit is a type of plastic protective tubing that’s sole purpose is to keep electrical wires and cables protected from external elements. A clear difference between these conduits and metallic conduits is that they are lightweight.

Although there are many different types of non-metallic flexible conduits on the market, most of them share the same properties and are constructed from either polypropylene or PA6 nylon and feature a corrugated exterior – it’s this corrugation that allows for extra flexibility.

What can non-metallic flexible conduits be used for?

Non-metallic flexible conduits are ideal for a range of applications, including:

  • communication cables
  • fibre optics
  • low-voltage cabling
  • underground cabling

Some, like the H-Series PA6 Nylon Corrugated range, are UV resistant – making them ideal for outdoor applications.

Non Metallic Flexible Conduits FAQ’s

There’s no denying that metallic conduits protect sensitive circuits against electromagnetic interference from enclosed power cables. But non-metallic flexible conduits (commonly made from PVC) are resistant to corrosion and extremely lightweight which, in turn, reduces labour and installation costs.

The corrugated construction of non-metallic conduits provides excellent flexibility and there’s a range of specifically-designed fittings available, such as straight, swivel and elbow fittings, to name just a few.

Typical benefits of non-metallic flexible conduit include:

  • Resistance to moisture
  • Resistance to corrosive substances
  • Ease of installation

Not all types of conduit can be buried underground but, the good news is, non-metallic flexible conduits can.

A PVC conduit is arguably the best for outdoor applications. It’s incredibly lightweight and versatile – perfect for direct burial and above groundwork.

Liquid-tight flexible non-metallic conduits are considered to be the safest of all electrical conduits invented as they are both flame-resistant and water-resistant. These are an excellent choice for wet or damp areas and also come in handy where there is a high risk of fire.

Non-metallic flexible conduits, like these, can be buried below ground as, unlike metallic conduits, corrosion is no issue.

Ranging from PVC spiral reinforced conduit to split PA6 nylon corrugated conduit and polypropylene conduit, we have a fantastic range of non-metallic flexible conduits available for you to choose from.

The best one for you? Well, besides the size of the cable and the type of conduit, that depends on your application and the environment surrounding where cables have to be routed.

However, the team at Flex-It is always on hand and will gladly advise on the most suitable non-metallic flexible conduit for your needs. But before we do, we will need to know a little bit about your project.

Feel free to email your requirements to sales@flex-it.co.uk, and we’ll carefully consider which non-metallic flexible conduit is best for you.
