Specification
  • Extra heavy Wall (XW) conduit
    Conduit built for hazardous locations, subject to physical damage locations (Class1 Division 2). Every product shall have a nominal wall thickness of 0.250” or 6.4mm.

    IPS (Iron Pipe Size) 
    Dimensional standard widely utilized in North America for both metallic (such as RMC, EMT, IMC) and Rigid Non metallic (RTRC, PVC and HDPE) electrical conduit. This trade size has established its Outside Diameter as the constant value.

    KEY PRODUCTS
    Split conduit (Patented design)

    Section of fiberglass conduit cut completely on its longitudinal axis while being hinged at 180° to the longitudinal cut. It can be opened and closed, allowing its installation over existing cables to protect them without having to remove them. The original Split conduit invention was issued to General Electric of Canada (CGE), our former parent company, under U.S. Patent No. 4175593 and Canadian Patent No. 1043277

    H strip
    Thermoplastic strip utilized to seal the split side of a split conduit.

    T strip
    Thermoplastic strip utilized to seal the hinged side of a split conduit.

    Sleeve
    Oversized section (12” or 305 mm in length) of straight conduit used to repair a damage section of a conduit.

    Wobble coupling
    Non-watertight fitting allowing for vertical and horizontal movements (±3°) of the raceway.

    Skew Wobble coupling
    Non-watertight fitting allowing for vertical and horizontal movements (±7.5°) of the raceway.

    O-Ring Expansion Joint
    Section of conduit including a deep socket unthreaded female section and a gasketed male section of conduit. It is designed to accommodate the thermal expansion and contraction of long sections of straight conduit resulting from ambient temperature variation. This guarantees the water tightness of the joint and no dislocation of the fitting.

    O-Ring Expansion/Deflection Joint
    Similar to O-Ring expansion joint described above, but designed to accommodate slight vertical changes in the direction of the incoming conduit by means of a flexible neoprene sleeve located at the exit of the expansion joint.

    Hangers (Intermediate or Anchored)
    Corrosion protected metallic supports utilized to hang conduit raceways in above ground installations.

    KEY TECHNICAL DESCRIPTIONS
    Glass content

    Weight percent of glass fiber present in the conduit, as % of total weight.

    Span distance
    Distance between conduit supports which varies based on the selected cable weight and conduit trade size.

    Deflection
    Deformation of conduit due to the weight of the cable installed inside it. Deflection is a function of the diameter and weight of the cables, and of the distance between conduit supports. Measured in inches.

    Coefficient of thermal expansion
    Ratio representing the change in linear dimension of a section of conduit resulting from changes in temperature (delta T°).

    Coefficient of friction
    Ratio of the force tending to maintain contact between two surfaces and the force which opposes the sliding of the surfaces one along the other.
