RIGID STEEL CONDUIT
Quality Long Lasting GRC (Rigid)
Allied Tube & Conduit Rigid Steel Conduit is precision manufactured for dependable, longlasting value and ultimate protection for electrical conductors. Highly resistant to damage from impact, it can be installed in all occupancies and in all locations, including Class I Division 1 hazardous locations.
Rigid steel conduit, covered by Article 344 in the National Electric Code® (NEC), is recognized as an equipment grounding conductor in Article 250-118 of the NEC and also provides excellent shielding from electromagnetic fields.
WEIGHTS & DIMENSIONS
FULL ELECTRICAL SYSTEM PROTECTION
Manufactured from high-strength steel, Allied Tube & Conduit RIGID combines damage-resistant strength with ductility to assure easy bending, cutting and joining. It also provides smooth, continuous raceways for fast wire-pulling. No need to worry about damage to the conduit system even when pulling through multiple 90Â° bends. Allied Tube & Conduit RIGID is hot-dipped galvanized inside and out. It’s top-coated with a compatible organic layer to protect against white rust and increase corrosion resistance. It is impact and crush resistant for maximum conductor protection. The 3/4″ taper NPT threads (ANSI B1.20.1) are full cut and hot galvanized after cutting. Color-coded end-cap thread protectors keep the threads clean, sharp and also provide instant trade size recognition. Trade sizes are color-coded blue, 1/2 trade sizes black, and 1/4 trade sizes red.
Allied Tube & Conduit RIGID is very effective in reducing electromagnetic field levels for encased power distribution circuits, shielding computers and other sensitive electronic equipment from the effects of electromagnetic interference.
