Corrugated conduit is the plastic casing that encloses cables and wires so they can be routed and secured in a variety of locations. Corrugated conduit is used to protect and identify data and telecommunications cabling and electrical wiring and comes in different grades, sizes and colours for a range of settings. It has a series of ridges that allow it to flex more easily than smooth conduit without strain and the risk of kinking or breaking.
What to look for in corrugated conduit
Corrugated conduit comes in a range of sizes and grades, which includes medium- and heavy-duty varieties. The different colours can be used to suit different settings, such as where the conduit need to blend in by being white or grey, or stand out for safety or identification purposes and therefore be orange.
The medium-duty white or grey corrugated conduit is typically suitable for general applications where wiring needs to be concealed, but the protection required is limited because there is not likely to be any additional pressure or duress on the conduit.
By contrast, heavy-duty conduit, which is usually orange in colour, may be used in locations where additional protections are needed such as in industrial or rugged conditions.
