Over 20 years experience makes us an expert in CIC. An electrical cable in conduit is a tube used to protect and route electrical wiring in a building or structure. This protective encasing may be made of metal, plastic, fiber, or fired clay. Most cable in conduits are rigid, but flexible conduit is used for some purposes. Electrical conduits provide excellent protection to enclosed conductors from impact, moisture, and chemical vapors. Varying numbers, sizes, and types of conductors can be pulled into a conduit. This simplifies design and construction compared to multiple runs of cables or the expense of customized running. Wiring systems in buildings may be subject to frequent rewiring for the safety of everyone in the building. Frequent wiring changes are made easier and safer through the use of electrical conduit, as existing conductors can be withdrawn and new conductors installed, without any major disruption to the rest of the wiring.
When installed with proper sealed fittings, a conduit will not permit the flow of flammable gases and vapors, which protects from both fire and explosions. Metal and plastic conduit can be bent at the job site to allow for a neat installation process without an excessive number of manufactured fittings.
