2. Flexibility

How will the conduit stand up to the stresses of continuous movement?

ROHRflex conduit has a wide range of bend radii. These same conduits support continuous motion and frequent reverse bending with extreme flexibility.

3. Fire Resistance

What happens to the conduit in the instance of fire or exposure to flame?

When comparing ROHRflex conduit to liquid tight conduits, ROHRflex has superior flame resistance and extinguishing properties. Protection up to UL 94 V0 allows the conduit to quickly stop burning with no flaming particle droppings.

4. Installation

Is the complexity of installation a concern for you? Are you looking to cut labor costs during installation?

ROHRflex conduit and corresponding FLEXAquick fittings can drastically reduce labor costs during installation. Conduit and fittings can be fully connected in five seconds or less.

5. Temperature

Cables can be subject to various temperatures depending on the environment. Some cables in the same assembly could be exposed to a wide range of temperatures. How do you protect these cables?

ROHRflex conduit can withstand a variety of temperatures. The standard conduit easily withstands temperatures ranging from -50°C (-58°F) to 200°C (392°F).

6. Connection

Have a project with specific thread or special requirement?

Fittings for ROHRflex conduit are available in a wide range of styles (straight, 45°, 90°, etc.) and various thread types (NPT, Metric, PG). For more complex projects specialty fittings are also available such as T and Y style fittings with protection as high as IP69K.
