Full Electrical System Protection
Manufactured from mild steel, Allied’s Kwik-Couple® Rigid Conduit is highly resistant to damage from impact yet ductile to facilitate bending.
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. Even sizes are color-coded blue, 1/2 sizes black, and 1/4 sizes red.
Conduit: Hot-dip galvanized inside and out to provide galvanic corrosion protection. Also, top coated with a compatible organic layer to protect against white rust. The inside surface is evenly coated for wire-pulling ease, even through multiple 90° bends.
Coupling: Electro galvanized inside and out to provide galvanic corrosion protection.
Allied Rigid Steel Conduit is very effective in reducing the effects of electromagnetic field levels for encased power distribution circuits, shielding computers and other sensitive electronic equipment from the effects of electromagnetic interference.
