FireSafe Conduit

1. ATS Conduit Overview

Reinforced Thermosetting Resin Conduit (RTRC) is rapidly becoming the conduit of choice for outstanding performance and ease of installation in a variety of demanding environments. The ‘FireSafe’ system is manufactured using phenolic resins which provide unrivaled protection in a fire and is the perfect choice for critical electrical supply.

2. FRP Conduit advantages

ATS Fiberglass and ‘FireSafe’ Phenolic Conduit is available in standard (SW) and extra heavy (XW) wall thicknesses and is approved for above and below ground applications.

Lightweight

Averaging less than 1/10th the weight of steel allows for faster installation and up to 3 times greater spacing between hangars.
