Subway tunnels, mines, and elevator shafts are challenging environments — not only for power lines and other cables, but also for the professionals installing them. Many rigid metallic and nonmetallic conduit (RMC/RNC) products offer protection but with drawbacks such as unwieldy weight during installation and poor flame resistance.
Phenolic Reinforced Thermosetting Resin Conduit (RTRC) systems balance ease of installation with a host of unique protection attributes. Read this FAQ to learn:
- How phenolic RTRC performs in terms of flame/heat resistance, smoke development, and resistance to grooving and piercing
- The types of applications where phenolic RTRC is the best option
- Best practices for installing phenolic RTRC
