Scepter® Rigid PVC Conduit

Scepter® schedule 40 FT-4 rated rigid PVC electrical conduit for indoor and outdoor use.

  • Scepter PVC Conduit is suitable for exposed, concrete encased & direct burial
  • Scepter PVC Conduit is lightweight yet offers high tensile & impact strength
  • Scepter’s smooth interior surface reduces friction during wire pull

 

Professional electricians ask for Scepter conduit by name for the quality and superior performance that ensures a long trouble free life. Scepter conduit is light weight and offers excellent chemical resistance, high tensile and impact strength, and the FT-4 rating permits use in noncombustible construction.

Suitable for exposed, concrete encased and direct burial applications, Scepter conduit requires no extra protection and is third party certified by CSA, UL and NRTL.

SPECIFICATIONS

All wiring shall be installed in Rigid PVC conduit and secured to PVC boxes and cabinets by means of proper fittings. All boxes, access fittings and covers shall be furnished with threaded brass inserts, brass screws and PVC gaskets. Rigid PVC fittings and junction boxes shall be used for all outlets, pull boxes and junction points. All PVC junction boxes shall be NEMA 1, 2, 3, 4, 4X, 6P, 12 and 13 rated and UL Listed for wet locations.

Exposed conduit shall be securely held in place by suitable hangers or straps with the maximum spacing of points for supports not exceeding those specified in the CEC or NEC. Except when embedded in concrete, rigid conduit pipe shall not be clamped tightly. It shall be supported in such a manner as to permit adequate linear movement, allowing for expansion and contraction of conduit due to temperature change. Where a temperature change exceeding 25°F (14°C) is anticipated, rigid PVC expansion joints shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Proper care shall be taken when field bending, to maintain the internal diameter and wall thickness of the conduit. The contractor shall furnish and install Scepter Rigid PVC conduit pipe and fittings made by IPEX. Where the engineer’s specifications indicate Scepter products or equivalent, the equivalent shall be CSA certified and accepted by the Canadian Electrical Code. Due to broad manufacturing tolerances, all pipe and fitting products shall be of the same manufacturer.

ADVANTAGES

Scepter Rigid PVC conduit meets the national electrical code criteria for sunlight resistance, is approved for the purpose, and is appropriately marked.

Scepter Rigid PVC Conduit is one-half the weight of aluminum and one-sixth the weight of steel. As a result, handling and installation are easier and faster, reducing labour costs.

Easy Joining-solvent cementing is all that is required, eliminating the need for power-threading machines, pipe vices and cutting equipment.

Scepter Rigid PVC Conduit pipe and fittings are nonsparking and nonconducting, thereby eliminating the most dangerous ‘second point of contact’ and ‘phase to ground’ faults.

One of the greatest benefits of PVC is its excellent chemical resistance. It resists attack by acids, alkalies, salt solutions, and many other types of chemicals.

Scepter Rigid PVC Conduit pipe and fittings are designed and engineered to be concrete tight in all weather conditions.
