How Champion Fiberglass Saves Money from the Outset


 

 
How Champion Fiberglass Saves Money from the Outset

Did you know that Champion Fiberglass is typically the most affordable conduit based on initial material costs? Overall project costs tend to be lower as well, because it saves on installation. This occurs because the product is naturally lighter (yet stronger) than most other conduit materials. Installation moves faster because of better portability in the field.

But let’s take a closer look at initial material costs.

Using our conduit calculator, we’re able to compare the same 4”, 100 foot piece of conduit across material types. Champion Fiberglass costs $594. Expressed as price per foot, that’s $5.94/ft.

Here’s what the calculator revealed:

Going head to head with aluminum, the same length of conduit costs $1000 or $10/ft. That’s a savings of 40% when selecting Champion Fiberglass conduit.

Next, we consider GRC. For this same 4”, 100 foot piece of conduit, GRC costs $17/ft., which means you are saving 65% when you choose fiberglass conduit over GRC for your next project.

Finally, PVC-coated steel conduit in the 4”, 100 foot piece costs $30/ft. Compared to fiberglass conduit, that is a whopping 80% savings when specifying fiberglass conduit.

So you can see how fiberglass conduit generates project savings from the start. And the strength and durability of Champion Fiberglass conduit ensure a long lasting product providing savings down the road.

Need further evidence? Here is a case study of a wastewater treatment application where fiberglass conduit demonstrated substantial project savings over aluminum conduit.
