Champion Fiberglass brings expanded support spacing distances and real savings.
Have your clients ever cited number of supports required – or comparative support spacing distances – as a reason for using another material over Champion Fiberglass RTRC? The cost represented by additional hangers has been a consideration for project owners for some time, even when taking Champion Fiberglass conduit’s light weight, lower material cost, and easy installation into consideration.
Champion Fiberglass is invested in working toward the innovations that remove customer concerns and highlight the overall benefits of using RTRC – to that end, in 2016 Champion Fiberglass began working closely with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in order to clarify requirements and update the code around longer support spacing distances for epoxy conduit.
The result was longer support spacing distances for Champion Haz Duct® conduit in 2016; Champion Duct ® Standard Wall (SW), Medium Wall (MW) and Heavy Wall (HW) conduit followed suit in 2017.
Champion Fiberglass Conduit: Updated UL Listing for Expanded Support Spacing Distances
SUPPORT SPACING DISTANCES—COMPARISON
Champion Fiberglass conduit’s UL Listed support spacing distances have doubled (and in some cases, tripled) for many conduit diameters. They are now comparable to those offered by GRC and PVC-coated steel, in addition to several material and installation benefits these materials do not offer. These charts offer an at-a-glance overview of Champion Fiberglass conduit’s previous and updated support spacing distances (by diameter and product), allowing you to easily compare to those of GRC and PVC-coated steel.
