Champion Haz Duct® XW Type Advantages
Champion Haz Duct® XW Type Conduit offers the following benefits:
Champion Haz Duct® Features
- 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 of GRC and PVC-coated steel
- Champion Haz Duct® XWall Conduit now features expanded support spacing distances for diameters from 3/4″ to 6″
- Class 1 division 2 conduit offers a low-smoke solution for facility and personnel safety
- Has been shown to stop a .22 caliber bullet from a distance of 20 feet. This makes it an excellent choice for high-impact areas and special applications.
- Approved by the National Electrical Code (NEC) for Class I, Division 2 applications in the U.S. and by the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) for Zone 1, Division 2 installations
- The lowest installation rates for most diameters according to the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Manual of Labor Units
- Affordable material cost
- Lower total installation costs (labor plus material costs) for most diameters
- Light weight adds to easier installation and savings compared to other types of conduit
- Low burn through
- Impressive corrosion resistance
- Ability to retain its shape after impact or compression
- Withstands extreme conditions and temperatures
- UL class 1 div 2 and one of the lowest coefficients of friction of any in-market product
- Will not melt or weld the wire to the inside of the conduit under fault conditions
