Product Overview

Champion Duct® (RTRC) electrical conduit offers dependability through quality design and unmatched versatility. Below ground, concrete encased, underbridge – and almost anywhere in between – Champion Duct delivers a range of benefits over other rigid electrical raceway conduit materials like PVC-coated steel and thin wall EMT conduit pipe, including ease of installation, fire and corrosion resistance, excellent impact resistance and more.

Champion Duct
Advantages

Champion Duct Conduit offers the following benefits:

Expanded Support
Lower installation costs
better performance
Enhanced performance over the other conduit systems
  • Light weight contributes to installation ease, savings and safety
  • Corrosion resistance to many chemicals
  • No burn-through on elbows
  • One of the lowest coefficients of friction of any in-market product
  • Ability to retain its shape after impact or compression
  • Withstands extreme conditions and temperatures
  • Cable fault resistance —fiberglass duct will not melt or weld the wire to the inside of the conduit under fault conditions
  • Extended UL Listed support spacing distances rival rigid steel conduit support spans.
