Wire Guard

PVC Conduit Pipes for Concealed Wiring

Protection against fire is crucial for preserving life and property, with electrical installations being a significant source of fire generation and spread. To address this concern, the design and industry standards prioritize the safeguarding of cables and raceways from fire hazards. Astral Wire Guard conduit pipes and fittings offer an effective solution, featuring excellent impact strength, superior lightproofing, and chemical resistance.

The conduit pipes and fittings also exhibit a high heat deflection temperature and remain ductile even in low temperatures. Astral Wire Guard conduit is available in three different wall thicknesses, catering to various applications. The thin wall variety is suitable for embedded use in concrete, while heavier grades are ideal for direct burial and exposed work. These conduit pipes and fittings demonstrate resistance to moisture and most corrosive substances.

Joints between the conduit and fittings are made using slip-on solvent-welded connections. These connections adhere rapidly upon assembly and achieve full strength within a few hours. Astral Wire Guard conduit ensures reliable protection and efficient installation in fire-prone environments.

FAQs

Astral Wire Guard pipes and fittings are made from materials with a VO flammability rating according to UL 94. This rating ensures that the burning stops within 10 seconds on a vertical specimen, with non-inflamed drips allowed. It signifies their high resistance to ignition and flame spread, providing reliable fire safety.

FRLS stands for Fire Retardant Low Smoke. FRLS conduits emit a reduced amount of smoke when they are burned. This characteristic is beneficial during a fire incident as it allows people more visibility and time to evacuate the building safely. Additionally, the lower smoke production minimizes harm to the human respiratory system, as it generates very little or no halogen gas when burned.

uPVC Conduit Wire Guard is designed to last over 50 years, offering long-term durability and protection for electrical systems.

uPVC, RPVC, and PVC all refer to the same material - Unplasticized Poly Vinyl Chloride. While certain regions prefer the term UPVC or RPVC, the term PVC is commonly used in the United States and some other areas to describe this rigid form of PVC.

Astral Wireguard uPVC Conduits Are Not Prone To Rust Even After Many Years. So This Gives Greater Life Span And The Pipes Can Be Used For Generations. Also Smooth Bore And Light Weight Enable Easy Installation With Less Manpower Requirement. UPVC Conduits Are Economical And Also Can Be Manufactured And Supplied Consistently As The Raw Material Availability Is Fairly Sufficient. UPVC Is Non-Condutive And Hence There Is No Chance Of Short Circuit.

Pipes are classified based on their thickness, which is easily identified through color markings. LMS (Light Medium Series) pipes are marked with a blue color code, MMS (Medium Medium Series) pipes have a yellow code, and HMS (Heavy Medium Series) pipes are designated with a white color code. These color markings assist in distinguishing the different pipe classifications and their corresponding thickness.

Astral Wire Guard conduit pipes and fittings are not only environmentally friendly but also promote sustainability. The manufacturing process is designed to be highly energy-efficient, minimizing the overall environmental impact. Additionally, after serving their intended purpose for an extended period, these conduit pipes can be recycled, further reducing waste and resource consumption. By prioritizing energy efficiency and recyclability, Astral Wire Guard contributes to a greener and more sustainable future.

Solvent cement must be used to join conduit pipes and fittings as it creates a strong and permanent fusion, resulting in a reliable and homogenous joint.

The exceptional mechanical strength of Astral Wireg Guard conduits guarantees no adverse effects, providing reliable and durable cable protection.

Astral Pipes maintains its commitment to standard quality by employing the vacuum sizing method and using the optimal quantity of lubricants. This approach imparts a matte finish to the piping while avoiding long-term brittleness and ensuring durability.
