inspection threaded elbow/tee, single switch box, pipe hanger/supports, accessories, bender and
hand tools etc.

3.2.2

Steel conduits shall conform to BS 31-1940 and BS 4568-1970 standard.

3.2.3

Conduit boxes will be installed at the positions as defined on the shop drawing to accommodate all
the light switches, power outlets, lighting points and ELV equipment. Conduit boxes will be
connected with appropriate sized conduits.

3.2.4

The routing of the conduits that be exposed shall be according to approved shop drawings.

3.2.5

After finishing the concrete /brick wall, mark the conduit routing as per approved shop drawing.

3.2.6

Install the Steel and Flexible steel conduit in straight runs and without any diagonal layout.

3.2.7

The exposed conduits shall be held in the right position by using the saddles which are installed
directly to the concrete/brick wall.

3.2.8

Distance between two saddles shall be followed as shown on Table-1.


Conduit size
Maximum distance between saddles
20
1.2 m
25
1.5 m
32
1.8 m
Maximum distance from saddles to boxes : 0.3 m
Maximum distance from tangential line to saddles : 0.3 m
Standard of saddle spacing (Ref: BS 31)
Table-1

3.2.9

The maximum permissible length of the metallic flexible conduit used for the connection to the
fixture unit should not exceed 2000mm (see detail 03).

3.2.10 Install straps or other means of securing the conduit in place is spaced much closer together (every
1500mm and within 300mm. of each end) for flexible conduit than is necessary for rigid conduit
(see detail 01).
3.2.11

To provide flexible conduit for exposed conduit installation where have the expansion joints, joint
for fixtures, and equipments (see Detail-01 to Detail-05).

3.2.12 Always lay the exposed steel conduits parallel or perpendicular to walls and structural members.
3.2.13 Minimize the number of bends in any single conduit run. Follow minimum bend radius
requirement.
3.2.14 Bushings, locknuts, couplings, connectors are made up tight to ensure good continuity. Use double
locknuts when insulating bushing is used.
3.2.15 Install boxes with a separate supports.
