AFC Cable Systems, a division of Atkore International, offers new liquid-tight conduits for commercial and industrial lighting cable installation.

The company’s new “Liquid-Tuff” product is designed specifically for splash zones. Splash zones are areas that require regular washing, bleaching and disinfecting to prevent contamination and other hazards. Splash areas are commonly found in food production facilities, health care facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes, and large-scale food-service area such as commercial cafeterias, restaurants or food courts.

The product is flexible conduit designed to be resistant to moisture, oil and sunlight found in meat packing, food processing, poultry packing and pharmaceutical facilities. Its PVC jacket is not only water-tight but inhibits bacterial growth and does not degrade when using bleach for cleaning and sterilization.

Each type of liquidtight product is tested to the applicable ASTM and NEC standards with UL-listed and non-UL options. Liquid-Tuff products come in a variety of colors such as computer blue, orange, green, etc. and can even create custom colors to meet color coding needs. Additional options included liquid-tight products that are approved for direct burial, for use in splash zones, zero halogen, oil resistant and more.

Extreme Temperature Liquid-Tuff products have a temperature rating from -60 C to as high as 150 C.
