Product Training: Conlok Systems

Ep.6 – Weekly product training, this week we cover the Conlok systems with Dan Shorto.

A conduit is a tube in which electrical wires run for a variety of building or structural applications. Conduit protects wires and any individuals who may come into close proximity to the wires.  There are two different conduit systems available, the Conlok and the standard threaded conduit system.  Today we go over the benefits of the ConLok system, and why it is a much better system than the traditional threaded conduit.

The ConLok range is made from malleable iron and is HDG-coated.  This differs from the traditional conduit as it has a thread cut through the HDG coating.  This results in unprotected steel which is vulnerable to corrosion.  It is the only system on the market that has an unbroken HDG finish,  therefore it is a great choice for outdoor use or environments with exposure to chemicals.

Product Advice: What is Conlok?

What is Conlok & how does it work?

The Conlok system is an unthreaded conduit system that is designed to speed up installation.  The standard conduit tube is still used, but all the accessories are replaced with the Conlok version.

With the no thread comes many benefits including the fact that it is the only fully galvanised conduit system on the market which means it can offer enhanced corrosion resistance and a much longer lifespan.

Thy system works with a simple grub screw that tightens the grip on the conduit, which removes the need for threading on-site and reduced the risk of injury.

Does Conlok save time & labour costs?

Ask anyone who has used this improved conduit system and they will say the same thing, this system will give you up to 75% time and labour savings.  Because of this, it has been used as the preferred system for many major UK projects.  These sites include the New Heathrow Terminal 2 and the multi-million-pound Francis Crick Institute in London.

And as a side note, you can also use this system with lengths of threaded conduit tube if that is all you have available.

How to install the Conlok System?

Conlok Installation

Cut the conduit tube to the desired length and deburr the end.  Insert the tube length into the required Conlok accessory (similar to the PVC push-fit system).  Then secure the conduit into place with Conlok’s built-in grub screw using the Allen key that is supplied in the box.  Job complete, it couldn’t be simpler!

The video below outlines the installation guide for the Conlok System.
