Kwik-Couple

For Faster, Easier GRC Installations Make It Kwik-Couple®

  • No separate couplings to purchase, store, carry or install
  • High grade robust and ductile steel for long life
  • Corrosion resistant exterior and interior finishes
  • Certified to CSA Safety Standard C22.2 No.45.1
  • Kwik-Couple® Rigid Conduit is available in trade sizes 2-1/2 to 5*

*Kwik-Couple® Rigid Conduit does not contain a listing for wet locations and has not been evaluated for Class I Division 1 locations.

Full Electrical System Protection

Manufactured from mild steel, Columbia-MBF Kwik-Couple® Rigid Conduit is extremely resistant to damage from impact yet ductile to facilitate bending.

The 3/4″ taper NPT threads (ANSI B1.20.1) are full cut and hot galvanized after cutting. Color-coded end cap thread protectors keep the threads clean, sharp and also provide immediate trade size recognition. Even sizes are color-coded blue and 1/2 sizes black.

Coatings

Hot-dip galvanized throughout to deliver galvanic corrosion protection. Top-coated with a compatible organic layer to protect against white rust. The inside surface is evenly coated for quick and ease of wire-pulling, even through multiple 90° bends.

EMI Shielding

Columbia-MBF Kwik-Couple® Conduit is highly effective in decreasing the effects of electromagnetic field levels for encased power distribution circuits, shielding computers and other sensitive electronic equipment from the effects of electromagnetic interference.
