Faster & safer - New Slitting Tool for Flexible Conduit

Flexicon has launched a new slitting tool for flexible non-metallic conduit to help avoid accidents on site and to make the process of slitting conduits quicker and easier.

The simple to use hand tool has a protected blade and fits inside the conduit.  The contractor then slides it along the length of the conduit to slit it.  It can be used on conduit diameters ranging from 16mm to 67mm.

When used with the recently launched slit conduit insertion tool, cutting the conduit and then inserting cabling laterally into this is an estimated four times faster.  Flexicon can also manufacture slit conduit to order, but this tool gives customers the ability to do it themselves for small lengths.

Says Colin Legg, Marketing Manager for Flexicon:  “When contractors want to insert cabling into conduit laterally they would traditionally cut it using a knife.  This can be fiddly and time consuming and is a potential health and safety hazard.

“While we do sell slitted conduit, there are occasions when an installer may only need a short length, which is why we have introduced this simple hand tool.”
