Thin-wall EMT metal conduit routes and protects wire and cable. Also known as electrical metallic tubing, this lightweight conduit helps create smooth, continuous raceways for faster wire pulling than heavy-wall RMC or medium-wall IMC metal conduit. Conduit walls bend with a conduit bender, and this type of conduit may be cut with a hacksaw. Since it’s not as strong as RMC or IMC conduit, it’s ideal for installations along building walls and ceilings away from high-traffic areas. EMT is commonly installed in general purpose industrial and commercial applications.
