Conduit Fittings


Conduit fittings connect conduit to other conduit or to an electrical box. They are available in various metals and with different levels of moisture protection.

Products include cast outlet boxes, conduit fittings, and cable sealing fittings for hazardous (classified) locations. NEMA covers fittings and accessories for use with:

  • Armored and metal-clad cables
  • Conduit hangers, straps, and hardware
  • Electrical metallic tubing
  • Fittings for ordinary and hazardous locations
  • Flexible, intermediate, and rigid metallic conduit
  • Liquidtight flexible metallic and nonmetallic conduit
  • Nonmetallic-sheathed cables

NEMA Members develop public inputs for the National Electrical Code® (NEC) as well as other local, national, and international codes. Hazardous location boxes and fittings are addressed by a standalone subcommittee, which develops guidelines and a training module.
