Topic: Electrical Conduits

One electrician told me  that one should clamp the conduits ( on wall/roof) carying the electrical wires because in case it becomes lose and touches the steel frame of the false ceiling, it could cause earthing which in turn can cause fire.  Is this true?

Dear Ajay
       Any defects in electric fitting can be dangerous at any stage.So one should follow the instruction carefully to avoid any mishap.

Dear Mr Gupta,

Kindly help me to understand, while for sure I will clamp the conduit on walls / roof but as these conduits are PVC , why should earthing issues happen if the wires are inside but the pvc conduit is touching the mild steel of the false ceiling frame?

On the other hand, even when you put the pvc conduit while casting of roof, it could be in touch with the Sariya ( Iron)?

regards

AW

I think Conduits should be fixed with roof and wall.

Thanks Purvi for your response. Yes, I will clamp them on roof /wall but my question was to understand why pvc conduits just in case touch the steel frame would cause earthing issues?

Regards
