When to Use Electrical Metallic Tubing (EMT)?

 EMT is a rigid electrical conduit which known as Electrical Metallic Tubing. An EMT conduit is made of steel; in some cases, aluminum is also used, cheaper than a galvanized rigid conduit and lighter than a GR conduit.

EMT is also a very popular material in commercial and industrial buildings because it can be bent to a specific radius and directions and it is thinner than RMC. During recent years, EMT conduits have become popular in residential construction as it provides an exterior corrosion resistance surface.

EMT is a listed steel raceway of circular cross section, which is unthreaded, and normally 10 feet long.
