EMT stands for “Electrical Metallic Tubing,” and it is a type of conduit used for the protection and routing of electrical wires in a building. EMT conduit is typically made of galvanized steel or aluminum. The galvanized coating helps protect the conduit from corrosion, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

They have a thin-wall construction, which makes it lighter and easier to work with compared to some other types of conduit. However, this also means that it provides less physical protection to the enclosed wires compared to thicker-walled conduits. EMT conduit is typically joined using specialized connectors, such as couplings and connectors with set-screws. This allows for easy assembly and disassembly during installations or modifications.

It is known for its flexibility, and it can be easily bent to follow the contours of a building or to navigate around obstacles. Bending is often done using hand tools or mechanical benders.
