Conduit

Any round, tubelike enclosure to protect insulated electrical wires from external mechanical damage. Conductors are pulled through by fishtape and connected to outlet boxes and fixtures. Flexible conduit consists of a spiral of flexible interlocking aluminum through which wires can be run. Rigid conduit consists of straight sections of aluminum, steel, or plastic pipe joined by fittings, which can be bent into curved sections. Thin wall conduit consists of steel tubing with a thinner wall than rigid conduit, which can be used where damage potential is minimal.
