IMC Added to Two-Hour Fire Rated Electrical Circuit Integrity Systems

In 2012, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) made changes to the Electrical Circuit Integrity Systems (FHIT Systems) listing program.

These changes require the entire electrical circuit protective system undergo testing for the 2-hour rating, and that such rating be issued for the full system. The rating must also list all combinations of components and materials specified in each individual system.

Until now, systems including cable in a galvanized steel raceway only included EMT. IMC is now also included in FHIT system number 40A with Comtran Cable LLC’s Vitalink® Cable.
