20’ EMT: Faster Installs, Less Handling, Less Labor and Fewer Couplings

Each electrical install has its unique challenges. While not suitable for every job, 20 Foot EMT and rigid conduit may be a simple way to lower project costs. That’s because it reduces the number of required connections while still conforming to the same high manufacturing standards of 10-foot lengths.

20-foot lengths are ideal for:

  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing Facilities
  • Health Care
  • Big Box Retail
  • Energy
  • Infrastructure
  • Mass Transit
  • Parking Garages
  • Some contractors that pre-fabricate stub-ups etc. have standardized on 20 Foot EMT to reduce waste.

We put two crews to the test. Each crew was instructed to install a 100 foot run of 2-inch EMT. The red crew used 10-foot lengths of Wheatland EMT and the yellow crew used 20-foot lengths.

Our free calculator app ‘EMT Calc’ calculates the monetary difference between using 20' rather than 10' EMT. It is available at wheatland.com/worksmarter, as well as the App Store and Google Play as "EMT Calc."
