Essential Info

Remember when Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) was the standard for residential telephone wiring? What about Cat. 3 wiring and the short-lived Cat. 4? Despite the enormous benefits of the current Cat. 5E standard, home networking experts are already pushing for Cat. 6, even Cat. 7. With so many technological advances in home networking, it's impossible to know what type of wiring you're going to need in 10 years. But the good news is that with a little extra planning today, you can make upgrading in the future easy thanks to the Resi-Gard™ Flexible Raceway System. This 2-Inch Flexible Raceway Tubing offers you maximum capacity for cables today and in the future so you won't have to tear up walls, floor, or ceilings to install new cable.

What's Included

  • 1x - 2-Inch Flexible Raceway Tubing, 50 feet
  • More Info


    Future-Proof Your House
    This 2-Inch Raceway Tubing is part of a system. Install this a la carte line of cable raceways and connectors just once, and whenever upgrades become necessary, you'll be able to remove outdated cable and replace it with new cable without tearing up the walls. Even if you don't plan on living in the same house 10 years from now, installing raceways today will increase your home's resale value, since future owners know they can add new cables without the expense of ripping up walls, digging through floors, or poking through ceilings. The 2-Inch Raceway Tubing comes in 50 foot sections, complete with pre-installed pull tape to make pulling throughout your home easier. Join lengths of the 2-Inch Raceway Tubing with a 2-Inch Coupler for Flexible Raceway. Terminate the ends with a 2-Inch Terminal Adapter. Clamp the tubing to studs, joists, etc. as needed with 2-Inch Clamps For Flexible Raceway 5-pack.

    Why Use Raceway?
    The Resi-Gard Flexible Raceway System does more than simplify future upgrades; it also protects your current wiring from damage and/or tampering. And just like blue tubing and boxes are known throughout the electrical industry as carrying high-voltage conductors, the raceway's bright orange color alerts everyone that it contains low-voltage wiring. In addition, the system has been fully tested to UL 2024, one of the strictest home wiring standards.

    Just as there are several grades of residential cabling, we understand that there is not an all-encompassing Resi-Gard solution that covers every home. Raceways and fittings are available in three size groupings, with ¾-inches, 1-inch, or 2-inch diameter, depending on your home's needs. To help you decide what's best for your home, the raceway manufacturer has established three levels of futureproofing:

    Level 1 — Minimum
    At minimum, we recommend installing this 2-inch Resi-Gard Flexible Raceway from the distribution box area into the attic of your home, otherwise known as a vertical chase. These raceway chases create pathways inside the walls that allow you to easily distribute future cables. Depending on the size and construction of your home, more than one chase may be necessary.

    Level 2 — Moderate
    Moderate coverage includes a chase from the basement to the attic, and one Resi-Gard Flexible Raceway run to every location where you think you may want to upgrade your cable in the future, like every room where there's a computer with an Internet connection. Then, as technology changes, those cables already have the pathway in place so they can be easily upgraded. This 2-inch size is perfectly suited to install as any of the main arteries of this type of system.

    Level 3 — Maximum
    Maximum coverage includes Resi-Gard Flexible Raceway runs to every outlet. This ensures maximum upgrade ability, protection, and identification. It doesn't matter what low-voltage application your outlet will encounter; the pathway will be in place to allow maximum flexibility. The smaller 3/4 inch or 1 inch Raceway Tubing would be perfect for these runs.

    Great Product
    KENNETH -- montreal, QC   10/14/2011
    Perfect for simplifying the future running of data cable. Smarthome should include the special PVC glue designed for this product in their offering.
    ROBERT -- washington, DC   5/20/2011
    Carlon's whole Resi-gard system is great. Once you run it to anywhere where you need network or video cables, it makes adding or replacing cables easy. Smarthome should also carry Carlon's Resi-gard solvent cement and Vanco's Box Buddy Low Voltage Mounting Brackets - two things I needed to get elsewhere to finish the job.
    WAYNE -- chilliwack, BC   4/2/2010
    Great for fitting large or multiple cables for home theater. Do it right the first time and install this in your walls before applying wall covering, drywall, panelling, etc. When you need to upgrade or remove your cables, it is much easier and cleaner. Will purchase again if I need more.
    VALERIE -- eden prairie, MN   2/26/2010
    Great product - we had something like this in mind but didn't even know it existed until we saw it here. We used it in on our basement finishing project to give us security for future wiring needs. Just suggest keeping in mind that the 2in size isn't super flexible - but it worked for us where we needed it.
    VINCENT -- del mar, CA   1/24/2010
    This is very large raceway and can only be used in certain areas where a clear run is needed between two floors or between locations that are a straight shot from each other. Not very flexible so you you need plenty of room to make a bend. I used this in an area with a dropped ceiling and found it provided enough room to make a reasonable turn. If you have tight spaces, this is not the product for you.
    JEFFREY -- frisco, TX   9/21/2009
    We installed this product in the new house we are building. The house isn't finished yet so we haven't had the opportunity to run any cable through it yet. However, it arrived quickly and was easy to install.
    EMILIA A. -- pine grove, CA   8/16/2009
    I've bought from Smarthome before and have had the same great service. Tom
    WAYNE -- shelby township, MI   7/31/2009
    Great product. Takes a little heating with a heatgun to straighten it though.
    JAMES -- edina, MN   2/17/2009
    Worked great. Much easier to install than non-flex tubing.
    SCOTT -- carmel, IN   10/8/2005
    Everything met my expectations.
    BRETT -- prescott, AZ   7/3/2005
    Will keep my home technologicaly current.
    ERIC -- ringwood, NJ   1/22/2005
    Began installation today; going well
    JEROME -- san francisco, CA   4/15/2004
    Outstanding product
    JEROME -- san francisco, CA   4/6/2004
    Worth many times its weight in gold. This item has made my home theater fully upgradeable into the future and very flexible. I can now upgrade my video projector regardless of any future adapter (DVI-X, etc) the manufactures decide to invent.
