A customer has a store in a very nice brick building. He wants me to install some lights on the outside but doesn't want conduit.
Does anyone know of a surface raceway that is approved for use in wet locations?
Thanks

I assume the customer does not want external conduit as it would look bad, on that assumption could you use conduit inside and bore through the brick into a rear opening in the light fitting?

Unfortunately I need to install about 20 linear feet of conductor on the brick facia. Something like Wiremold would be great if it was rated for wet locations.

I guess that painting conduit to match the brick is a no-go?

How about going with low voltage lighting and run the low voltage wire. Depending on where the lighting fixture will be and If it is away from harms way you do not need a conduit for that.

Just a thought
