Code Q&A

Q. Can I secure signal or communications cables to ceiling-support wires or ceiling grid?

A. No. Ceiling-support wires and ceiling grids are not permitted to support raceways and cables. In this situation, you must provide independent support wires secured at both ends for this purpose in accordance with 300.11(A) [800.24].
