2002 Changes to the NEC®
Article 800 Low Res - Modem Hi Res - Cable/DSL        Page 5 of 5
Communication Circuits

800.52 Locations and Other Articles

The text to this subsection was revised to read:

(B) Spread of Fire or Products of Combustion. Installations in hollow spaces, vertical shafts, and ventilation or air-handling ducts must be made so that the possible spread of fire or products of combustion will not be substantially increased. Openings around penetrations through fire resistance-rated walls, partitions, floors, or ceilings must be firestopped using approved methods to maintain the fire resistance rating. The accessible portion of abandoned communications cables must be removed. Figure 800–4

Intent: The rule now requires the accessible portions of “abandoned cables,” as defined in 800.2 to be removed in order to limit the spread of fire or products of combustion within a building.

Author’s Comment: Wiring within a raised floor or above a suspended ceiling is considered accessible, see Article 100.
