joe.are we talking about the red brace or the 3/4 inch conduit on the floor in front of the panel or both.

but i have a question on the 3/4 inch conduit comming out of the transformer.how come they just did not come out of the panel.and it looks like just a j-box,not a disconnect switch.i see 2 conduits in the back of the transformer.line in and line out to the panel

and what about the panel on top of the other panel.look a little high to me

Regardless of the nice yellow pipe bollards, this equipment is clearly forklift bait.

I can not tell if they are for sure but the supports for the upper box look like framing members and the conduit in the x-former on the panel side is to high. There are even markings on these to tell you not to put anything above the mark! Is that A Notifier alarm panel above? the conduit looks as to be snapped at entry.

i am not sure but i wondering it supposed to have a disconnetion switch on primarly line side of transfomer and the conduct on floor is not really fully procted and should have some kind of angle iron next to it or above it to prevent damaged and the red beam is right front of transformer is worng place to put it and hard to repair and also the standing distance it have to be a full meter clear of ANY objects front of the breaker box (ps meter = 39 inches)
that one of gross vilotation on the spot

merci marc
