Thanks for the reply. So is that shielding used for anything or can it be cut right off when you strip the wire? I'm not trying to bash but I think its pretty sad a licensed electrician I work with couldn't answer that for me, especially when I have to point stuff out to him on prints. One more question. If your doing nurse call do you splice those drain wires and cap them or just cut them off completely?
