yeah i was told by my teacher that the staples were not listed and that he even takes the insulation off the staple and stacks 3 wires under one staple(he is the state of Connecticut Electrical inspector so i guess he can do anything he wants anyway)
also, i was thinking it wouldn't give enough clearance(1.5 inches) from the edge of 2x4 if run side by side also...but i guess i'll just do what he says.
so if GFI's are rated for the full load, then do I just take 20A and divide by 1.5 and arrive at total number of receptacles for a 20A circuit (including the GFI itself)? the code the same for a kitchen in an office as it is in a dwelling unit? I tried looking it up but couldn't find anythingspecific to kitchens in office buldings.

I don't understand why the 3M SI-1 stakits aren't used more in situations like mentioned. It allows 4 cables and is designed to maintain the 1 1/4" rule clearance.
