Has anyone seen or used this stuff? http://www.decorp.com/deProducts.shtml Please note that the page is very slow to load...took about 20 seconds on a DSL line. I sent them an e-mail about 6 weeks ago asking about listings and NEC complaince. Never got an answer. Don(resqcapt19)
Don, Considering the driven watts of some of the new systems.....it looks a bit worrisome to me. Bendable ? Flexible ? and paper thin ? doesn't sound like a good combination. I did not read every word of the site, but.... a company that does not want to discuss its approvals? Yeah, I'd say you got your answer.
Well, the LV stuff looks kinda OK, except the phone wire is rated only Cat 3. I might install someone I knew's speaker wires like that, but electrical wiring mounted on the wall and painted over? That smells like it has lawsuit written all over it. Where did you come across this, Don? Did you see it in use, or what?

All it needs is adequate thermal and physical protection and it will be fine. Otherwise you have to worry about someone driving a nail through it when trying to hang a picturen or all the fires that will be started when someone foolishly uses wall paper not rated to 90C.
Hi, Don. In the article, it asks the question, "Are you tired of hundred-year-old wiring technology?" My answer to this is a firm NO! I would much rather put trust in a time-tested, PROVEN method of wiring, executed by a professional electric contractor. In the hands of a DIY'er, I think this could have disastrous consequences.
I believe this trades safety for convenience and speed of installation. I think that's a bad trade.
Would somebody gently help me down from my soapbox now...
