hi,
i have a situation in a residential restoration where there is t-bar cielings being installed. i cant find anywhere in the code that prohibits running the cables on the face of the studs ABOVE the grid. the cieling is not usable and the only way i see to do it is to run the cables up high across the face of the stud. all rooms are getting this except bath and laundry.

it would be a hell of a job to drill all of those studs! dont want any part of that!

thanks for any suggestions/advice..

-regards

frodo

Hi Frodo,
I'm sure someone will be able to cite code but I'm nearly certain it's allowed.
It is protected. I think a change regarding romex above dropped ceilings occured in 2002 but it applies to commercial installations.
