Joe, Here is a bank sign I turned down the other day. Hope you don't think I'm being too picky. I don't think I will have to defend it too hard!

Gee, I can't imagine why this failed inspection! [Linked Image]


Man, who does stuff like this? I guess it keeps the real electricians busy though.

Hey 66
Looks like those Darwin Award Winners have been working for the bank. [Linked Image]

I don't see a problem. The wires are supported with 12" of the splice and entry into the sign.

I wonder if you can do something BEYOND red-tagging this mess?
I hope the bank wasn't "wired" by the same guy that did this... [Linked Image]

At least they used electrical tape and not duct tape. [Linked Image]

Yep CTwireman I'm joking.

Under what circumstances would something like this be acceptable in a temporary situation? What if it was fenced off or protected from people and damage?
Or is it simply unacceptable in any form? In other words, do it right and do worry about the temporary situation.

I've always wondered how long IS temporary?

I only know enough code to be dangerous....or safe? One of them. I'm trying to get into a NEC classes to learn more. I really enjoy listening to the experts chat. I've learned a lot already. Many thanks to all.

RSlater,
RSmike

RSMike, Whew! that's what I thought, but I was just checking.

I don't think this would be acceptable under any cicumstances.
