Literally, miles of cabling left in the ceilings and in the
walls from previous network and power installations by previous tenants have accumulated in most of our buildings. These abandoned cable are a source for
fueling fire, smoke and lethal toxic fumes that can incapacitate and kill.
Due to changes in the 2002 edition of the National Electric Code (NEC), these abandoned wires may now
render your property out of code, jeopardize your fire insurance, and represent a significant legal liability. The new rules make it a violation to have abandoned wires
in your building's risers or plenums and, in addition, mandate the use of specific wiring standards for new installs.
The new NEC rules are quite complex, and often confusing, causing building owners to wonder which way to turn. We have the knowledge and practical expertise to guide you through this rather murky area of danger and liability
related to abandoned wiring. Furthermore, we have a highly skilled technical staff capable of performing the
identification and removal task according to code and very economically.
Looking forward, we support the efforts of each building
owner to amend leases and residential rules, so at the building remains in compliance after each tenancy. On the other hand, in support of commercial
Tenants/Occupants, we provide technical expertise and cabling installation / cabling removal services which are fully compliant with NEC requirements and can avoid
end of lease penalties.
Abandoned cable can easily be found in hospitals, schools and office buildings that were built many years ago, and then expanded in recent years. Particularly
vulnerable and in need of urgent corrective action is the healthcare industry, where abandoned cables abound and safety concerns are a high priority.
