Posted By: Cav8andrewDo you know what your cabling runs will be, if not could you pre determine this with your electrician and install conduit runs with draw cables. Guess you could have problems with that proposal if you have to cross the curvature of the vaulting.
Posted By: joe90problem with wire covers or plastic conduit, drywall screws will still go through it!!!!, whenever I fix plasterboard over pipes or cabling I spray paint lines on the plasterboard to show where services are behind the board.
Posted By: Paul in MontrealHere the wires have to be 40mm
Posted By: joe90jonti, I find the plaster blocks the paint colour from coming through, plus I use a light colour paint.
Posted By: joe90 I have not come across a plastic conduit with metal sheath in it, the flexible stuff mentioned above certainly does not have any metal in it.
Posted By: joe90 With the hundreds of drywall screws needed for a ceiling I would not want to use a metal detector for every one.
Posted By: joe901/ 3/ only works if you adopt the method described by PIM. Definitely, always check with metal/voltage detector.
Posted By: Cav8andrewReally like the idea of this never really understood why all cabling is not carried in conduit rather than clipped or left draped.
Posted By: jamesingramcost and time ... and why do something that's unnecessary, it's wasteful.
Posted By: jamesingramas tony said, clip up battonsregs. state cable must be protected against damage during construction, (so depend on whether your electrician feels they're likely to get damage by PB tacker or not.),but by running in safe zones , horizantal or vertical of outlet they don't require additonal protection as long as you follow 17th ( ie. protect by addtional RCD). Outside these safe zones they require mechanicial protection <50mm deep
Posted By: Paul in MontrealI still remember drilling into a buried 240V cable in the wall in my house in the UK in an unexpected location - the sparks that shot out did locate it then, though!Paul in Montreal.
