How close is to close? SEC


Recommended Posts

The drip loop is closer than 3 feet, I think.

"230.9 Clearance From Building Openings

(A) Clearance From Windows. Overhead service conductors must maintain a clearance of 3 ft from windows that are designed to be opened, doors, porches, balconies, ladders, stairs, fire escapes, or similar locations. Figure 230-7 230-09A.cdr

Exception: Overhead conductors run above a window are not required to maintain the 3 ft distance.

(B) Vertical Clearance. Overhead service conductors must maintain a vertical clearance of not less than 10 ft above platforms, projections or surfaces from which they might be reached [230.24(B)]. This vertical clearance must be maintained for 3 ft measured horizontally from the platform, projections or surfaces from which they might be reached. "

Hmmph! My 10 year old grandson can reach that drip loop from the deck with no diving involved. Look at the window above for a distance comparison and then tell me they'd have to dive. The wires are level with the deck rail.

I stand corrected.
