NM Run Through the Floor

Mike Lamb

Recommended Posts

Is it okay to run Romex straight through holes bored in the floor? Should there be some kind of raceway or conduit?

Depends on where it goes. If it's exposed above the point where it passes through the floor, then it should be protected by a section of conduit that extends at least 6" above the floor. If it's not exposed, then it needs nothing. 334.15(B)
