Question

NEC And Splicing Wiring


Is there any scenario allow under the NEC where one could splice wiring (220) and not have a junction box which is exposed? In other words, I do not wish to have a blank wall plate. Is there any type of splicing kit which can be put in a junction box and buried behind the drywall?

Nope.
Are you still havin problems with the Radiant Heat in Ceiling wiring? Try being creative about the ceiling j box. How about installing a light fixture, smoke dector, CO2 dector, in the spot where you need to splice the heating cable. Just make sure that the j box is big enough to handle all the wires per NEC 314.16.

Carry On!

CE1,

Yep, still trying to figure it out. That is a good suggestion. Is there a copy of the NEC on-line somewhere. I had no luck finding one.

I usually do as CE1 has suggested and add a smoke detector to the room. Most places I work on don't have smokes and it doesn't have near the "afterthought look" so it's a win-win for the homeowner.

No there is not. I do not have the software version but there will be somebody arriving shortly that will. Hang in there.

Yes there is.
Go to:

..click on: "I agree", then on the next page click on: "Open National Electric Code Softbound...."

You are permitted to use a listed NM connector such as the one at Menards.com
https://www.menards.com/main/electri...4445332929.htm
They are UL Listed for splicing romex, without a box, either exposed or concealed, and permitted by the National Electrical Code 334.40(B).

Re: NEC And Splicing Wiring


Everything I've read tells me it's legal. I know a lot of double-wide mobile homes use them to span circuits from one half to the other.

Would I use one? Only if that's the last option available. I wound never routinely install them. Exception to that would be for wiring installed in sacrificial walls installed in a flood plain.

So..... how old does a thread have to be before we're not allowed to answer questions in it?

Re: NEC And Splicing Wiring


I decided to join this site because time and time again when I googled something, this site had the answer. When I saw this thread today I knew that the next time I was at Menard's I would be buying a couple of splice kits so the next time I sawzall through a wire I can repair it easily.

Thank goodness for the 13 year old threads!
