Let's Look at your Project

Cable Organizing and Removal

Abandoned Communications Cable is defined by the National Electric Code {NEC} Article 800.2 as the following; Installed communications cable that is not terminated at both ends with a connector or other equipment and not identified for future use with a tag. The code was put in place due to increased hazards of unused cable that acts as an accelerant and adds fuel to fires in ceilings, walls or ventilation systems.

Large amounts of abandoned cable have been left behind in buildings in past years from decades of occupancy. As per the 2002 NEC, building owners are responsible for abandoned communications cable removal upon vacancy of tenants. The building owner can hold the tenant responsible for the cable removal and cost by agreement prior to lease signing and move-in. If no removal agreement is made the landlord will have the sole responsibility.

Abandoned cable removal can be a difficult and confusing task since there can be a great variety and type of cabling left behind in walls and ceilings over many years of occupancy. All Wiring Needs has over 20 years experience in structured cabling and can efficiently determine what is abandoned and remove all necessary cable and components from any vacated premise.
