Cable Strapping and Wiring Methods


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

How to Strap Electrical Wire and Cable: As the cable passes through holes in the framing it does not need to be supported, only as the cable runs parallel with the framing will the strapping be required.

Installing and Strapping Electrical Wire

Electrical Question: When strapping wire it must be strapped every 4 feet or so and withing 1 foot of boxes, but do I need to strap it at 4 foot intervals as it runs through the holes in the studs?

This electrical wiring question came from: Janice, a Homeowner from Duluth, MN.
