Posted By Topic: Flex in fixed wirring

Oct 23 2019 17:14

Hey guys,

It came up in conversation today about using flexible cables such as extension cords in fixed wiring eg Plugs lights etc. I had a quick look in the regs couldn't see anything prohibiting it. Anyway aware of any regs against it.

I am aware it is terrible practice and the color of the conductors wouldn't be ideal but just curious.

sometimes flex is exactly the right practice.
