To guard against mechanical injury and the destructive action of cement, all floor conduits shall be made of double tube, one telescoped within the other, and both the outer and inner tubes joined in the usual manner. The outer tube shall, in the case of contact with cement, be alkali proof. As a further protection, floor tubes shall be covered during construction with a light board. Such other precautions shall be taken to insure the safety of the tubes as the character of the building and work require.
