All tubes shall be of sufficient size to allow 132. Sizes of the wires to be readily drawn in, withdrawn and reinserted at will. A quarter-inch tube will be permitted only where space is extremely limited.

133. Clips.

Tubes, whether concealed or on the surface, should be held in place by metal clips; the use of staples for such purpose will not be allowed where it can be avoided.

The tubes shall be cut squarely, reamed out 134. Joints. smoothly, and the ends joined by the use of the coupling designed for that purpose.

135. Ellow Limitations.

Where more than four elbows are unavoidable, an intersection box. shall be inserted to relieve both the wires and the tubes of strain when the wires are being drawn in.

All tubes shall emerge at outlets in termi- 136. Outlets. nal boxes, leaving the outlets so protected as not to be injured by the plasterers.

137. Floor


To guard against mechanical injury and the destructive action of cement, all floor conduits shall be made of double tube, one tele. scoped 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.

128. Separation of Wires.

Each side of circuits carrying more than

ampères shall be run in a separate tube. Wires forming parts of two distinct circuits shall in no case be inclosed in the same tube.
