Hello all, new to the forum, looking for advice on a specific problem. Basically how to pass a conduit through a plywood wall. But maybe I'm going about it the wrong way.
I am installing some new data cable in a home office that shares a wall with a garage. I want to put in some conduit while I'm there so that future upgrades will be easier (maybe going from UTP to fiber in the future etc). The problem is I need to enter the wall space from the garage side, from surface mount boxes. The office side will have recessed boxes. The garage side of the wall is plywood and the office side of the wall is drywall.
So I'm wondering if I can pass flexible conduit directly through the plywood wall of the garage through a hole elongated vertically? I don't see another way to do it since coming out the back of the surface mount box through the plywood perpendicularly will not allow enough room for the conduit to make the 90 degree turn (2x4 studs and 6" min radius for the flex conduit).
Here is a sketch of what I mean:
Would this be okay? If so what is the terminology for this kind of arrangement?
Thanks in advance!
