Metal Conduit in wall?


I'm putting a kitchen counter against an existing wall. It has 3/4" thick furring strips on a block wall. In order to run new wire behind the drywall can I run these thru metal conduit instead of building out the wall?

You can use conduit with the proper boxes.

You can also run your cables like in this thread.

1.5" deep wall can I use BX??

Metal Conduit in wall?


Your dwg brings up one more question. I dug into the NEC code a little bit and I saw something in 300.4 (d). It appears to me that I might even be able to use NM cable(no conduit) fished in the wall, as long as I place the plates over the grooves in the strips and maintain the locations per your dwg. Is that possible?

Thanks for all the help.
