Wiring run behind shower walls


Is it CEC to have wires running behind the shower walls that run circuits not connected in the shower room

THAT is a great question, I'll be interested in finding the answer to it also. I have run into this many many many times over the years but have never known if it was acceptable by code. Don't know why it wouldn't be but ya never know.

Under the NEC this would be fine. I would like to see the CEC take on this.

I am pretty sure the CEC can allow it as long there is no receptale on otherside of the wall { non shower side }

I know for sure Joed will chime in one way or other so he will comment on that part.

But in France we try to stay away from shower cavity we try not to run any cable or conduit in that area. { we can run above the shower but will have specfic local codes may determed the height plus it have to be on RCD anyway. }

Merci,
Marc
