As above, so below....


I'm putting in the new flooring under the panel today, so I need to know what I need to add to the hole in the 3/4" plywood flooring to run the wiring through?
Do I need a plastic anti-friction ring glued in, does it need to be fire caulked, etc. 3 or 4 wires will come from below. The rest will drop from above. I KNOW I need the fire caulk there.... anything else I should be checking for as well?
Just want to CMA.... Po)

Holes bored in wood do not need any protection.

If you are going to do a hard angle on the wire after the hole, you might want to chamfer the hole so there isn't a sharp edge to abrade the wire.
