metal sheathing


A section of wiring is traveling through a wall that is shared with another property. Can I run just that section of the wiring through a metal casing tube. Can I purchase empty metal casing and run the wire through it?

Yes you can buy flex metal conduit -- Greenfield. Or use type AC or MC metal sheath cable. (Commonly called BX.)

What is the wiring for?

Low or High voltage?

I'm not knowing of boca or whatever is out there, but what is the problem with wiring in a shared wall?

If it is a problem, how would chasing it thru greenfield correct it.
"IF" it where an issue, sounds that it should be relocated.
