Hi

I looked all over the code book but i couldnt find anything on loomex being in wiremold. I was just curious if anyone knows if there is a code about running 14/2 loomex in wiremold? Or does it have to be thnn wires? Im installing new lights and getting power from a plug. But the owner doesnt want to rip out the dry wall to add the power so i decided to use wiremold.

Thank you

You can't strip the wires out of romex and use them but using the complete cable should not be an issue.

Years ago I had a electrical inspector tell me I could not run Romex in wire mold. But more recently I have read on here that it is ok. Personally, my feeling is to run the THNN and know that it will pass muster

With some of the wire mold profiles, I would question if you can meet the bending radius with nm-b cable (US Romex) when going thru elbows/Tees.

I don't know the min bending radius on NMD90 (Canadian "Romex"/Loomex), but would still question it.

Using individual conductors, not a problem.
