Accessible (Wires)

Wires are accessible if they can be exposed without removing or damaging permanent parts of the building and if a person can reach them for inspection, repair, or maintenance. Examples: wires are accessible if they are behind suspended ceiling panels, or if access requires opening a door, removing an access panel, or climbing a ladder. Wires are not accessible if you must cut drywall to expose the wires or if they are located in an area that cannot be reached for repair, inspection, or maintenance.
