[End users never, I say never cease to amaze me.

I feel your pain.  I can remember back in the days of floppy disks, one of my guys finding the KSU back up disk under a desk leg to level it.

All I can say is wow...

 This install was actually done by the company that I used to work for… And at this point it's a good thing I'm not still there when this kind of work is being done. We are doing the firewall and wireless for this client, and they are doing phone system.

Thanks,

Tony it looks like they almost considered a plan in the beginning and then just said to heck with it.   :011:

Personally I don't like my guys running the bundle next to the AC current either unless there is a reason they just have to.

That's the least of the problems. Why didn't they just cover the door up and be done with it?  :019:

I haven't looked at the NEC code lately, but I think the clearance on the side of that main service panel is no close to none existent to the low voltage stuff.

Are you sure the particleboard doesn't stop at the edge of the wall or am I just seeing an optical illusion.

I think it does but it's too close anyway- along with that patch panel. Gonna get whacked for sure.

Edit- Just looked at it again and now I don't know. Sure looks that way doesn't it?

The particleboard looks to overlap the doorframe.

Too funny to see this when I check back... LOL

It's went from "the low voltage by the AC is a no-no", to a "this is an MC Escher backboard installer".

:D

More reasons I love this place!

The real answer - it is an optical illusion, and with my own two eyes I saw the backboard stop before the doorframe. I think it is the white of the gypsum between the end of the board and the frame that is washed out, making it look like it comes together.

Ughhh. Jeff, do you think that was originally supposed to be a drip loop in the Cat 5 cabling?  :011:
