Out-of-Sight Fire Hazard: Abandoned Cables And Wires

From The June 2006 issue of Maintenance Solutions Magazine. The resource on institutional and commercial facilities management.

By James Piper.

Depending on the size, use and age of a typical institutional or commercial facility today, it can include thousands or even tens of thousands of feet of cable. And a good percentage of that cable has been abandoned. Lift any acoustical ceiling panel or inspect any riser system or telecommunications closet, and the chances are very good that abandoned cables — lots of abandoned cables — will turn up.
