OUTLINE OF INVESTIGATION FOR COMPOSITE PANELS
|Publication Date:||29 November 2011|
This Outline covers factory-built panel assemblies for use within or as part of the structure of buildings for commercial, industrial and residential use. These assemblies incorporate pre-installed branch circuit electrical power distribution systems which are usually concealed and may not be accessible for inspection at the installation site. Some panels incorporate audio, lighting, ventilation fans and other utilization equipment.
The panel systems are evaluated only for installation in ordinary locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. Special Occupancies as specified in ANSI/NFPA 70 are not addressed by these requirements.
Composite panel assemblies covered by this outline are intended to be installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, where the acceptability of the field assembled panel system is determined by the Authority Having Jurisdiction.
The surface flammability or fire resistance of the panel or panel system is not covered by this outline except as related to the individual requirements of the electrical components used within the system.
