    Take a close look at 547.1 along with parts (A)& (B). Then, as AD suggested, talk with your local inspector. Your building may not fit the definition.

    Cow,

    Do you have a Fluke 1507 insulation tester? The Ohm range on that seems to be pretty good.

    The real problem you have is which testing equipment and what procedure will the MFG accept. ...

    We have been in places where space is the only insulation left. Rats chew thru the wire as well, if the CB trips.

    Try a vacancy sensor. You manually turn the lights ON but it times to OFF after no motion is detected.
