    So this is sort of an auxiliary gutter so that the NM does not have to come through the back of a surface mounted panel enclosure?

    And these were in electrical? Not some other dept and sparkles were just using them?

    All products I find are proper gutters/troughs.

    I knew right off what he was talking about but never saw one or knew something like that exists. I'm with the others, I can't see how it's legal and that's probably why we never heard of it.

    Looks like a POCO type thing to me.

    Like the flanged PVC raceways you see going up/down poles with service conductors.

    These boxes are created to cover wires like this at the bottom of a panel. I agree the code seems sketchy but our AHJ is no pushover on inspections
