    Supporting fire alarm cable to existing fire alarm conduit

    Is it acceptable to support Plenum rated fire alarm cable to an existing dedicated for alarm conduit?

    No. 760.46 references 300.11 and 300.11(C) says raceways cannot be used to support cables.

    Power-limited fire alarm circuit conductors shall not be strapped, taped, or attached by any means to the exterior of any conduit or other raceway as a means of support.
