    I don't think the got away with anything worth discussing.

    You are welcome to think that, but cite a code section. A ceiling wire is far more flexible than a conduit and the code specifically allows them when installed independent of the ceiling grid.

    I know what I don't know, and I know where to go to find it!

    40' ceilings

    We have 40' ceilings but we ran our strut racks at 23' so the top of any machine is no more than 19' unsupported.

    As for how they get away with it, no inspections after power panels in allot of large plants that are self insured.
    A cowboy may get thrown , but they always get up and walk forward.
