    Concealing a JB exceptions?

    With respect to NEC 314.29, is there a way to conceal a junction box if it doesn't contain a splice? Or is there a product that can make a junction box be considered a raceway? I've seen those plastic sleeves that can guide a wire through a JB when pulling, but something along those lines?

    314.29 Boxes, Conduit Bodies, and Handhole Enclosures
    to Be Accessible. Boxes, conduit bodies, and handhole
    enclosures shall be installed so that the wiring contained
    in them can be rendered accessible without removing
    any part of the building or, in underground circuits, without
    excavating sidewalks, paving, earth, or other substance that
    is to be used to establish the finished grade.

    Exception: Listed boxes and handhole enclosures shall be
    permitted where covered by gravel, light aggregate, or noncohesive
    granulated soil if their location is effectively identified
    and accessible for excavation.

      I'm trying to abandon a junction box which will now be concealed. It has to do with being in a masonry wall is why it's a pita

        Remove the box and replace it with a section of the same raceway type.
