    T/R receptacles

    Are T/R receptacles required in commercial buisness space?

    More specifically the following:

    Individual offices
    Conference rooms
    Bathrooms

    Thanks

    (1) Dwelling units in all areas specified in 210.52 and 550.13
    (2) Guest rooms and guest suites of hotels and motels
    (3) Child care facilities
    (4) Preschools and elementary education facilities
    (5) Business offices, corridors, waiting rooms and the like in clinics, medical and dental offices and outpatient facilities

      Funny how they include preschools, elementary education facilities and dormitories but leave out high schools and colleges. 406.12 is an example of the dumbest thinking I have ever seen. If we are so concerned about our little snowflakes just require all straight blade receptacles to be TR and be done with it! You never know when somebodies kid is going to crawl around a dentist's office or skating rink and stick a paper clip into a receptacle. Can't be too careful can we.

        The 2020 NEC 406.12 is expanding into more areas and now including 250 Volt receptacles. A catch-all phrase "common areas" is newly added to (1) and (2). (8) is new. (5) is unchanged except for the expansion in the main rule to include 250 Volt.:
