ARTICLE 360. FLEXIBLE METALLIC TUBING: TYPE FMT
ARTICLE 360. FLEXIBLE METALLIC TUBING: TYPE FMT360.2. Definition.‚ÄÉThis section defines this NEC raceway. The rule indicates that flexible metallic tubing is a raceway. Use of that term makes clear that all rules applying to "raceways" within the Code apply to Type FMT as well. The rule further indicates that flexible metallic tubing is intended for use where "not subject to physical damage" and gives use above suspended ceilings as an example. Although this wording does not limit its use to air-handling ceilings, it does raise some questions for electrical inspectors with respect to accepting flexible metallic tubing as a general-purpose raceway.
