Photo of the Week: Splice Box Maintenance

Wire Splices are a common point of failure that that can be prevented by annual inspections. Inspecting all raceway enclosures for water intrusion, debris, and proper terminations. Splices should be spaced and secured to prevent expansion/contraction wear and tear. Wear proper PPE and keep an ABC fire extinguisher within arm’s reach when opening an enclosure as a faulty splice can ignite once exposed to air.
