- Can't use plastic gang boxes as a built-in power strip (maybe if it were a metal gang box?) Looks like we'll be needing to purchase and install off-the-shelf power strips.
- Cables need to be suspended using their own supports. You can't touch anything used to support other components of the structure (like hanging tiles). Thus, our split PVC channels which supported the cables had to go.
My goal is to find inexpensive solutions even though the district has offered to put special electricity outlets into some of the rooms. I don't want this approach--I'm looking for the low-impact solution, one that can be done inexpensively in many rooms.
On Friday, my wife and I removed all the wiring that Fred, Alberto and I had so carefully installed. Oh well, 3 steps forward and 2 backward...I connected the 3 tables on one edge of the room in preparation with the talk with the Facilities Director on Monday as hopefully a launching pad to an acceptable solution. It's not ideal from a teacher's point of view as I may discuss later if this solution becomes accepted. But, I think it is workable. I'll post more as I learn more.
