Re: Smoke-proofing and sound-proofing from neighbours in condo

said by pende_tim:

Just WOW! Does that even meet fire code? I thought that a rated fire wall was required between units? Also thought Canada had a code for sound attenuation between units?

While the Low Voltage box may be letting smoke through, it is also very possible that other electrical boxes are leaking.

There's an RJ11 jack and 2 power outlets on the wall. The 2 power outlets have metal boxes, but I can also detect leakage from the bottom by the molding. So I assume you're totally correct!

As for it being up to code, as far as I can tell it is -- since we have sprinklers, the drywall just needs to be rated for 30 minutes of fire.
The more I C, the less I see.
