I'm finishing out a resi garage, with 8' fluorescent pans. The AHJ wants a box in the ceiling, I do not. I'm just pulling the romex though the sheetrock, putting a romex connector on it, and screwing the pan to the ceiling.

No part of the pan would screw to the box anyway. Who is correct?

His claim is someone may pull down the pan, and put in a $2 pull chain lamp holder in the future.

A. Code article please.
B. How about you install a twist lock receptacle up there so that if someone decided to install high bays they would be all set too.
C. I have heard that the building codes in garages are such that you have to make sure everything you do is sealed off and firecaulked. Does he want you to do that?

And someone in the future may wrap a log chain around the light and pull an engine block...:rolleyes:

As already stated... code section please.
