As in vastly growing trend of insurance policies some go ahead and bear the extra cost to install plenum wires over non-plenum .this is mostly with projects of building schools and hospitals due to no of people they contain. On the other hand non-plenum cables well serves its purpose when it comes to short term projects and where less number of people are present .warehouses ,distribution center’s leans towards non-plenum cable mainly because of structural setup.
