I'm running led strip lighting, on a hallway floor, for accent lighting. The floors are Warmboard subfloors, which house radient pex tube.
Here is the Problem:
When running the 18 awg cl2 wire, the wire comes up 1/2' away from the pex tube. The water in the pex tube can get as hot as 140 - 180 deg Fahrenheit.
- Is there a concern of running this 18 awg cl2 wire so close to the pex tube?
- If it is a concern, is there any protective jacket, one that can be applied to the wire, to protect it from the heat?
