Old work Carlon Blue Box in new construction
A pendant light fell from the ceiling with the Blue Carlon old work box still attached. The plastic flanges had broken. The box was mounted in a four inch circular cutout in the ceiling.My question is :
1 why use Old Work boxes in new construction?
2. Is it code to use this type of box in the ceiling?
3. Is it code to hang pendant lights from this type of box?
The house is brand newconstruction…6 months
