Fire Rated cat5 Connections

Got a question for you network guys out there. If I am putting a box into a fire rated wall (cutting a huge hole in a wall and replacing it with metal) and want to bring in a cat5 signal into that box, does anyone know where I can find either connections, or a semi-wall plate, or something that will bring in the signal while still maintaining a fire rating? Iím guessing this would be the same as if there was a cat5 wall connection in a fire rated wall like a regular outlet. Anyone have any suggestions of what to search for or a company that sells something that would work in this application?

Thanks!

Adam

Try monoprice.com they carry fire rates cables might have something for you there. Not sure tho why you would run low voltage to a metal casing unless you haw somehog else going on there

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Yeah, the metal box is a housing, and there will be power going in there too. The network cable is just the last part I can't seem to find any info on right now.

Why would you put is in the same box according to code if I am not mistaken you can not nor should run Ethernet or low voltage with in 6 inch of electric. I just have a union electrician working on power in attic and I asked about the in wall Ethernet and that's the jist of what he told me. So I ran Ethernet to a separate cut and hole and called it a day.

I'm not as concerned about the wiring as that will be the responsibility of the installer. I was just thinking there has to be something that the "outside of box" cable can connect to, some sort of waterproof/fireproof connector, so that the box will maintain the fire rating.

You're thinking too small :-) Plus, I'm looking for commercial fire ratings, not worrying about in house signal interference.

Still think there is code for commercial to tho I can't help solving the mounting issue

I'm thinking if there is a short in the electric wires, it will ground into the network wires (if they were damaged)
