Conduit:

In the event the system is to be installed in a building with a plenum ceiling, the buyer agrees to pay the added cost of using Teflon or code approved cable if such provision is not clearly stated as part of the agreed system configuration.  The requirement or non-requirement of Teflon cable is defined by Minnesota Fire Safety codes.
