Where in NFPA 70 is the requirement for fluorescent light fixtures to be covered?
410.5 requires that no live parts be normally exposed to contact, and UL would require this through the listing process. The fixture is required to be installed in accordance with the listing instructions in accordance with 110.3(B). The listing requirements for a specific location may require the fluorescent lamps to be covered.
Here is a compendium I found of some of the regulations requiring covers over the bulbs:
FDA UL NSF Lamp, FDA Safety Bulbs, Safety Glass Light Bulbs
Thank you to both of you
