Code Requirements for finger-safe Conductor Rail

    Code Requirements for "finger-safe" Conductor Rail

    I'm planning to install conductor rails about 7ft above the floor in an astronomical observatory. The rails are IP2 "finger safe" rated. Where should I look to determine if this is sufficient enough for conductor rails which will be within reach to some of those visiting the observatory? There has to be a document somewhere stating the electrical code and showing me if IP2 is acceptable right?

    Here is info on the rails:

    Installed in North Carolina

    Thanks everyone,
