Pull elbows or LB's, LL's, RL's, etc.

Does any one know if a pull elbow can be enclosed in an interior residential wall?

Yes, I know and the answer is no. All pull-points must remain accessible.

I had to look that one up a while ago. We had a secure network room. The conduit entered a j-box or panel through an LB. I don't know why they didn't just bend the pipe The powers that be did not like having a removable cover in a secure area, fearing covert placement of eavesdropping devices. It was suggested to weld the cover, but the electrician said it wasn't code.

I initially thought that only junction boxes (splices) had to be accessible, but the answer is in article 314.<mumble> and it covers j-boxes and pull points.
