As for the plans: Likely, the sockets in that room are not on separate circuits. That's pretty rare in modern construction (bean counters + profit margins= minimum code. Only unless you pay extra. With commercial rental properties, that's even less likely unless they were designed for industrial applications). Often times, you'll see a daisy chained set of sockets off of the same circuit leg unless you designated it in the plans to be on separate legs yourself, unfortunately. Like I said earlier though, the wiring on the Belkin is more than capable of holding up it's end of the bargain safely. That, you don't have to worry about.
Whether the contractor that built the building, or the inspector that passed the building was shady, is an entirely different matter. Most unfortunate, is that both of those occurrences are becoming ever more prevalent in the construction market over the past 30 years. I wish I could be more positive on that note, but of what I've personally run across over a span of more than a "few buildings", that's just not realistic of me to do.
On the up side, it's not exactly difficult to drop a second leg yourself & upgrade the breaker itself with the breaker box so close to your office, if you find your setup tripping breakers.
No love for my mad oc'ing TF3 results...
Actually the previous tenant had his own power brought into the room, big hole in the wall where he had his own breaker panel lol. He was running servers in here. The building is a multi story post office, built in like the 50's.. so really who knows what the wiring job is like or if they updated it since. Also I checked the breaker panel, it seems my room and the next room over share power, that room is empty though. So I may just be on a single 15A circuit sadly. Maybe I can convince the neighboring office to send me an extension cord through this side door
Thanks for the info anyway, I guess if I'm on a sincle circuit I don't even really need to bother moving devices around... we'll see I guess.
