This question may sound a little confusing but I will try. I did an inspection of new detached garage wiring built under NEC2008 codes. There were two circuits, one went to the readily accessible receptacles and the other went to the automatic garage door openers that were also GFCI protected fropm receptacles mounted in the 10’ ceiling. In this case, there was no service door or windows in the garage.
Looking at 210.8, there is no mention about readily accessible receptacles. However, if the GFCI for the garage door would trip for whatever reason there would be no access to the interior of the garage since the doors would not open.
I know there are some exceptions for receptacles that are not readily accessible. Does this apply to this situation for the garage door openers?
