Anchoring ceiling grids to concrete
We recently installed a ceiling grid for a simulation lab at the Cleveland Clinic. This new training area was designed with an exposed ceiling grid for overhead medical equipment. Because the ceiling was constructed using post-tension concrete slabs, we had to locate the cables prior to installing the ceiling grid. Our installers used a Hilti PS 30 Ferrodetector to locate the cables and rebar in the concrete. We then used Hilti KB-TZ Anchors to secure the Unistrut to the concrete. The 18' x 20' grid was constructed from Unistrut P10001, P1028, and P1036. The grid was also painted white to give the room a clean, contemporary look and feel. This seemingly simple project presented "hidden challenges" that weren't visible to the eye. Unistrut Service Company's winning combination of quality Unistrut and Hilti products and our team of highly skilled design engineers and installers ensured the success of this installation. Does your project require a ceiling grid, or do you have more questions about securing anchors in post-tension concrete? We welcome your challenge.
