Installation to Concrete Ceilings
• When installing ceiling mounts on concrete, verify that you have a minimum of 1 5/8" of actual concrete surface in the
1/4" diameter hole to be used for the concrete anchors. Do not drill into mortar joints! Concrete must meet ASTM C-90
specifications.
• Concrete must be 2000 psi density minimum. Lighter density concrete may not hold concrete anchor.
• Make sure that the supporting surface will safely support the combined load of the equipment and all attached hard-
ware and components.
• Never exceed the Maximum Load Capacity of 50 lb (22.7 kg).
ACC 203 (Alligator
concrete anchors) are recommended.

1
Drill two 1/4" (6 mm) dia. holes to a minimum depth of
2.5" (64 mm). Attach ceiling plate (G) using two
concrete anchors and #14 x 2.5" wood screws (F) as
shown in Illustration A and 1, 2, and 3 (below).
Tighten all fasteners.
IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of the installer
to verify that the ceiling will safely support the
combined load of all attached hardware and
components.
WARNING
• Tighten wood screws so that ceiling is firmly attached,
but do not overtighten. Overtightening can damage the
screws, greatly reducing their holding power.
• Never tighten in excess of 80 in • lb (9 N.M.).
• Make sure that mounting screws are anchored into the
center of the studs. The use of an "edge to edge" stud
finder is highly recommended.
