Inventory the components supplied with your fan. Most kits will come with some style of mounting bracket intended to mount the fan between two ceiling joists. These types of brackets will be of no use on this install. You will need to locate the bracket that would normally be screwed into the electrical junction box in the ceiling. This will now be your main mounting bracket for your fan.

Mark the location for the ceiling fan. Take careful measurements and be certain the fan is in the position you desire. Use the mounting bracket as your guide. Hold the bracket in place against the ceiling and mark the location of each hole. Depending on the bracket, you may have an option of two or four holes. If so, drill all four for added holding power.

Drill the holes using the masonry bit. Be certain to use the correct size bit for the screws you have purchased. You should wear eye protection when drilling, and since you will be drilling overhead, you may want to consider a...

Checking with my engineer-minded girlfriend, we've got too many questions to be able to answer this. The concrete, which is intended to support a dead load, may not be able to support the moment loads that you're planning to put on it. Without having a structural diagram for the entire building and detail on what the beams are intended to do (such as -- are they of a type that is webbing to support a lateral dead load only to hold the walls together? how much load is already on the beam and where? What kind of shape is the concrete in, and how well reinforced is it -- remember it's almost 100 years old!), no one but an engineer could really tell you. Concrete, even reinforced, is a very brittle substance.

You will need to be attached to a structural portion of the structure. In the following picture of an all-concrete warehouse type structure, note that the structure is the columns or piers (vertical elements) and beams (what rides on top of the columns and ties the columns...

From looking around a little more I may have found some options.

Since I don't think a bolt is going to work, maybe an eye lag screw will work. This seems like a simple and inexpensive solution, except for the fact that I'm not sure their weight limits and how secure they are.


I've also found a few ceiling attachments, basically design to support heavy punching bags.

1) ... hment.html

2) ... ments.html (scroll down to the Ceiling hook, and Pro Heavy Duty Ceiling Hook

The first one says it can hang weight up to 150lbs. So I'm assuming if you have a 100 - 150lb heavy bag that is getting beat around, it might be able to hold a persons weight. But then again, maybe not. And I'm mostly interested in the brackets weight limits. I can replace the screws with something stronger, and I can use an eye bolt instead of the...

To take best advantage of every exercise that Gymnastics Rings have to offer, they've got to be mounted up high. Hang your Gymnastic Rings from this ceiling mounted system and you will allow ample head room for the Muscle Up and other movments like Front and Back Levers, Skin the Cat and more.

Although the rings could be mounted temporarily to a Wall or Ceiling Mounted Pullup Bar in a pinch, this separate Gymnastic Ring Hanger allows your Gymnastics Rings to hang in your gym ready to go every time you walk in. And, more importantly, the ring hanger allows for the most headroom when you execute movements like the muscle up.

Simple to install, the gymnastic ring hanger will make a great addition to your gym. And we've designed it from input we received from all of our customers. First, we've spun the strap cleats so that the rings will hang parallel with the body. That's the best position for Muscle Ups, Ring Dips, Ring Push Ups...

Training with rings is an incredibly effective method for building upper body and core strength.

The instability of the rings makes every exercise much more difficult than it would be on a bar. And because of that, working with rings helps many people increase the intensity of their workout in less time than on a stable bar.

But before investing in a set of rings and starting a rings program, there are some things to consider – such as where you’ll hang them, how to use them most effectively, and how much space you need.

Follow these tips and your practice will go that much more smoothly once you’re ready to get started.

Part One – Space Requirements for Your Rings

One of the biggest concerns people have before starting with the rings is how much space they’ll need. Like most things, it depends on what you would like to achieve and how you’ll use them.

When it comes to figuring out how much height you need for your rings, there’s a...

Concrete, like brick and china, is a ceramic material made from processed rocks. It is extremely strong when under compression but much weaker when under tension. The visible surface of a concrete ceiling is the underside, which is the side weakened by tension and thus most likely to suffer cracking if mistreated. Installing hooks into a concrete ceiling is a straightforward process providing that care is taken not to weaken the structure.

Hold the hook against the ceiling in the desired position. Mark the positions of the individual screw holes in the fastening plate, if it has one, or mark the position of the central screw if it's a screw-in hook. Double check the position of the marks before moving to the next step.

Ensure that the electric drill is switched off and not connected to a power supply, then open the chuck using a chuck-key. Insert a masonry bit, of the appropriate size for the attachment holes, tighten the chuck to secure the bit, and then remove the...

Not my expertise either, but having done my fair share of DIY mounting of things, first I would check with the building owner and/or a general contractor first to verify the thickness and internal structure of the concrete (if possible), even given that it must be supporting some tremendous loads already. Better safe than sorry. You may run into some re-bar while drilling, which can be problematic. Safety and overbuilding a bit is especially important for vertical mounting, because a bolt/screw thread failure in that direction is generally sudden and catastrophic


For mounting into the concrete ceiling I'd first mount a 2x6 wood stringer with multiple attachment points (at least 5 per 3 ft of stringer) for some robust concrete anchors (wfs, at least 3/8"x4"). Then lag screw something like this (wfs) at the measured ring centers or rope locations directly into the 2x6. For extra security you might even use lag bolts instead of screws and carefully measure and drill a...

For many admirers of decorative concrete, the best attribute is that each installation is totally unique. Concrete can assume nearly any shape, design, pattern or texture. But the one characteristic that most distinguishes decorative concrete is color (often referred to as colour concrete in Australia and Canada), whether used subtly to blend with nature or boldly to make a dramatic design statement.

Frankly, unless you're a purist and prefer concrete in its plain-gray state, there's no reason not to enhance it with color. The number of different products for coloring concrete has never been greater, and many manufacturers offer an extensive palette of shades to choose from for colored concrete . And although you'll pay more for colored concrete, the amazing transformation will be well worth the investment. In the hands of a creative contractor, these coloring mediums permit an endless array of decorative effects, from rustic earth-toned sidewalks and patios that harmonize...
