Overhead Equipment Anchorage

Various Locations

MHP has provided the structural design of custom supports and bracing for ceiling and wall mounted medical equipment and components to be placed in imaging rooms, operating rooms, and exam and patient rooms.  In many cases, supplemental tube steel beams, hangers, and steel angles were designed to support and brace heavy ceiling mounted equipment with critical seismic deflection limitations. Several designs involved providing cage systems to support extremely heavy and/or multiple pieces of equipment such as the digital Neuro Imaging and Cardiac Cath Lab Rooms, with ceiling mounted equipment weighing more than 2,500 lbs. Where cage systems were utilized, the design allowed for other trades (mechanical, electrical, etc.) to install their equipment with limited interference. OSHPD is the main jurisdiction for these projects; however MHP has also done numerous projects with city jurisdiction for medical office buildings.
