$15.95

Cloud Hanging, Mounting Plate 

Application
The Star 4" Mounting Plate is used to connect the Adjustable Cable Gripper to a wood cloud-ceiling panel .  The Plate mounts directly to the wood panel with 8 flat head wood screws. The large quantity of screws enables the use of shorter screws, which helps avoid the risk of bubbling or bulging, of the cloud panels. 

Description
The Cloud Hanging mounting plate is manufacture by Star Hanger.  The Plate is of solid 1/4" x 4" x 4" aluminium, with 8 fully counter sunk screw holes, for # 8 flat head screws.  They are finished in gray metallic paint. The hanging eye bolt, is the same Suncor S0319-0702, Heavy Duty Special 1/4" Eye Bolt, used for upper structural connections.  The eye bolt, protrudes slightly thru the back of the aluminum plate, and must be countersunk into the wood cloud panel. 

Strength Testing
Suncor, S0319-0702, Heavy Duty Special 1/4" Eye Bolt, working Load Limit = 100 lbs.


Note: The Mounting Plate connection to the wood panel is the weakest point in the Star Cloud Hanging System.  The plate pullout strength varies with the: screw size, depth, and pilot hole size; also the cable angle, and material type. 

A single # 8 flat head wood screw with 1/2" penetration, a 3/64" pilot hole, and in 45lbs particleboard, fails at about 30 pounds.  With 8 Screws this gives a total pull out of 240lbs. divided by a safety factor of 5 gives a working load limit of 48 pounds per clip.  

Star Hanger Systems recommends the ceiling cloud be made with a plywood core at least 3/4" thick, four cables, a maximum panel weight of 160 pounds with a maximum cable angle of 30º from horizontal. 

Custom Made to order.  Item not kept in stock.
