Solution for cable tray and pipelines with restricted ceiling and wall fastening
Sandwich panels have shown their worth in roof and wall areas in industrial and cold storage due to the low installation effort required and their good insulating properties. They were also used in the construction of a new production facility and warehouse for UD Chemie in Wörrstadt. Along with the trapezoidal sheet ceiling used, however, the panels were a challenge in relation to fixing the cable tray and heating pipes.
Building type: Hall construction
Requirements: restricted ceiling and wall fastening
For the fastening process, the MÜPRO application engineers therefore came up with a construction of MPC-support channels with an appropriately dimensioned load capacity. The support channel construction was anchored to concrete columns and T-supports on the end faces and intersections at a height of nine metres. This enabled spans of 5.5 metres to be bridged.
Support channel construction
To fasten the cable tray and heating pipes, two MPC-support channels with H-profiles now run parallel to the wall and are connected vertically by means of shorter MPC-support channels. The cable tray lies on MPC wall hangers attached to the vertical MPC-support channels. In the support channel section beneath the cable tray, the vertical support channels also serve as a base for fastening of the heating pipes.
Fastening to T support
The H-profiles are fixed to the T-support either directly via girder cleats, or, in the case of a greater distance between the H-profile and the T-support, via MPC wall hangers fixed to the T-support at right angles to the H-profiles with girder cleats.
Anchoring in concrete column
The H-profiles are securely connected to another vertical MPC support channel at one end via construction brackets. This in turn is fixed to a concrete column by means of a heavy-duty anchor BZ.
Additional stability and optimal load distribution are ensured using threaded rods fixed with turnbuckles between T-supports or the MPC support channel anchored in the concrete and the H-profiles.
Planning and design
The responsible MÜPRO customer consultant provided ongoing expert advice on site from the planning stage through to implementation of the fastening solution. The technical development and design of the installation was carried out by the MÜPRO application engineers. With MPC support channels and accessories, it was therefore possible to meet all the requirements in relation to fastening and loads. This project also demonstrated the benefits of the modular approach, which offers a wide range of solutions for individual requirements.
