A Pipe Grid is perfect for lower ceiling heights and a cost effective way to add versatility to a production studio, TV and News studio or any space where the ability to hang and rearrange lighting equipment is required.
The standard pipe grid consists of 1-1/2″ or 48 mm steel batten crossing at right angles overlaid in a 4 foot x 4 foot matrix. The upper level battens run in one direction and are suspended from the building structure. The lower level battens are clamped perpendicular to the upper battens.
Suspension methods vary depend on the overhead structure. The basic hanging assemblies, one for attachment to a steel I-beam, the other for attachment to a concrete ceiling. These pipe grids can be suspended with cable, chain or threaded rod.
