PROJECT AT A GLANCEClient: Berchtold Corporation
In an effort to thoroughly serve their clients, Berchtold embarked on the development of a universal support for their medical fixtures. Berenyi was asked to be a part of the team. The structural department performed finite element modeling of the fixture and in-situ testing of prototype supports. The specifications of the fixture were to limit the deflected slope of the fixture mounting plate to 0.1 degrees while keeping a design that is both modular and unobtrusive in the ceiling space of the medical room. The models and field tests meet these specifications.
