    Sleeve Setting

    What would be the best way/procedure to set these sleeves in poured concrete slab? They are going in a telecom closet? Thank you!

    Unistrut supported to the for work or set on the metal decking. Depending on the construction type.

    Some people are like slinkies. They serve absolutely no useful purpose. But still put a smile on your face when pushed down a flight of stairs.

    Drill the decking and support them with strut laid flat on it.

    The space between them needs to be at least 3x the size of the largest aggregate. Did the architects allow for that?

    If it's metal deck then are you drilling a hole in the metal for each sleeve?

    Typically these areas of the deck are designed to accommodate what is shown in the detail.

    Yes, if there's a metal deck are you drilling a hole in the metal to allow the sleeve to penetrate to the ceiling below or are they leaving a big open slot to accommodate the sleeves?
