    There's a some Juliat WW LED fixtures for sale used, and the price ($350) seems good...

    I need a bit of stage lighting for a temporary HoW in a gym. I thought these might fit, and if a soccer ball whacks one, I wouldn't be out much.

    Anyone got any knowledge about these fixtures?


    Oh, remind me what's the best way to hang a light from unistrut.

    @Chris Pflieger Normal strut and how deep or strut with slotted holes through the back?

    I would say normal unistruts (what else is there?). It's slotted, as that's how it's mounted to threaded rod from the ceiling.

    @Chris Pflieger Unistrust (In the U.S.) and Cantruss (In Canada) are manufactured in a variety of profiles, thicknesses and both solid and slotted. One of the bonuses of slotted is you can bolt clear through with machine screws, carriage bolts and / or all thread rod. Options: Assuming your struts profile is large enough you could bring a 1/2 x 13 hex head bolt through the slots with heavy gauge fender washers for additional strength and lock the bolt in place with a 1/2 x13 nylock nut then add a hex nut on your exposed excess bolt plus flat washers above and below your fixture and come up from the exposed end with a second nylock hex nut to secure your fixture in position. There have been several threads here on the Control Booth forum regarding purchasing or creating your own strut bolts rather than relying on traditional strut nuts. If you've something against strut bolts some manufacturers also market strut nuts which click in place within the strut and maintain their position while you're assembling your loose bolts into them rather than falling over or out like the normal spring loaded strut nuts so often do. Clear as mud, right?
    Toodleoo!

    Seconding this. We purchased some of these (instead of spring-loaded strut nuts we used in the past) for a show this fall in our black box, and they worked very well. Our only regret is that we didn't get enough for all of the fixtures.
