I used to install a lot of very large chandeliers for my former company (500-800 lbs) and since going on my own haven't had to do a really big ass one. But the question I used to always bring up to my old boss was "how do we not need to consult the engineer on this?" I don't feel like ceiling joist are rated for those loads. And specifically when they are hung from the bottom of trusses. I am a little concerned now that its my ass on the line. Anyone consult an engineer on this for structural integrity?
