The following pictures show well done and well supported conduit racks from recent and ongoing jobs. Special thanks to Derek Pasch, Staffing Specialist at Meisner Electric in Delray Beach, FL for the pictures. Note how nice a pipe rack run at a 45* angle to the building can look. I know most people want to "square" everything to the building's walls, but this work looks great run at angles.

Ahhh man I thought there would be some boobs posted in this thread....
Oh well, I get nearly as excited looking at electrical rooms.

The bottom pic of the big pipe I like.
The other's I see lots of pipe which is nice, but I see lots of overlapping pipe from the same rack which is ugly. 5' kicks, which should be 90's(how do even measure for a kick that big, before getting so creative just get a new idea), and spare pipes with no supports.

In part it looks like the electrical room was their ending point instead of the starting point.

Oh and the pic of the trapeze with two 3 inchers could be ditched

Looks great. Reminds me of the time we built the Aventura Mall down there. We did several of the high rise condos too.

Yea, I was expecting tits or a buck when I read the thread title.
My best friend worked there for years. I know that mall real well. I spend a lot to time down there.
I think the work looks great...how can anyone say otherwise...?

pipes should run square to the building, running at a 45 blocks any kind of passage-way if you need to sneak another in for some reason at the end of a job, i can understand pre-form 90's, but couplings 12 inches apart? come on... 2 3 inchers need to be on 1 5/8" strut in my opinion... those giant kicks need to be back to backs, if they're there to reduce bends, install a large j box. all this is my opinion, not that i know everything or have years of experience under my belt. other than than that, there's some good work in there, i just would have done it a little different.
