I saw these coming home the other day. These were taken at a liquor store near my house. The funny part is once inside I noticed they were in the process of installing security cameras...I wonder how that will turn out. Guess I better hurry up and drink my beer so I can take more pictures huh?

I’m guessing an engine-block heater and laptop per stall, and it was a rush job for Antarctic –30° due any day now.

Not to go off on a tangent, but...

Anyone have a way of anchoring stuff to those sheet metal panels that they're happy with?

Let's see weather proof covers, Check
Plenty of Support for conduit, Check
Weather proof fittings, Check
If this was in the Mojave desert, it might not have any moisture problems.

Yep, Aim for a stud! If not, there's not a whole lot more that self tapping button heads I can imagine...

rhagfo, The Mojave is known for flash floods during certain times of year! [Linked Image] Not to mention the occasional high desert freak snow drop...

Im really curious what the purpose for these are... Vending machines maybe? Install by Pepsi's in-house handyman? [Linked Image]

On sheet metal I'd use two-hole straps with 1/4" bolts with nuts & washers on the back side.

You use #10-12-14 Fastenes on this stuff. Like Randy said, hit the studs.

I agree with the above, you either hit the structure inside or you have trouble with anything more than the smallest raceways and boxes.

In a pinch I have used toggle bolts on this with a fender washer to cover the hole. A little spray paint that is a close match hides the washer pretty well compared to leaving it shiny zinc.

This is a poor option if you can see it from inside the building though. [Linked Image]

If I had to do that job in the picture (with the right boxes) I would probably use at least four #12 fasteners and a full layer of silicone adhesive between the box and the wall.
