A: Due to the design, the box can be as close as 3/8” from the joist. If the desire is to have the box as close to the joist as possible, you should consider our 294 fan box kit.
A: If you're able to attach a box to the side of the joist, don't use this brace/box. Get one that can be attached directly to the side of a joist. Or move your fan/light location over to directly over top of the joist and use a pancake box.
A: The electrical box itself can move left or right then be tightened
A: I haven’t opened the box yet so I can’t answer it properly. But I would go to Home Depot and measure to top of brace. Your I beam has a purchase of 1 1/2”. So if brace is more then 1 1/4” I wouldn’t recommend . You can always contact the manufacuter
A: Our 937 fan box support was designed to be used with engineered joists.
A: The fan box is intended for use with ½” drywall, but can be used with 5/8” as well.
A: No, it is placed between the rafters in the ceiling joist. You do have to cut a hole in the drywall to install it in the ceiling.
A: As I recall, the opening should be 4 inches, as the arms of this pan will fit up into a hole this large. We had a ceiling fan mounted so we simply left the hole we had from a light fixture, and it worked fine. I hope you have success with your project!
A: 4". A 4" hole saw is very handy.
A: 4 inch round, Just the size of the box. You first install the bracket without the round box by turning it to secure to beams in the ceiling, then attach round box in opening. Very easy to install, you can also youtube video.
