Outlet Box Mounting Suggestion

Hi, I work for a newspaper and we're getting in some new processor equipment. Where it's going to be located, they want everything coming up through the floor under the processor, that is...the drain, electrical, water, and air. None of these is a problem. I need a suggestion on how to mount the 4 square box so it's up about 17 inches. Theres no wall to mount the box to. I was thinking of using electrical strut or something like that. Any suggestions? Thanks, Joe

Making a unistrut frame is the best way aside from a solid poured fixture abutment. BUT, since this is a commercial concern, check with a licensed electrician just for liability's sake.

Unistrut in combination with rigid or IMC conduit is generally appropriate for this type of installation.
