Question Fans in tiling

I am looking to install ceiling fans in all of my bedrooms. I have a problem though. My entire second floor has drop ceilings. How am I to support the fans I am going to put in. Some of the fans fall in the center of a tile, while others fall directly on the support beams. If anyone knows how to get fans hang on that stuff, please let me know. Thanks.

Easiest way is to use threaded 3/8" threaded rod going from the fan rated box up to the house framing. They make a screw that has a wood lag thread on one end and a 3/8's machine screw thread on the other. If the Box falls in between the framing just add some 2x's to bridge it

There is an electrical outlet box designed specificly for hung/droped ceilings.The box is fixed to a bar that clamps to the "T" rails and the box position is adjustable.I advise you to submit this question to the "Electrical" section of the Forum-Good Luck!!!
