Hey folks,

Shooting in an office this weekend and we're hanging Par Cans from the ceiling. Unfortunately, there are no beams to use a clamp and the walls are too far apart to use a wallspreader. So I'm going to drill plates with studs into the ceiling. Paranoid about two things...

Par Cans can get hot, but there are sprinklers about 5 feet from where I want to place the lights, so I think I won't flood the place. But I am worried about drilling into any plumping or wiring, not that the screws I'd use would be that long.

Any hints on making sure I don't drill into something stupid?

Thanks!
Greg
