    Hello fellow installers.

    I have just been to see a potential customer who works out of an industrial unit. Now the external of the building has steel cladding or as some call it corrugated sheet metal. Now I plan on installing some Hikvision bullet cameras on the external, and have never mounted on this kind of material before so I have a few questions.

    1) what is the best way to mount the cameras for example self taping screws or alternative?

    2) What is the best drill bit to use to drill through into the building so i can pull the RG59 cable through.

    Andy other advice would be highly appreciated.

    Regards

    Most of these metal clad units have an outer and inner skin with insulation sandwiched in the middle. I normally drill the outer skin with a hole saw, clear the insulation out of the way with a screwdriver and then drill through the inner skin with hole saw and a hole saw extension bar. I then use snap in bushes. For fixings I drill a 13mm hole where needed and use snap toggles in the cavity.

    Those snap toggles seem amazing does it still work as good if it isn't on plasterboard?

    Those little Hick cams weigh nothing, I'd self tap it and drill the hole (probably 25-32mm for the pre mounded RJ45) and place the base over the hole. All you will see is the camera with no holes in sight.
