I am starting work on the design of an optical fixture that is going to be around 5m high, with a mass of hundreds of kilograms, perhaps in the low thousands. I have a requirement for part of this to be 300mm thick, although I can mess with the configuration of the base. Probably, I can put anchor studs in the floor.
My ideal case is that this thing will sit on the floor of the lab, held in place by gravity.
Is there a formal standard somewhere on tipping hazards, specifying the base configuration, and/or tie-downs?
