2.5 Ton Chain Hoist "I" beam runway (single)

Would like to know proper installation. Was advised to weld tabs to roof steel beams (3 different beams). Would installer need to be certified? also, was thinking that it would be better bolted and then welded. We have had earthquakes in area. I know about the test requirements. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Make sure that mountings, either welded or bolted are properly analyzed especially based on seismic zone.

Lindapter makes some nice structural clamps that might work well.

Design should be reviewed by an SE
