3502i ceiling pole mounting options?

I've got a number of 3502i's that I need to mount in a new classroom that does not have any ceiling (except the floor decking above).  Ceiling is roughly 30-50' up.  Contractors are going to run several 2" (or whatever we want) metal pipes from the ceiling down to a more reasonable level to mount the access points on and get below the hvac ducts/etc in the ceiling. 

Problem is I can't find any bracket or mounting options for this!  What are others using in this situation for mounting one of these access points onto a metal pipe such as this?  I've checked Oberon Wireless, Terrawave and I don't see anything glancing through the product catalogs.  Anyone mounting access points this way?

This is one way. They run a conduit from a double gain box mounted up in the ceiling. The conduit should be mounted to that box with a break away connection just in case. Then at the end on the conduit you place another double gain box and the universal ap mounting bracket will have mountain holes to match up with the double gain box. The regular ap mounting bracket does not have the correct holes unless you drill it out.

This is the bracket. You also can go with a smaller OD conduit and run the cable inside.

Try to ensure you keep your copper run to below 100 metres.

And please get the ethernet cables tested (4-pair TDR) before the contractors leave.

Agreed, drop poles if this was the only AP I had to work with..
