comment Can I hang a heavy weight from a concrete ceiling if I reinforce it with fiberglass?
I'm starting to get the idea that this won't work in the manner I had envisioned. Would there be any alternative ways to still anchor the load to the ceiling? i.e. fixing a 2x4 with several expansion bolts + epoxy and then using that as an anchor to help distribute the load etc. (moderators: not sure if this constitutes a new question or not. Please let me know if I'm posting in the wrong place)

Thanks Alex. I had considered that as well. This is the product I was considering using:ramset.com.au/Product/Detail/82/DynaBolt-Plus-Sleeve-Anchors It has these specs: Max Tensile 2.7kN -16.6kN Max Shear 2.5kN - 15.6kN
