Another thing to consider with uni-strut: If you mount a piece horizontally like shown, now mount a piece vertically to the original strut, and you have spaced the mounting point out another 1" (or more, depending on the low or high profile strut you use.)
Electricians will often hang a couple of pieces of uni-strut from the rafters in one direction, and then hang a second set of uni-strut underneath from the first set at 90 degree angle. This gives the electrician complete adjustability in two directions. The struts are hanging often from all thread, supporting electrical conduit (or plumbers, piping). Works great in an environment where the mounting point is not in motion, like most buildings. Of course, I doubt any of this meets California building codes, since your buildings do move. Maybe that is why some of you have never seen uni-strut.
