Rails FAQs

An equipment rail is used to offer support to the mechanical unit that is placed on the rooftop.

This is determined by Engineer drawings, the pitch of your roof, the material on your roof, the unit size, and the weight the stand will be supporting.

This is determined by Engineer drawings or a field measurement to ensure accuracy.

Yes, equipment rails are necessary if your unit extends over the curb more than 1/3 of the total length.

Isolation rails are panels that are installed between the roof curb and mechanical equipment, in order to prevent the unit from vibrating the structure and the noise associated with it.

When isolation rails are installed, you will not have noise or vibration issues. By taking the proactive approach rather than risking not hearing rattling noises, you are ensuring there will be no problems.

No, our rails are custom designed and welded and have a weather tight seal; they will not let water or air into your system.

If you choose not to install isolation rails and there are vibration and noise issues, it will be costly in terms of time and money. At this point, you will need to remove the entire unit, rather than if you inserted the rails prior to the HVAC unit installation.
