Multi Frame

Multi FrameHOUSTON–RectorSeal® LLC, a manufacturer and distributor of quality HVAC/R products, introduces the Multi Frame, a five-SKU packaged approach that simplifies designing, inventorying and assembling Big Foot® Systems’ modular, tubular steel framing mounts for VRF/VRV condensers in U.S. and Canada. The introduction also includes Frame Tech, Big Foot Systems’ new online program that eliminates the guesswork in rooftop equipment support configuration and engineering.

Multi Frame consolidates Big Foot’s previous standard product line from 80+ SKUs to five pre-packaged kits that are ordered through wholesale HVAC distributors. The standard rectangular Multi Frame kit consists of two 40-inch-long (102-cm) end bars, two 48-inch-long (122-cm) cross bars, four leg assemblies with 12-inch-square (30-cm) nylon feet, and two 2-clamp kits for securing the condenser to the frame. Each 40 x 48-inch frame has a 1,200-pound (544-kilograms) total weight capacity that accommodates any VRF/VRV brand and model.

The system accommodates one or two condensers, but is scalable to an infinite number of integrated frames and configurations with the Multi Frame extension kit and the other three supplementary SKUs. Any Multi Frame project can be widened, deepened or lengthened into any conceivable geometrical configuration with an extension kit, which consists of two end bars, two cross bars, two leg assemblies, two tubular steel connectors and one clamp kit.
While the previous Big Foot Systems product line gravitated toward highly-engineered jobs requiring consulting engineer specification, parts selection, Big Foot factory engineering and other tasks, Multi Frame’s five packaged SKUs reduce ordering/shipping time from weeks to just days.

The design-to-assembly process is expedited with Frame Tech, the online tool that leads HVAC wholesalers through user-friendly prompts to design and specify layouts for engineers and contractors. Frame Tech designs and prints out complete specifications including wind load ratings, SKU list for each condenser, configuration diagrams and assembly instructions. Frame Tech accommodates the largest rooftop configurations down to just a Fast Fix stand for a ground-mounted mini-split condenser. The print out is invaluable for consulting engineering verification, building inspectors and onsite assemblers.
The main Multi Frame system can accommodate pitched roofs by adjusting the frame up or down the threaded 12 to 18-inch (30 to 45-cm) legs. Tall legs of 18 to 24-inches (45 to 61-cm) are available for roof pitches or to surpass snow drift codes.

Besides the basic Multi Frame and the extension kit, the other three SKUs are: 1) Multi Frame tall with 18 to 24-inch legs; 2) Multi Frame tall with 18 to 24-inch legs extension kit; and 3) an extra 48-inch cross bar kit (auto-populated during Frame Tech designs) for VRF/VRV brands that require six total mounting rail touchpoints of condenser support.

Other Multi Frame advantages are:
• Price is less than the cost of fabricating labor for an I-beam or lumber mount;
• Also applicable for ground mounting;
• Can be mixed and matched with VRF/VRV and ductless mini-splits, as long as the latter is accommodated with enough venting space;
• Can also be used for other HVAC rooftop equipment.
Big Foot Systems is the only corrosion-resistant, hot-dipped galvanized steel equipment mounting frame that outlasts other steel frame brands and reduces labor versus general construction material gerri rigging. Re-roofing is possible without disassembling HVAC equipment, because roof sections can be replaced under one removed leg at a time.

Rooftop Pipe Support (RPS)

Rooftop Pipe Support (RPS)

HOUSTON–RectorSeal® LLC, Houston, a manufacturer and distributor of quality HVAC/R products, has introduced the Rooftop Pipe Support (RPS), a sturdy, easy-to-install system for presenting an organized, aesthetic alternative to wood blocks and other unprofessional jerry-rigged methods. The RPS is designed for HVAC/R, electrical, plumbing and condensate piping, or ductwork, walkway grates and solar panels on commercial flat roofs.

The RPS is a .15-inch-thick (3.8-mm) ultraviolet light-stabilized, weather-resistant copolymer shell with a high density foam core that provides insulation, vibration isolation and roof membrane protection. The 7.5 (W) x 8 (L) x 5-inch (H) (19 x 20 x 12-cm) RPS weighs only .78-lb (354-grams), but can withstand load capacities of up to 250-lbs or 350-lbs each when used with universal strut channel. The RPS is the industry’s only rooftop support system that has five numbered slots to keep two-inch and smaller pipe aligned and organized during installation, although it can accommodate any size pipe diameter.

The top of the RPS’s 7.5 x 2-inch (19 x 5-cm) shell accommodates multiple pipes and its surface-gripping slots prevent pipe roll and movement during installation. Additional pipe runs can be supported above the shell top via a universal strut channel elevated by 1/2-inch (12-mm) threaded rod. Each RPS has dedicated holes leading to a molded hexagonal receiver for friction-fitting 5/8-inch and 3/4-inch (19-mm) nuts that eliminate the need for a hold-back wrench when fastening threaded rods or bolts.

Each RPS unit includes a 3/4-inch (W) x 9-inch (L) (2 x 22-cm) galvanized perforated strap that secures up to one two-inch-diameter pipe. Multiple pipe runs are limited to only roof space, because each RPS can be interlocked laterally with the shell’s molded tabs that easily snap into a neighboring RPS’ receiver tab.

Other RPS features are:

  • Gives any flat roof piping installation a professional appearance;
  • Withstands temperatures up to 200°F (93°C);
  • Sold in contractor 10-packs;
  • Compatible with most industry roof support and fastening accessories;
  • Top includes starter hole guides for conventional self-tapping screws to secure the perforated strap;
  • Universal strut channel and custom-cut threaded rod can easily provide a pitch required for condensate drain pipe;
  • Supports mounting framework for either hot water and photovoltaic solar panels or walkway grates;
  • Can be used in spacing increments for metal pipe in accordance with ASTM-A53-86, and 2 to 7-foot (60 to 213-cm) increments for PVC;
  • Five-year warranty.

ArmorPad™, High-Strength & Light-Weight

ArmorPad’s light weight requires only one installer to transport; durable polymer shell resists UV, cracking, crumbling and spalling of its cementitious competition.

 

The ArmorPad is constructed of a dense foam core base enveloped in a shell of durable polymer on five sides that aesthetically simulates the texture and color of gray concrete. The entire product line of 24, 30, 32, 36, and 40-inch-square (61, 76, 81, 91, 101-cm2) x 3-inch-high (7.6-cm) models saves jobsite costs, because only one person is needed to transport and install it. For example, a 36-inch-square x 3-inch-high ArmorPad weighs only 8-pounds (3.6-kg) versus competing foam core pads with cementitious shells weighing 35-pounds (15.8-kg), or solid concrete pads weighing more than 300-pounds (136-kg).

ArmorPads also surpass the competition in durability tests, which prove the weight of a truck driving over it can’t crush it, drilling into it can’t crumble or crack the polymer shell, landscaping implements can’t spall the surface, and equipment weight of even the largest of residential condensers can’t indent or depress it.

The ArmorPad polymer shell is not sprayed on, but rather molded into a one-piece, strong and durable extrusion that’s compliant with ASTM D-2299 standard “Recommended Practice for Determining Relative Stain Resistance of Plastics.” The polymer surface perpetuates a brand new appearance, because of its built-in resistance to UV degradation, coil cleaning chemicals, landscaping chemicals, weather and canine urine.

The ArmorPads also boast the industry’s most dense foam core, which minimizes permanent compression damage and holds anchors securely. The foam core bottom also features a unique foil-backing that resists moisture and an embedded chemical repellent that deters burrowing animals and insects.

Other ArmorPad features include:

  • Design and performance-tested in the field with contractor focus groups;
  • Designed for 90-percent of the industry’s condenser sizes of up to five-ton systems. Additional size introductions are planned in the future;
  • Ideal for retrofits where larger, more efficient condenser replacements require a larger or new equipment mounting pad;
  • Can be secured onto and cantilevered out over smaller unsightly, but structurally-sound existing pads during retrofits;
  • Easily accepts and securely holds drilled-in hurricane clip anchors in high wind zones;
  • Available through most traditional wholesale HVAC/R distributors.

RectorSeal® Introduces AC Leak Freeze® Nano PRO, the HVAC Industry’s Only Nano Leak Refrigeration Sealant

AC leak Freeze Nano PROAC Leak Freeze® nano PRO uses revolutionary nano particles that permanently seal nano holes that conventional sealants miss.

Houston–RectorSeal® LLC, a manufacturer of quality HVAC/R products, has introduced AC Leak Freeze® nano PRO, the HVAC industry’s first refrigerant leak sealant designed to permanently repair nano as well as micro-sized leaks in residential and commercial refrigeration and air conditioning systems

It uses the same trusted, OEM-approved formula and quick-installing safe applicator as the original industry-leading AC Leak Freeze PRO, but now includes nano particles. These randomly-shaped particles are designed to stop refrigerant leaks from jagged, irregularly-shaped nano-sized holes that are up to 1,000-times smaller than micro holes, therefore difficult to seal with conventional sealants.

AC Leak Freeze nano Pro is the industry’s only double action sealant: 1) seals leaks in one to six-ton units with an oil-based, polymer-free, 1.5-ounce (44-ml) formula that doesn’t clog system components or refrigeration tools; and 2) uses nano particles to repair holes too small for conventional sealants. Service technicians can add a third action by applying AC Leak Freeze nano PRO with Magic Frost, which includes an anti-friction lubricant additive that reduces noise and vibration, while enhancing system efficiency.

Besides effectiveness, AC Leak Freeze nano PRO is also the HVAC industry’s safest sealant for technicians, refrigeration systems and the environment. The non-toxic formula is non-flammable and has a safer flashpoint rating than competitive sealants and its innovative applicator’s new low loss connection fitting protects technicians’ hands from frost bite and the environment from refrigerant loss. The patent-pending formula doesn’t have moisture-activated polymers that can potentially clog compressors, recovery/evacuation units, Schrader valves, capillary tubes, TXV valves, micro channels or manifold gauges.

Like its predecessor, AC Leak Freeze nano Pro also uses an 8.5-inch-long (203-mm) applicator consisting of a flexible, easy-to-handle, transparent nylon refrigeration hose and an attached copper reservoir of sealant. Unlike some other disposable leak sealant applicators, AC Leak Freeze nano Pro doesn’t require a system pump down with R-410A systems and safely withstands all typical refrigerant pressures.

One side of the hose connects to the refrigeration system’s low side. The AC Leak Freeze nano PRO formula is propelled into the system within seconds once the hose’s reservoir is connected to either the high side or a refrigerant cylinder via a charging manifold. The disposable, one-time-use applicator’s nylon hose, brass fittings and copper reservoir are all 100-percent recyclable.
Other AC Leak Freeze Pro features are:

  • hose and reservoir are factory-sealed to prevent injecting air or atmospheric moisture into the system;
  • the flexible nylon hose’s 45-degree connection fitting allows easier hand access than straight fittings in cramped Schrader valve environments;
  • transparent hose eliminates guess work as to when application is completed;
  • comes in four-color boxed packaging designed for distributor J-hook merchandisers or in 12-unit compact POP counter display cases.
