Enhancements for Curbs and Curb Adapters
Curbco offers various standalone enhancements to improve system performance and extend lifespan.
Vib-Iso Rail System
The VIB-ISO RAIL (VIR) system is designed to sit between an existing roof curb and curb mounted piece of equipment. The VIR is designed to reduce the vibration from a curb mounted piece of equipment to the building structure. Along with reducing the vibration from the roof-top-unit, the VIR also acts as a seismic and wind restraint to keep the unit attached to the roof curb. Each VIR system will be engineered to match the roof-top-unit and meet any customer requirements. The VIR system is available in either 1” or 2”deflection depending on the customer’s requirements. The VIR system is shipped nearly fully assembled with the springs and restraints installed at the factory to reduce onsite labor. On site, the VIR design allows for quick assembly requiring only basic tools to install it to the existing roof curb.
Hurricane Clips serve as an extra measure of protection against hurricane force winds. These clips secure the RTU to the curb to avoid costly damage and repair were the unit to shift during a weather event. Hurricane clips also serve to protect the people and equipment inside a building should winds be sufficient to move the unit off of the curb, where it could fall through the roof structure.
Gaskets serve to provide a water-tight seal at the bottom of the curb adapter where is connects to existing curb, and at the top where the HVAC unit rests. Extra gasket material for custom jobs or to replace weathered material is available.
