Whether you are installing HVAC in a newly constructed building or changing out an old system, you will need to purchase high quality roof equipment.
If you are running a job in the Midwest and need a quality roof curb or curb adapter, Madon Sheet metal can quickly provide you with products that are expertly fabricated and easy to install.
When do I need to purchase a curb?
When a new building is constructed, before a HVAC Rooftop Unit (RTU) can be installed, the roof must be cut so that the RTU can tie into the ductwork and air can circulate through the building. Sheet metal workers must install a roof curb above the hole.
The roof curb is a metal structure that is fabricated by sheet metal workers. The roof curb is specifically designed for the RTU to sit on. It must support the heavy weight of the RTU. Sheet metal workers must install the curb so that they can connect the supply and return ductwork to the RTU. Installers run the duct work up to the curb’s opening, secure the ductwork in place, and seal the connection to prevent air leakage.
Any error in the curb layout can impact the efficiency of the entire HVAC system. Purchasing a curb from Madon Sheet Metal, a fabricator that specializes in welding, ensures that you will have a quality curb that is properly designed.
What is a curb adapter?
All RTUs eventually need to be replaced. However, in the majority of cases, the new unit will not fit the existing curb size and duct drop locations.
Rather than installing a new curb and transitioning all of the supply and return ductwork, contractors can usually save a lot of money and time by installing a curb adapter.
Experienced fabricators at Madon Sheet Metal custom design curb adapter to connect the new RTU’s layout with the old RTU’s curb. Therefore, the original curb can remain connected to the building. Curb adapters must be custom designed and fabricated to ensure that air can efficiently move from the new RTU to the old openings.
