Seicon ØVIB HVAC Isolator Rails can be installed in many different ways to fit the design of the condenser that is being used, as shown above. For these situations:
- Vertical flow condenser units and heat pumps: two isolators are typically used for these installations, but for larger or heavier units, three or more isolators can be used.
- Horizontal flow condenser units and heat pumps: two isolators are typically used in these installations where the isolator rails are either orthogonal or parallel to the lengthwise axis of the unit. For orthogonal installations, the center of gravity provided by the manufacturer can be used to determine the weight on each isolator. For parallel configurations, the weight on the center of each individual isolator within a rail must be determined to properly configure the rail. The brackets supplied with the isolator rails are not used in these installations.
For more information on the configuration and application of the rail see VibrationBloc HVAC Isolator Rail 101. For installation instructions, see the VibrationBloc HVAC Isolator Rail Installation Guide.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the maximum weight that the VibrationBloc HVAC Isolator Rail can support?
The VibrationBloc HVAC isolator rail is typically used in pairs, and can support up to 450 lbs. in this configuration.
- What are the dimensions of the VibrationBloc HVAC Isolator Rail?
The VibrationBloc HVAC Isolator Rails are 37″ L x 3.5″ W x 2.5″ H, and raise the condenser approximately 2.25″ when installed.
- What is the maximum wind that the HVAC isolators can withstand?
The maximum wind that the isolators can withstand is based upon the surface area that the mounted condenser presents as well as the strength of the isolators themselves and their attachments.
