Rooftop seismic package
“More and more building owners and engineers must comply with special seismic requirements for equipment as well as for the building itself,” stated Greg Alcorn, vice president, commercial sales and marketing, Carrier Residential and Commercial Systems. “With our special seismic certification package, they can be assured that our equipment has been validated by an independent third party, and therefore does not require additional testing at the jobsite.”
John Mix, product manager, light commercial rooftops, Carrier Residential and Commercial Systems added, “The special seismic-compliant package on the WeatherMaker rooftop line is one more innovative option that we offer to improve performance and reliability. Our WeatherMaker rooftops meet virtually any light commercial application need, making them the perfect solution for energy retrofits, upgrades or new installations.”
Carrier equipment with the optional, installed seismic package meets current International Building Code, California Building Code and ASCE 7 seismic qualification requirements in concurrence with ICC ES AC156 Acceptance Criteria for Seismic Qualification by Shake Table Testing of Nonstructural Components and Systems.
