ROOFTOP EQUIPMENT ATTACHMENT

ABSTRACT

Without proper attachment, rooftop equipment can become displaced during wind and seismic events. Displaced rooftop equipment can puncture and tear roof membranes allowing water direct access into buildings, causing interior finish damage, operational outages, loss of stored product and proliferation of biological growth. The likelihood of fire is increased if rooftop-mounted equipment, tethered by electrical or gas lines, becomes damaged from movement. Displaced rooftop equipment can also be blown from a roof and injure people on the ground below. This paper will discuss the code-related requirements for rooftop equipment attachment and review historical and current practices.
