Could your next project benefit from the superior air movement provided by a high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan? HVLS fans have been demonstrated to cut winter energy use by 30 percent in a wide variety of facilities.
Driwall™ Rainscreen UV is a 10-mm (0.4-in.) thick, randomly oriented geometric-patterned high-performance drainage and ventilation mat. It is designed to provide a 10-mm cavity with long-term ultraviolet (UV) resistance.
Covertech’s BIG 8 reflective duct insulation increases system efficiency and lowers stress on HVAC equipment, while reducing energy usage and utility bills. Specially designed to reduce radiant heat gain or loss, it helps control condensation by providing an airtight thermal break around the ductwork.
The durability of cold-formed steel (CFS) framing depends greatly on its ability to resist corrosion. In extensive testing of the corrosion resistance of ClarkDietrich’s DiamondPlus® Coating, as compared to standard G40 steel, the results are clear.
For more than 40 years, Serapid has been specializing in horizontal and vertical motion through use of Rigid Chain Technology (RCT). The rigid chain is a telescopic mechanical actuator that is flexible in one direction and rigid, like a steel beam, in the other. RCT systems are able to push and pull structures weighing in excess of 200 tons, and lift in excess of 300 tons.
Floor-warming systems have recently become very popular as a way to make tiled floors even more desirable. Frequent fluctuations in floor temperature create greater movement stresses in the floor assembly, increasing the need for an effective uncoupling system.
Why specify high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans for your next project? Cooling and comfort are just the beginning. Operating at an optimized low speed, large HVLS fans pull air from above and push it down in a conical shape to the floor below—moving the most air over the largest area at the lowest cost.
CEMCO specifically developed its new RC1-X as an option for other typical resilient channels in wall and ceiling applications for both wood and steel framing. The company has tested and confirmed the product’s sound transmission class (STC) ratings meet or exceed other high-end sound abatement channels.
ARCAT offers a wide variety of tools from which the architectural/engineering/construction community benefits. Its extensive and up-to-date specification library includes five essential tools a design/construction professional needs.
