One of the critical uses for ventilation equipment is the movement of potentially explosive gases. Engineers and designers who specify these systems must exercise caution when selecting equipment to ensure continuous and safe system operation. This whitepaper helps develop an understanding of spark
resistant construction SRC) and reviews the types of products available for these applications.
After an earthquake or seismic event, buildings containing essential services must be able to remain operational. Seismic certification of HVAC equipment provides assurance that the equipment will not only survive the earthquake, it will remain online and functional. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows consulting and specifying engineers to meet the strictest seismic building codes, quickly and easily, without the delays of additional certification testing. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows building owners to protect their investment.
