Experienced craftsmen can and have adequately braced piping and ductwork before, using a canned detail from SMACNA, and there is certainly no problem with this. However, with today’s current mechanical specification requirements, the contractor is often required to submit professional anchorage calculations and layout for ductwork and piping restraint, as well as for equipment anchorage. And these calculations and layouts typically have to be performed and stamped by a professional engineer. Vemco and Mason Industries can provide these services for your project, as well as proving the service of reviewing your installations with you, prior to the first hanger being installed. In this way, you can be assured that your systems are restrained properly, while at the same time minimizing cost and “headaches” for you. By reviewing the layout prior to installation, we can offer advice and assistance in minimizing restraint requirements per IBC.
