Rooftop pipe support

This UV-rated rooftop pipe support has a 4-in. x 5-in. footprint and weighs less than 1/3 lb. Its sled-design distributes the load evenly, protects the roof membrane, and holds three ½-in., two ¾-in., or one 1-in. pipes or conduit. The support can be bonded to the roof or float with pipe expansion and contraction, and an integral pipe-clamping mechanism ratchets down to securely clamp pipes or can be set for loose guiding to accommodate for thermal changes. They’re available in 4-in. and 6-in. high models.

Available in two versions, the Surge3 surge protection device (SPD) protects complex, digital technology in five nanoseconds. Both the MOV and diode versions are interchangeable with a plug-in suppressor and common base mount, and they use computer-matched, high-power diodes in an advanced diode array, which allows for low clamping with high surge current ratings. The 120V model has a current rating of 4kA and voltage protection level of 292V peak. The SPD system is color-coded, and all suppressors and bases are labeled with specific voltage colors.
