RectorSeal, Houston, has introduced the ArmorPad, an equipment mounting pad product line for residential and light commercial air conditioning condensers.

The ArmorPad is constructed of a dense foam core base enveloped in a shell of polymer on five sides that simulates the texture and color of gray concrete. The entire product line of 24-, 30-, 32-, 36-, and 40-inch-square by 3-inch-high models saves jobsite costs, because only one person is needed to transport and install it. For example, a 36-inch-square x 3-inch-high ArmorPad weighs 8 pounds.

ArmorPads also surpass durability tests, which prove the weight of a truck driving over it can’t crush it; drilling into it can’t crumble or crack the polymer shell; landscaping implements can’t spall the surface; and equipment weight of even the largest of residential condensers can’t indent or depress it.

The ArmorPad polymer shell is not sprayed on, but rather molded into a one-piece extrusion that’s compliant with ASTM D-2299 standard “Recommended Practice for Determining Relative Stain Resistance of Plastics.” The polymer surface perpetuates a new appearance because of its built-in resistance to UV degradation, coil cleaning chemicals, landscaping chemicals, weather and canine urine.

The ArmorPad also boasts a dense foam core, which minimizes permanent compression damage and holds anchors. The foam core bottom also features a foil-backing that resists moisture and an embedded chemical repellent that deters burrowing animals and insects.

Other ArmorPad features include:

  • Design and performance-tested in the field with contractor focus groups.
  • Designed for 90-percent of the industry’s condenser sizes of up to five-ton systems. Additional size introductions are planned in the future.
  • Ideal for retrofits where condenser replacements require a larger or new equipment mounting pad.
  • Can be secured onto and cantilevered out over smaller, but structurally-sound existing pads during retrofits.
  • Accepts and holds drilled-in hurricane clip anchors in high wind zones.
  • Available through most traditional wholesale HVAC/R distributors.
