HOUSTON — RectorSeal® Corp., a leading manufacturer and distributor of HVACR products, has introduced a line of Engineered HVACR Products to design professionals through a nationwide network of bid/spec manufacturer’s representatives.

Designated portions of three RectorSeal product lines — Big Foot Systems, SlimDuct, and Aspen Pumps — will be marketed through bid/spec reps in the United States. The brands' more standardized, shelf item products will continue to be sold through traditional HVACR wholesale distribution channels, according to Gerry Spanger, director of HVACR engineered product sales.

RectorSeal obtained the three specialized brands when it acquired the assets of Airtec Products, Fall River, Mass., in 2011. The products offered include:

• Big Foot Systems — Engineered rooftop equipment mounting systems that consist of hot-dipped galvanized modular steel tube frame assemblies supported by glass-filled nylon footings with anti-vibration pads. The mountings support all types and sizes of HVACR equipment, ductwork, piping, and other building services on flat roof applications without roof membrane penetrations.

• SlimDuct RD-Series — A heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant, steel ducting system designed specifically for the protection of the multiple rooftop linesets commonly used for variable refrigerant flow (VRF) multiple zone systems.

• SlimDuct PD-Series — Light-duty, corrosion-resistant, PVC ducting for protecting smaller multiple lineset assemblies utilized in VRF systems as well as commercial and industrial HVAC and refrigeration systems.

• Aspen Pumps — A selection of miniature condensate pumps designed to conform to any application and work with all major brands of VRF and mini-split air conditioners.

In addition, design engineers can also choose products from the complete line of RectorSeal components and accessories for mini-split a/c, including drain hose and fittings, specialized overflow switches, wall sleeves, and condenser mounting brackets.

“Engineers and contractors want prospective customers to see their projects, so it’s in everyone’s best interest to showcase installations that not only meet all the design parameters for performance, but also look professional and aesthetically pleasing,” said Spanger.
