Saving Money is as Easy as the Alphabet – or more specifically, the letter “H” for Rooftop H-Stand Supports

When it comes to rooftop HVAC supports, many Mechanical/HVAC Project Managers are faced with a common dilemma: purchase prefabricated supports or fabricate them in-house (or at the job site). If the only thing being considered is material cost, it might look like in-house fabrication is the answer. However, after factoring in design time, labor time, laborers and tool costs this equation may work itself out quite differently. In most cases, purchasing modular, prefabricated rooftop H-Stand supports will turn out to be the better option.
