- Isolation that will work in conjunction with internal vibration isolation to reduce the rooftop casing radiated noise.
- Fiberglass media will maintain consistent isolation characteristics over a wide temperature range versus natural rubber, neoprene, or other elastomeric pads.
- Easy to install for new or retrofit applications.
Kinetics KIP-RT fiberglass pads are used to control vibration that is being transmitted from rooftop equipment. KIP-RT is 1.75" wide x 48" long and is installed between roof mounted equipment and the supporting curb.
Rooftop Fiberglass Pad
KIP-RT fiberglass noise, shock, and vibration isolators offer many advantages versus natural rubber, neoprene, or other elastomeric pads. Uniquely permanent and dynamically predictable, due to precise manufacturing methods using inorganic materials, this isolation media provides freedom of design and use unprecedented by any other material.
KIP isolator is a high-density matrix of compressed molded fiberglass; individually coated with a flexible, moisture impervious elastomeric membrane, designed to allow controlled air movement in the fiber media. The pumping action of air between fibers provides viscous damping, reducing motion caused by transient shock and vibration.
KIP fiberglass is non-corrosive, non-combustible, non-absorbent, and resists rust, ozone, mildew and fungus. It is vermin proof, will not shrink, swell, or decompose. Isolation characteristics of the media are constant over a temperature range of -40°F to 250°F (-40°C to 121°C).
