If you have to mount equipment to a commercial roof, there’s a right way and a wrong way. The wrong way also happens to be the most common way, and that’s to set the unit on either wood or rubber supports and trust it to stay in place under its own weight. That method poses safety and waterproofing risks.
Then there’s the right way. Platform and supports, especially for large or heavy equipment, should be mounted with roof penetrating attachments. Right now you’re probably saying “are these guys crazy? Why would I want to penetrate my roof?" Well, we’re not crazy. Click the icons below to learn more about why we say this.
