Rod Stiffener Pre-Analysis

Every project is unique, so don’t settle for a standard “one size fits all” solution because, chances are, it won’t provide the optimal solution.

The RS Pre-Analysis tool calculates with precision which suspended equipment needs rod stiffeners and which don’t.

Using project specific information, we can provide a custom solution that is tailored to you and will optimize the contractor’s
labor savings.

HOW DOES IT HELP THE CONTRACTOR?

Labor Avoidance: Contractor doesn’t have to install brackets

Passing Risk: Vibro-Acoustics provides a stamped calculation and assumes the risk
