Fire, Smoke and Radiation Damper Installation Guide For HVAC Systems An application and installation study guide for architects, engineers, code officials, manufacturers and contractors outlining their respective responsibilities mandated by the model codes.

Assists the designer, contractor and code officials in understanding the complexities of designing, installing, constructing and balancing both the exhaust and make-up air systems required in commercial kitchen ventilation. It reviews materials and reinforcement of duct systems, as well as assembly and supports of ducts. The program helps designers of air pollution control and industrial ventilation systems in selecting reinforcement alternatives in all areas of industrial duct manufacturing.

Also included is an appendix that provides application details for the seismic bracing of food service equipment. Any further use in part or in whole requires permission.

Technical Resources

A thorough explanation of recommissioning leads one through the preliminary investigation, survey and documentation phase, the design and installation of system modifications, and the actual recommissioning test. Also available in metric. In considering such requests, SMACNA will not review or judge products or components as being in compliance with the document or publication. Mznual gives guidance in understanding these synthetic materials, as well as assistance in determining their strengths, corrosion resistance and advantages over other materials.

A tutorial on air and hydronic systems ftee well as equipment performance and operation, this comprehensive text covers motor operation, fan curves, pump curves and fluid flow losses in ducts, fittings, pipes and air terminals.

SMACNA Technical Manuals

In addition to the basic engineering guidelines for the sizing of HVAC ductwork systems, the manual also provides related information on materials, methods of construction, economics of duct systems, duct system layout, pressure losses, fan selection, duct leakage, acoustic considerations, and Testing, Adjusting and Balancing TAB.

Includes tables, shelves and wall lining details as well as minimum dimension and metal thickness standards for constructing light, medium and heavy-duty kitchen equipment that should provide owners with years of trouble-free usage. Need a leg up on the competition? Methods discussed include using building systems automation, envelope improvements, mamual demand control strategies including thermal energy storage.


In addition, variable frequency drives, direct digital control systems, lab hood exhaust balancing and the latest balancing equipment and procedures are presented. Variable air volume, multi-zone, dual duct and exhaust air smacnz are examples of the systems specifically covered and time-saving forms are included for precise record keeping during the conduct of a TAB project. Technical standards and manuals developed by SMACNA members have worldwide acceptance by the construction and code community, as well as local and national government agencies.

It is an updated product that provides a source vree the labor units data required to fabricate and install HVAC materials and equipment. Separate chapters are devoted to the different levels of commissioning, including basic, comprehensive and critical system commissioning. Another section is on heating and ventilating systems including gravity furnaces.

With the long-term rising cost of fossil fuels, reducing the energy samcna of HVAC systems is increasingly important. The Guideline covers how to manage the source of air pollutants, control measures, quality control and documentation, communication with occupants. Also covered are forced air heating, heat pumps, automatic control thermostats, flues and sound and vibration.

Includes general as well as specific guidance for both air-and water-side HVAC system adjusting and balancing. This new publication updates the Guide for Steel Stack Construction, second edition, incorporating text and tables. Presents practical troubleshooting and corrective tips for typical problems of roof panels, gutters, downspouts, fascia, copings, flashing, ridges and hips, valleys, expansion joints, penetrations, fasteners and soldering.

Assists TAB technicians with preplanning and establishing teams so that energy use is minimized whether the work is done in new or existing buildings. You smana a complimentary copy of the fi nal report and a company performance review for your effort. Contractors maanual in new opportunities will find market entry guidance and ideas to assist them in the development of new business strategies that target the renovation of existing buildings.

Offers new construction techniques and alternative methods of design and installation reflecting climatic conditions and rainfall rates.

Basic formulas used in the industry for recovering shop burden costs make this guide a real gem. These drawings illustrate the best practices in custom architectural sheet metal work. Also includes chapters on industrial applications, material properties, hangers and supports, fittings, vents, doors, discharge ducts small stacks and surface preparation of metals.

They address all facets of the business, from duct construction and installation to indoor air quality and air pollution control, from energy recovery to roofing. SMACNA standards and manuals address all facets of the sheet metal and HVAC industry — including duct construction and installation, indoor air dree, energy recovery, roofing and architectural sheet metal, welding, and commissioning.


Applies to commercial, industrial and residential buildings. It also includes sample reports and timesaving pre-start and start-up checklists. Includes wind uplift pressure test reports confirming superior performance of custom-fabricated metal roofing. Energy Systems Analysis and Management Manual. This is the second session in a three part series. Methods to identify and remediate lead, asbestos, or other materials that are classified as hazardous materials are not intended to be within the scope of this standard.

Covers the fundamentals of space condition requirements and explains how the various types of air, hydronic and refrigeration HVAC system designs can be applied to buildings.

The request must pertain to a specifically identified portion of a SMACNA technical document that does not involve published text which already provides the requested information.

Make a Technical Inquiry. Accepted Industry Practices for Sheet Metal Lagging Providing numerous examples of sheet metal lagging applications, this publication assists the designer, contractor and plant engineer in understanding and solving the complexities frree in the design, fabrication and installation of sheet metal lagging systems. Use of these tested and proven sample forms and specification will save smcna of valuable time.

Understanding the Basics is a comprehensive non-technical manual written to provide an overview of HVAC systems and can be used for self-study, group training, or reference.

Also covers details for connections to equipment and air terminals, hanger schedules, reinforcement requirements, fabrication of rectangular duct and fittings, closures of seams and joints, channel and tie rod reinforcements, plus hangers and supports.

It presents accepted industrial practices for the application of sheet metal lagging to industrial duct, pipe, tanks, boilers, furnaces and other accessories. Provides guidance for HVAC system selection, operation, and design.

A written safety and health program is essential to many project bid documents. Covers fire dampers, breakaway connections, combination fire and smoke dampers, framing of structural openings, contract plan marking, installation instructions and special applications. The manual shows how very low- and very high-risk areas of the country can be accommodated. SMACNA develops and publishes more than 30 technical documents with more being added to the library each year and several in review and revision cycles.
