It presents accepted industrial practices for the application of sheet metal lagging to industrial duct, pipe, tanks, boilers, furnaces and other accessories.

Architects and designers are encouraged to use this invaluable resource to assure that their specifications reflect professionally vetted design details. This completely revised publication contains the most comprehensive set of recommended practices available for proper design and installation of custom-fabricated architectural sheet metal including roof drainage system design for scuppers, gutters and downspouts.

As alternatives to table use, the publication has a manual calculation procedure using equations and fully developed examples, and offers optional calculation software. Technical Inquiry 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.

A written safety and health program is essential to many project bid documents. Session highlights the considerations in specifying and installing fire dampers, smoke dampers, combination ffree and smoke dampers and ceiling dampers in HVAC systems.

New to the publication are design considerations for free standing stacks under resonant vibration, established limits on stacks fitted with testing platforms, larger stack selection diameters, and consideration of custom designed smacns systems instead of a standardized schedule.

The page book is an authoritative resource that design engineers, industrial engineering smavna, pollution control authorities, FRP manufacturers, and installation contractors can use for the proper selection, manufacture, and installation of FRP duct systems.

Guide for Free-Standing Steel Stack Construction Contractors, designers, and engineers will find this guide a very valuable resource, as tables containing hundreds of stacks are detailed and ready to go. 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. Reprint of Ed.

Also covered are forced air heating, heat pumps, automatic control thermostats, flues and sound and vibration. Thermoplastic Duct PVC Construction Manual Contains the latest and most useful information from manufacturers, fabricators, and corrosion specialists on the use and application of thermoplastic materials.


In addition to generic detail drawings, design data and the appendixes will help users adapt the drawings to local climate and project conditions. It includes example projects, tables, references, resources, and checklists. Items of special interest include performance contracting, CFC refrigeration regulation, and new automation system open protocols.

In addition, variable frequency drives, direct digital control systems, lab hood exhaust balancing and the latest balancing equipment and procedures are presented. 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.

With the long-term rising cost of fossil fuels, reducing the energy consumption of HVAC systems is increasingly important. Sections include load calculations, duct design, duct construction, insulation, vents, air terminals, control applications, system specifications and other updated industry equipment and methods for residential systems. The program helps designers of air pollution control and industrial ventilation systems in selecting reinforcement alternatives in all areas of industrial duct manufacturing.

It is a practical how-to guide for contractors, owners and engineers interested in learning about commissioning for new buildings and recommissioning for existing buildings. This is the second session in a three part series.

Contractors interested 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. Other chapters include guidelines for developing welding procedures, controlling weld quality, estimating, hiring and training welders and welder certification pages.
