DOE-STD-1020 - Outdoor HVAC Equipment

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Need to provide wind-borne debris protection for existing outdoor HVAC equipment.  Protection is to be in accordance with DOE-STD-1020 which is pretty stringent:   15 pound 2x4 at 50 mph.

 

I've seen a test report for 3/4" 9 gauge expanded metal for ASTM E1966 - 9 pound 2x4 at 34 mph.   But that testing obviously falls short of the DOE-STD-120.

 

Has anyone worked on a project that required the DOE-STD-1020 (or similar) compliance?  If so, how was the HVAC equipment protected?

 

Thanks,

David Finley
