Caddy Pyramid Equipment Supports: Innovative Support for Rooftop Systems

SOLON, Ohio  – CADDY® PYRAMID Equipment Supports offer a fast, flexible method for supporting chillers, air conditioners and other heavy-duty mechanical services on rooftop surfaces. The system contains post-base assemblies, equipment-support clamps and a frame, and it can be assembled and adjusted to size and height in minutes by one person with one tool. And, unlike traditional methods, this system features a hot-dip galvanized finish for superior corrosion protection.

The innovative design of the thermoplastic base evenly distributes the load to help prevent damage to the roof membrane. The crossbar and equipment support clamps help ensure a quick and easy assembly. Once assembled, the support can be lifted as one unit and easily relocated.

CADDY PYRAMID Equipment Supports, part of the CADDY® line of fasteners and supports from ERICO, are available with 4- or 6-post base configurations. The system supports green building requirements; the bases are made from recycled material and can contribute to earning LEED credit.
