You are correct y7turbo, and they are an excellent customer, they asked our opinion, and I told them they should either get the installing contractor to put them on the ground correctly installed, or we would be glad to do it.Quote:
I recognize a couple stickers on those units that tell what store they are for.
Its a shame that store has those units installed like that, they are a good customer and pay for everything to get it fixed right.

This is certainly not the type of installation they usually have on new store buildouts.
Unreal, even if they are still temporary. Someone could have came up with a better plan than that!!
Hey Outcast, where in Somerset is this? I will be in town in a few days and would like to see this mess with my own 4 eyes
Just as bad as some at a Dollartree store in Miami, Ok. I'll have to find the pic. At least those had a platform to stand on.
So if a kid goes on top of the unit to repair condenser fan motor and falls off, gets killed.
Its only temporary?
WOW... words fail me.
It would've taken less effort to put them on ground, build a cage and install bollards in front of them. Much safer and cheaper to service in the long run.
Its only due to the fact that those units are new do those pics look good. Otherwise, the potential liability of someone getting hurt, or even killed, would make one believe that this is the most unsafe install ever seen. I don't care who I work for, I would not even consider working on those units. Too much to consider: wood deteriorating, vehicle slamming into a support, slip and fall, drop a tool on someone, disconnect location, etc. Add a ladder and the potential increases! At least they have a "safety chain" on edge of platform (I guess that satisfied the local inspector.) Would not fly at all in these parts.
