    Roof curb adapter.

    This what happens when your salesperson has no field experience. These curb adapters were made locally by a metal shop, instead of getting them from a roof curb specialist. These wonders are 54" high. Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1405612038979.jpg

    Reminds me of one that we did at my last company, it was cross the street from town hall. They made us move it 20' cross the roof, and rooftop duct to the penetrations so that it wasn't visible from anywhere on the ground, salesman lost his ass on that one.

    I have a few of those. Goodman machines replaced the old Yorks. IMHO, it would have made more sense to turn the new machines, but it was not my call.

    Why bother with curb adapters? I just install the same brand RTU, if the unit doesn't match up, we install a new curb, and have it roofed in.

    I had to have one of those made, unit was too close to a sloped portion of the roof. had no choice but to raise the unit up 4 feet to make it so the large physical size unit would not touch the shingled roof adjacent to it. (customer was changing 12 units and wanted all same units) It was actually really easy for me to work on. i could stand on the shingled roof and was above the condensers.

    This is a curb manufactured by a supposed AAON approved vendor from what I was told when I questioned it. Compressors and control access is on the slope side.

    Looks a bit extreme to me, regardless of the "approved vendor" moniker.
