Description for DiversiTech UC3232-3

Where local codes supersede the International code and require a pad thicker than 2", the 3" UltraLite is the solution.

Overview

UltraLite® is strengthened by miles of fiber in each square foot of fiber-cement coating. This fiber allows the pad to flex instead of cracking or breaking. The textured surface prevents the condensing unit or portable generator from sliding, and allows water drainage, while the engineered encapsulated polystyrene (EPS) core prevents warping and provides a solid bottom to resist settling. The pad is unaffected by soil conditions, ultraviolet (UV) light, temperature extremes, and other weather conditions.

Features

  • Lightweight - At an average weight of 2-1/2 pounds per square foot (12 kg. per square metre), the UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is one of the lightest equipment mounting products available today. Lightweight products are important for ease of handling on job sites.
  • Durable - The exterior of the UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is specifically engineered for long-term exterior weather resistance.
  • Ductile - The skin and core of the UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is specifically engineered for flexibility and ductility demanded of job site handling. Additionally, the ductility of the outer skin facilitates conformance to slight ground contours without fracture.
  • Time/Labor Savings - Time is money, and hence any time savings on site translates into money saved. The UltraLite lightweight concrete pad literally installs in seconds while providing a solid foundation for the condensing unit.
  • Concrete Surface - The concrete external skin of the UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is not subject to ultraviolet degradation or weathering discoloration.
  • Vibration Absorbing - The engineered polystyrene core in the UltraLite lightweight concrete pad absorbs and dampens vibration associated with normal operation of a condensing unit.
  • Freeze/Thaw Resistant - The UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is vapor permeable. Water vapor evaporates through the pad, hence the concrete outer skin is not subject to expansion cracks.
  • Flame Resistant - The concrete outer skin of the UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is resistant to heating caused by the compressor. Additionally, the surface is resistant to heat from incidental torch flame during site installation.
  • Outside Storage - The UltraLite lightweight concrete pad is intended for life in the outdoors. As such, the pad is suitable for exterior storage prior to site installation.
Technical Data

LOADING
To achieve the maximum permissible pad load capacity, the earth under the pad must be capable of supporting the transmitted compression load of the UltraLite pad. All values tabulated assume the earth has a bearing capacity of at least 1000 pounds per square foot (48 kPa).

The allowable loads assume a uniformly distributed loading on the pad surface (that is, a relatively flat-bottomed condenser unit in contact with the pad). For condenser units with footpads or other point loads, the maximum concentrated load for any size UltraLite pad is 125 pounds per 2" (56 kg per 50 mm) diameter (or equivalent surface area) footpad.

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
In normal usage conditions an equipment pad can be exposed to a variety of chemicals. The UltraLite pad has been fully tested in accordance with ASTM D2299 for resistance against:
  • R-22 and R-134a
  • Compressor oil
  • Salt solution, 20 percent by volume
  • Synthetic canine urine
The UltraLite pad performs extraordinarily well under these testing criteria. UltraLite does not craze, soften, delaminate, or spall under exposure in these tests.

FREEZE/THAW TESTING
The UltraLite pad has been independently tested to the rigorous freeze-thaw regimen specified by ASTM C67. This standard dictates a twenty-five cycle freeze-thaw sequence. The freeze portion of the sequence takes place with the top surface of the UltraLite pad under 1/2" (12 mm) of water. Once twenty-five cycles are complete, the pad is examined using visual magnification. No cracks or crazing is permitted. UltraLite has performed flawlessly.

                          I bought this to support the outside unit of a mini split unit. Even thought I did use it I dont think it is really needed with a mini split compressor rated under 18000 BTU. A set of four padio blocks would be just as good.

                            Q:

                            can this pad be anchored to and existing concrete slab, or does it have to just lay on top of slab with out being anchored down?

                              You could anchor it to an existing concrete slab, but it's not worth the
                              effort, IMO. I'd say just lay it on top.

                              Before I answer the question I would like you to know that pads provide flat and level surface to mount condensing units over soil. It sounds like you want to mount your unit over concrete slab, so you already have a flat level surface – sounds like you don’t need a pad at all.
                              To answer your question, yes you should anchor the pad to the slab, otherwise it will move due to vibration and put strain on the refrigerant lines – last thing you want to happen.
                              PS, I am not a licensed refrigeration professional, I gave my opinion based on experience and common sense.

                              This is an awesome product but we did not use it in the way you suggest.  We
                              placed crushed limestone on the ground and anchored a whole house generator to
                              the pad.  Our airconditioning unit is also secured in that way.  We are in
                              tornado alley and had an EF 5 hit within 300 yards and everything remained 
                              anchored.  That said, I think you could drill thru the pad and anchor directly
                              to the slab with concrete anchor bolts.  Don't have experience using it that
                              way, but I think this should work.  Hope that helps>

                              I've had two of my mini-split heat pumps leveled on pressure treated wood
                              which sits on blacktop. They're fastened to the wood but nothing is
                              fastened to the pavement. My guess is that a pad can sit on pavement
                              unattached provide they not likely to be disturbed. Seems to work okay for
                              over a year now but I considered fastening them to the pavement with some
                              anchor bolts in case they bumped into hard enough to threaten the line
                              attachments. I also have one on a pad resting on bare ground. No problems
                              so far.

                              I think that a good construction should do the trick.
                              Keep in mind that this should also be “level” when you.re doing it
