What is a Curb Adapter Anyway?

Let’s start with…What is a curb?

In this context a curb is a device used to create an opening in a roof, it separates the roofing material and provides structural support for the equipment that will sit on it.  In a Roof Top Unit (RTU) application, inside the curb will be supports where ducts will hang so the air can flow through the roof into the inside of the building.

What is a curb adapter?

Often when an RTU is being replaced, the new unit does not identically match the existing curb size and duct drop locations.  A curb adapter must be custom made to transition the air from the new unit openings, to the old unit openings.  Here is our Curb Adapter Page to illustrate.
