The Alternative A Frame System

Are you tired of paying exorbitant fees to move around or install rooftop units? The Alternative A Frame System is a very cost effective solution for rolling AC Units around on roof tops. Stop sending your profit out the door with excising crane rentals and helicopter expenses. Put that profit in your pocket!

The Alternative A Frame System has the following capabilities and features: 3,500 lbs. Capacity, 12′ Spreader Bar, Heavy Duty Rubber Tires, Includes full instructions, and Rigging Kit upon request.

Robert Pilgrim has operated cranes all his working life, starting at the age of 17 for general contractors pouring concrete, erecting steel and setting all types of equipment. In 1980, he struck out on his own, leasing a 27.5-ton truck crane. He soon upgraded by purchasing a 30-ton truck crane to expand his market and ability to take on bigger and more profitable jobs.

To counter the ups and downs of the construction market and economic instability of the late 1990s Robert decided to focus his energy on the HVAC market.

Always looking for ways to more efficiently perform his jobs and help his customers, Robert built a 2-wheeled buggy to roll AC units weighing up to 3,500 lbs. around on rooftops. “HVAC Contractors face special challenges and added expenses when trying to place rooftop units in places that are too far for boom trucks to reach,” Robert claims. “The solution used to be hiring larger, more expensive cranes and even helicopters to complete the jobs. The buggy system worked well but obviously had limitations. I needed a better alternative.”

In 2010, Robert designed his first Alternative A Frame. Built out of steel, with a top spreader bar and large, swiveling, locking pneumatic wheels, the Alternative A Frame stands at 8’6” tall, with 3’ leg extensions raising it to 11’ 6”. Chain falls at each end of the A Frame do the heavy lifting. Robert certified the Alternative A Frame at 3,500 lbs. using a 8’ spreader bar through his local Rigging Supply Co. It takes just a few minutes to assemble the unit and only 2 to 4 people to roll units up to 3500 lbs.

The new supply duct connection system reduces the steps and time involved in the installation process. Consisting of lock-and-release tabs making it easier and faster to assemble, Twist-Fit couplings are attached to lengths of sound attenuator or aluminum supply tubing by threading the base of the coupling into the inner core of the tubing. The internal insulation and outer mylar jacket of the supply tubing are then tucked into the rim of the Twist-Fit and the connection is secured with UL-181B foil tape. All tubing is supplied with couplings already attached from the factory.

Matching Twist-Fit couplings are attached to the desired plenum take-offs, outlet registers, or additional lengths of supply tubing. To make a connection, simply line up the tabs to their corresponding slots and twist clockwise until a click is heard. At least one Twist-Fit connector must have a gasket to prevent leakage.

Available in 3-Foot Sections

If you believe in the traditional saying that “time equals money” the Unico 3-foot sections of attenuator tubing are going to provide substantial savings in both areas. Because they are modular in design with quick connect fittings, they minimize the need for custom cuts and the production of time-consuming connections in the field. Check out the various benefits below of the Unico Twist Fit 3-foot tubes.

Another place Unico saves you time and money are in the area of ordering the various connection pieces to support the use of the 3-foot sectional pieces. No longer do you have to order all the individual pieces which can be both confusing and time consuming.

Whether your job or project requires 1 set of connectors or 6 sets, we have a Unico Kit for you.
