Strengthen Your Roofing System With Strong Supports

GreenLink Strong Supports
September 23, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.

By Kaitlyn Briggs, Green Link Engineering. 

Green Link Engineering has changed the HVAC and roofing communities by providing durable and professional supports to contractors on the roof. 

Your roof and equipment are only as durable as the supports used for accessories. HVAC/R equipment is particularly problematic in this area because often, blocks of wood are used to support the installation of new equipment. However, this can rot or warp throughout the years when constantly exposed to the elements. Green Link is committed to improving the durability and design of supports throughout the industry to ensure equipment and roofing systems are protected.  

Located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Green Link opened its doors with a commitment to contractor driven products. Debuting with their iconic KnuckleHead – a gray, glass-reinforced, UV-resistant, military grade nylon resin support with safety yellow accessories – Green Link took the HVAC/R and roofing communities by storm. 

The KnuckleHead is available in five styles that can be attached with an extension or directly to one of the two bases. It is incredibly versatile, and its unique design allows for up to one inch of built-in adjustment for onsite leveling. Applications include strut, pipe, solar and paver supports, with the strut supports forming the base for some of their fully adjustable mechanical supports. 

The mechanical supports, available in low profile and elevated configurations, are ideal for all models of HVAC equipment; they are fully customizable in length and width and customizable up to 24 inches in height. Available in single unit and multi-unit configuration banks, Green Link’s in-house engineers are available for every project to ensure that your equipment is supported as efficiently as possible. 

The KnuckleHeads and the mechanical supports can be mounted on one of Green Link’s two bases – the universal base or the big base (which is recommended for supports over 12 inches). These bases can be loose laid, fastened to the roof mechanically or adhered with Green Link’s specially formulated adhesive/sealant, which provides up to 275 psi bond strength when applied to single-ply or built-up roof membranes. 

Green Link’s newest product, the MetalHead, is a triangular shaped support topped with a 1-5/8 inch by 1-5/8 inch strut channel, made from anodized aluminum and compatible with all standard strut accessories. The MetalHead can support up to ten thousand pounds, and its applications include pipe, duct and electrical conduit support. Green Link’s engineers recommend the MetalHead specifically for non-sloped projects and when replacing supports of a similar function. 

No matter what kind of support you need, from a line of Lite Pipe KnuckleHeads to support water lines or a full roof of mechanical support assemblies for an apartment building’s worth of HVAC equipment, Green Link will work with you to find a custom, cost effective solution to protect your roof, your equipment and your investment.
