The market is also a kind of bracket to mount on the horizontal bar. They much easier to install, as for fastening to a wall to drill three holes instead of four. The design of the bracket is quite complicated, which is reflected in the price, which is three to four times higher than that of the standard. In Today, Russian producers have ceased production of brackets on the bar and are on sale only import – Italian and Chinese. When installing window air conditioners, some installers use a special brackets, the so-called "slide". These brackets, as well as supports, are available in one version, but with the ability to adjust for different sizes of air conditioners. There are also exotic for Russian market Bracket options – polyamide.
The main advantage of using plastic instead of metal is obvious – plastic is practically immune to corrosion. Cons of nylon bracket is their high price (about three times higher than normal) and absence of test of strength at low temperatures (brackets are made in Italy). Traditionally, all steel used in the installation of air conditioners, painted in white powder coating method. This method of coloring is much better protects the metal from corrosion than the use of various other types of enamels and paints. For additional corrosion protection is possible application of zinc ("zinc") before painting.
Currently, due to unreasonably high costs of domestic producers of galvanized steel declined. The kit usually consists of hardware brackets for mounting the outdoor unit conditioner (screws, nuts and washers). Some manufacturers add a set of mounting special rubber vibration damping pads, but they are used during installation is extremely rare. For mounting brackets to the wall more often using front plugs 10h100mm. But due to the fact that the walls are different in each case using screws, an appropriate wall material. For hollow bricks are used dowels 10h160mm size. Many installers prefer to use the so-called "wood grouse" in diameter 14mm. The best-known brand of professional fasteners used on the HVAC market – Mungo (Switzerland) and Hilti (Liechtenstein). In addition to the brackets and stands, which are necessary elements for mounting the outdoor unit air conditioners are used, and additional structures – roofs and anti-vandal protection (lattice). Canopies are used to protect external unit from falling icicles, and other items. Vandal grating protects outdoor units from all sides – both from falling on top of various objects, and damage to other parties, such as a randomly thrown rock or football. Install a protective grid significantly reduces the likelihood of theft outdoor unit, although it does not exclude it completely. Visors makes sense to install on all outdoor units, hanging on the wall, regardless of mounting height. Vandal lattice is usually installed when the outdoor unit is on the level of first-or second-floor roof of the building. When using lattice setting sun visor is not required. Canopies and grills are made of different sizes, which can be used with most air conditioners without having to order custom designs.
