Kinetics Model RH Vibration Isolation Hangers are designed to reduce the transmission of vibration and noise produced by suspended equipment, piping, and ductwork. RH Hangers incorporate a color-coded elastomerin-shear insert with a load plate, assembled into a stamped or welded hanger bracket. Model RH hangers are a unique utilization of elastomer, loading the material in shear rather than compression, increasing allowable strain without accelerating deterioration. RH Hangers will allow support rod misalignment through a 30° arc. Isolation brackets will carry a 500% overload without failure. Hangers are available in deﬂections from 0.20” to 0.57″ (5 mm to 15 mm) and in capacities up to 2,000 Ibs (907 kg). RH Hangers may be selected where first cost must be minimized. Kinetics Model RH Hangers are recommended for the isolation of vibration produced by suspended mechanical equipment, in-line and exhaust fans, ductwork, piping, etc..
Kinetics Model RH hangers are used to isolate suspended sources of audible frequency vibration, or isolation of noise in piping and ductwork systems. Model RH hangers are shipped fully assembled and ready for installation in threaded rod suspension systems. Model RH hangers are available in a wide range of load selections and up to 0.57″ (15 mm) static deﬂection and can be provided with laborsaving accessories for adaption to wire or strap suspension systems.

Vibration isolators with maximum static deﬂection requirements under operating load conditions not exceeding 0.57″ (15 mm) shall be hangers consisting of an elastomer-in-shear insert encased in a welded steel bracket and provided with a stamped load transfer cap.
The elastomer insert shall be molded from oil resistant compounds, shall be color-coded to indicate load capacity and selected to operate within its published load range. The hanger bracket shall be designed to carry a 500% overload without failure and to allow support rod misalignment through a 30° arc without metal to metal contact or other short circuits. Isolation hangers shall be selected by the manufacturer for each specific application to comply with deﬂection requirements as shown on the Vibration Isolation Schedule or as indicated on the project documents. Vibration isolation hanger assembly shall be Model RH, as manufactured by Kinetics Noise Control, Inc.
