Metal Thrust Restraints
Product Description

Metal Thrust Restraints our company presents are utilized for counteracting the discharge force generated by fans throughout the operation. These kind of restraints can be utilized in pairs and the best used whenever installed on the center-line of the discharge outlet of the fan as well as bridging the flexible duct connector. They are made out of wide diameter, high deflection, laterally stable steel metal coil springs assembled into bracket assembly and a threaded rod. Owing to molded neoprene end load plate assemblies, the Metal Thrust Restraints are high in demand across the market.

Easyflex Model EFTR Thrust Restraints are used to counteract the discharge force created by fans during operation. EFTR Thrust Restraints are used in pairs and best utilized when located on the centerline of the discharge outlet of the fan, bridging the flexible duct connector. Easyflex Model EFTR Thrust Restraints consist of high deflection, large diameter, laterally stable steel coil springs assembled into a threaded rod and bracket assembly. The coil spring have a lateral spring stiff-ness greater than 1.0 times the rated vertical stiffness to assure coil minimum of 50% overload deflection capability to solid. The coil springs are epoxy powder coated for corrosion protection.

EFTR Thrust Restraints feature molded neoprene end load plate assemblies. EFTR Thrust Restraints include threaded adjustment rod with hardware, fan and ductwork mounting bracket angles, bracket back-up plates, and all attachment hardware.


ASHRAE recommends that thrust restraints such as Easyflex Model EFTR incorporate the same coil spring deflection as the support isolators. EFTR Thrust Restraints are to be used for all fan heads, suspended fans, and all base-mounted and suspended air-handling equipment operating at 2 inches or greater total static pressure (TSP). EFTR Thrust Restraints are always installed in pairs and often work in conjunction with inertia bases for floormountaed fans to counteract fan thrust. Total fan thrust can be calculated using the following formula :

 Thrust (Ibs.) = 0.036 x {TSP (PSI.)} x {Fan Discharge Outlet Area (sq. in.)} 

To select the correct EFTR Thrust Restraint to be used, this total calculated thrust is to be divided by two (2) and then rounded up to the next highest standard coil spring capacity. Easyflex EFTR Thrust Restraints are best utilized when located on the centerline of the discharge outlet of the fan. Fan instability can occur when attempts are made to control fan thrust only at the (floor-mounted) isolator location. The attachment of the EFTR brackets must be made at structurally sound locations and cannot be attached to bare unreinforced sheet metal ductwork. The EFTR coil spring is to be preloaded to allow for approximately 0.25" (6 mm) of additional deflection due to fan motion upon start-up. EFTR Thrust Restraint movement adjustment must be made under normal fan operational static pressures. 119 Flexible Connector Fan Discharge Air Flow Ductwork Compliance - Springs designed according to BS 1726 (Part 1) and recommendations made by SAE (US) and ASHRAE
