FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA (SEPTEMBER 22, 2010)—Plumbing and mechanical contractors should find it far easier and faster to install multiple tankless water heaters in commercial applications with the new, prefabricated MR-2 Commercial Racking System from Noritz America. Beyond time and labor savings, the rack also offers the added advantage of installing of multiple units in the middle of a space, rather than having to affix them to a sidewall.

  Noritz Commercial MultiRack

Designed for both outdoor (flat rooftops) and indoor (mechanical room) applications, the new multi-rack system holds two tankless water heaters back to back and is precisely designed to match the mounting points for all Noritz products. Measuring approximately 64 inches tall, 19 inches wide and 31 inches deep when fully assembled, the MR-2 has the shape of an inverted “T” and is designed to sit flat on the mechanical-room floor or rooftop. Weighing approximately 48 pounds, the unit is constructed of corrosion-resistant ZAM steel that is finished with a hot-dip coating of zinc, aluminum and magnesium to further enhance protection.

“Noritz is the only tankless water heater manufacturer in the United States offering installers the option of a multi-rack system,” says Bob Hitchner, Senior Vice President - Sales, Marketing & Business Development for Noritz. “This rugged, prefabricated accessory should greatly smooth the installation of multiple tankless units in a commercial environment, saving substantial amounts of time, money and hassle.”
