Being a "commercial" roof, me being from The Great State of Florida, I'm thinking it's a Flat roof. Iuse to do the penatration like Bud explained. That is until I har the Pipe Fitters would run out the side of the box and UP to the unit. That would create a water tunnel down the pipe and into the building. Not acceptable, I now build a flashing that is square, say 8"X8". This is about 10 " tall. (i hem the top). Them I build a "shoebox that is say 8"X12" about 8 " deep. I place the shoebox on top of the flashing with about a 2"lap. This makes the fitter create a "Drip Loop" with their pipe so the water can't run in. I adjust the contraption to fit the need. I can even have multipule sides for the pipes to exit for more than 1 unit. Get it? it?? dupree :roll:
4 got to tell ya- i spray that foam stuff round the opening to keep critters out
