Pre-Assembled Platforms, Ladders & Safety Cages


  • Modular external platforms are pre-assembled at the factory to ensure that every component will fit and function exactly as described. The platform will attach quickly in the field with minimal fasteners. Platforms can be added at the time of order or as an aftermarket item. Safety gates are available for all handrail openings. All components are designed to meet OSHA requirements.

Vibration Cutout Switch

  • A factory mounted vibration cutout switch is available to effectively protect against equipment failure due to excessive vibration of the mechanical equipment system. BAC can provide either a mechanical or solid-state electronic vibration cutout switch in a NEMA 4 enclosure to ensure reliable protection. Additional contacts can be provided to activate an alarm.

Single Point Wiring

  • BAC offers the option for Single Point Wiring on VCA condensers. Single point wiring decreases installation time by routing wires, from motors (fan and pump) and options such as VCOS, EWLC and basin heaters, in UL-listed conduit to a stainless steel NEMA 3R electrical box. The single point wiring option is only available with the purchase of a BAC Controls Package.

Electric Water Level Control Package

  • The electric water level control replaces the standard mechanical make-up valve when a more precise water level control is required. This package consists of a conductance-actuated level control mounted in the basin and a solenoid activated valve in the make-up water line. The valve is slow closing to minimize water hammer.

Basin Heaters

Basin Heater

  • VCA Evaporative Condensers exposed to below freezing ambient temperatures require protection to prevent freezing of the water in the cold water basin when the unit is idle. Factory installed electric immersion heaters, which maintain +40°F (4.4°C) water temperature, are a simple and inexpensive way of providing such protection.
