Technical Publications

SMACNA has developed over thirty technical publications, videos, charts, and guidelines which are considered international standards for our industry. Committees of contractors from throughout North America develop the publications which range from HVAC Duct Construction Standards to Kitchen Equipment Guidelines. SMACNA's Guidelines for Seismic Restraint of Mechanical Systems has become the guidebook for architects, engineers, design professionals, and contractors.

How our Prices Work: Members should contact the Association directly for prices on technical manuals. The discounted price is available only to: architectural and engineering firms and their employees (provided they are not in the contracting business as well); educational institutions; public libraries; government agencies and departments. Bookstores should call SMACNA for ordering information. Non-SMACNA members and all others pay list price.
