A famous and very successful restaurant in Vancouver (who will remain anonymous) had a contractor install a split A/C.  This is the compressor outside in the alley.  How many fails can you find in this photo?


  1.  Circled in red: temporary mechanical clamps typically used for strapping down material in a flat bed truck.  This will rust and fail.
  2. Webbing exposed to the elements, in particular UV rays will become brittle and fail.
  3. Left hand mechanical clamp on a fire escape ladder!
  4. No seismic cabling (surprise!) to ensure condenser doesn’t fall.
