Predicting the top trends for 2019, a recent article in PHCP Pros anticipated energy- and water-efficient homes, clean and efficient HVAC and plumbing, and prefabrication and 3D design. Overall, plumbing, heating, cooling and piping professionals are looking for ways to be more efficient through technology and easy-to-install products.
When it comes to quality seismic protection system, several potential hazards should be accounted for, but necessary components can be simplified into seven considerations. Those are:

Prefabrication is undeniably beneficial in the long term for contractors, installer and site owners. However, some perceive prefabrication practices as difficult. Although the benefits outweigh the drawbacks, such apprehensions can deter contractors from making improvements to their processes. We've addressed some common concerns about prefabrication:
Rooftop mechanical and electrical systems are very sensitive to wind and seismic damage. Rooftop anchoring is vital for the protection of systems including: pipe, conduit, cable tray, duct and equipment.
nVent CADDY has updated the EZ Riser to provide several new user benefits, from quick installation times to elimination of possible rework. The product is recommended for suspending vertical steel pipe risers.
