Drip pans, also known as unit pans, drain pans or galvi pans
(galvanized steel), are custom made pans used to waterproof
air conditioning units, gas heaters, electric heaters, washing machines and dryers.
They are placed right below the machinery to
catch any water or moisture dripping from that unit,
preventing leakage to the floor area, avoiding costly repair due to unforeseen failures.
Riverside Sheet Metal will custom fabricate overflow unit pans with
galvanized steel and

Riverside can also install drains or pipes, fabricate neo-angle unit pans and round
shaped pans. Every unit pan fabricated is watertight by being soldered together.
Drip pans and unit pans are commonly fabricated with these materials:
