What does RC in a Dutch technical drawing mean ?

Recommended Posts

I dont think the Dutch are parking blocks of reinforced concrete in the middle of their office.. LOL hehe :wink:

Actually... we love our reinforced concrete blocks! :p

But I have no idea. Wikipedia gives no clue: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/MK

CV could be the central heating (centrale verwarming), especially next to the ventilation like that.

But on that map, it looks like reserved space for something? Storage? Racks or pallets? (pallets are also pallets in dutch)

I got nothing. I'm not Dutch, but I do work with architects (I'm a architecture drop-out myself :p) and that could be anything. Especially since they're stacked one on front of the other like that. Rack cabinets would need access space I presume.

Notice that the CV has a line connecting it with a RC on the left, so it's definitely some sort of installation.

The MK has a door, so it must be some sort of cabinet. Judging by that, the RC things must either be installed in the floor, or the ceiling, since the door of the MK cabinet couldn't otherwise work.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
