    What does "req´d" mean in Mechanics texts?

    Hello!
    I am translating a text about an air curtain into Spanish and I need to know the meaning of "req´d" in this classification please. I give some context:

    Mark:
    Model Number:
    Number Req´d: "Req´d" is a term used in mechanics for "required"?
    Overall length
    Weight:
    Etc.

    Thank you very much for the help, it is urgent!!

    I googled "acronyms" and it seems that req'd does indeed stand for required.

    Thank you! I did search on Google too and I found it as "required" but as I don´t know anything about mechanics... lol

    Thanks for the help!

    It doesn't have anything to do with mechanics - it's more or less a standard abbreviation for required.
