Today, more and more companies are switching from rectangular to spiral round rigid duct work.
Why is this? what advantages do spiral systems have over rectangular? The answer is simple.
E nergy efficient
C ost less to install
O ften required less space
N eed less hangers
O peration cost lower
M ore noise free
I nstallation simplified
C leaning less complicated
A irflow measurement easier

(to increase the rigidity of the ducting by 300%)
Pre-insulated Double-walled Spiral Duct Systems
A. Thermal Insulation
A double-walled thermal insulated spiral duct consists of an external pressure tight metal shell, a 12.5/25 /50mm thick of fiberglass / mineral wool / puf insulation and an internal protective metal liner.
- Double-wall fire protection.
- No sheet metal screws in the air stream
- Lower friction loss
- Improved appearance
- Speeds installation
- No fibers in the airstream.
- Protection from External damages.
B. Acoustic Insulation
A double-walled acoustic insulated spiral duct consists of an external pressure tight metal shell, a 12.5/25/50mm thickness of fiber glass/mineral wool insulations and an internal perforated protective metal liner and fiber glass tissue between the perforated liner and insulation material. In addition to the above advantages this system is having advantage of High Sound transmission loss.
Duct Fittings (Elbows, Reduccers, End caps, Offsets, etc.) with standing seam joints are manufactured on high speed machines (CNC Plasma cutter, Gore locker, etc.) while maintaining the high dimensional accuracy.
Spiral Ducts and duct fittings joined together by slip joint coupling.
