Round and Rectangular Phenolic Duct

Medical Production Facility Utilizes Thermaduct's InspiralR and Kingspan KoolDuct

Here at Thermaduct we are proud users of Kingspan KoolDuct, which we use in all of our pre-manufactured systems. Naturally, these systems work exceptionally well together and provide extremely low air leakage and over a 70% reduction in weight loads for both indoor and outdoor applications.

One installation that benefited from phenolic systems was this medical production facility in California. As a result of expanded operations during the ongoing pandemic, this facility needed to open up more usable space for production and needed a solution that would not require additional structural considerations and eliminate the need for seismic bracing.

A combination of our InspiralR paired with rectangular Kingspan KoolDuct allowed this installation to meet their HVAC system's R-6 insulation requirements with much lower weight loads being applied to the building.

The InspiralR provided a consistent R-6 insulated value in this application with minimal air leakage. InspiralR is UL 181 listed for 10" w.c. positive and 8" w.c. negative applications. This lightweight system can offer up to a 75% weight savings when compared to traditional double wall spiral ductwork.
