Design Solutions - School Gives High Efficiency HVAC System School Spirit with Thermaround Architectural

In early 2022, this Minnesota school’s equipment replacement gave the opportunity to not only upgrade their system’s performance, but aesthetics as well. With large areas located outdoors and exposed to both the elements and visible site lines, architectural options were explored to allow their school colors to be used. Thermaround Architectural ductwork provided a solution with a Kynar finished exterior to give them exactly the look they were going for.

Royal Blue Thermaround Architectural ductwork was chosen to provide an R-12 insulated value without the need for fibrous interior liners or duct wraps that would cover their exterior finish. The two layers of our lightweight InspiralR flanged connection made installation easy for Minnesota Contractor, Bauernfeind Goedtel.
