Douk-itus or Ductus – is a Latin word meaning “duct” (= a tube), used in medical names and descriptions. A perfect description of Ductus the company. Ductus supply patented new-age air movement products for a variety of industries including some of the most challenging ones like the medical industry.
Ductus is Australia’s leading supplier of high-end air conditioning ducting supplies, ventilation and duct system products. We bring innovative products that meet the required strict building standards to the medical, industrial and commercial industries.
Director Jim Malek has been in the industry for over 15 years and brings with him a vast knowledge of the light-weight duct technology (LWDT) from both abroad and local market experience.
It is important to recognise that not all boards are manufactured the same nor are they designed to perform the same purpose. The Board takes a fundamental role and is critical component of the duct system, therefore it is essential that the integrity and composition of the board is tested thoroughly ensuring it can sustain its primary function structure over time.
Unfortunately, Australia has yet to identify these requirements and this is why we look to standards written internationally such as the Ventilation Standards within Europe. This provides a clearer understanding of the provisions and testing necessary for the safe and successful implementation of such LWD systems.
Ventilation Ducting has largely remained unchanged for many decades within the air conditioning and ducting supply market. Presently, as with many other industries, there is a need to address efficiency and power consumption within the ducting sector.
Improvements in testing, analysis and technology will lead to future improvements of the quality of air and quality of ventilation too.
ALP, an Italian company and the ‘father’ of LWDT has been providing advanced LWD systems for more than 30 years and continues to develop their range of products using the most advanced technology available.
With 17,000+ projects under their belt and unparalleled technological advancements, the Ductus-Alp collaboration aims to provide a full duct system unlike any other company in the world.
By providing clean air through our patented technologies, we are able to remove harmful air-borne pathogens from sensitive environments. At Ductus, we supply many innovative solutions – such as the light-weight ALP Round product (a world first) – that are suitable for both industrial and commercial environments.
This technology is an alternative to traditional sheet-metal ducting that is more cost effective to implement and manage and also delivers higher efficiencies.
Our Clean Room True Anti Microbial system is like no other, fully certificated to the strongest of standards, ALPactive has been tested and proven to destroy over 600 known pathogens within 24 hours of contact; ensuing longer lasting fresh air! Since the conception of air movement within buildings, man has struggled to develop systems that allow the air quality to remain fresh and without contaminants. As we continue to grow our cities and live in closer quarters, we find ourselves in an ongoing battle against the microbes that are displaced through the ducting system. Ducts particularly are the ultimate breeding ground for such pathogens! Poor maintenance and poor-upkeep compromise the whole HVAC system.Find out more
ALP provide a range of facing for all most applications, ranging from our thinest product at just 60 microns - ideal for in ceiling space out of the way of heavy traffic - to the more robust 200 or 500 micron products, strong enough to withstand the harsh Australian outdoor enviroment all year round.Find out more

Ductus presents the first Round LWD system in the world!
ALP the forefather of Light Weight Duct (LWD) Technology, has paved the way once again . . . In a first of its kind, Ductus along with ALP introduces the new patented Round LWD system to Australasia.
Mr. Librizzi, Managing Director of ALP says, “It has been an exciting journey to develop this ground-breaking technology. We had to start from a concept and develop everything from the machinery, testing and the complete system accessories. We needed to provide the industry with a turnkey product. A true pre-insulated round duct has never been done before!
We are excited to be launching this product into Australia with our partners Ductus!”
