Ductus has a strong standing in the market due to our extensive distributorship network around Australia and our affiliation with ALP. It is this partnership with our suppliers and duct fabricators that inspires confidence and trust in our end to end service and delivery in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning sector.
The technology that Ductus has been able to bring to Australia is due to the distributorship relationship we have with ALP. ALP is a company born in Italy that introduced lightweight ducting to the HVAC industry 40 years ago. ALP has a long history in ducting and has invested heavily in research and development, resulting in the pre-insulated, lightweight HVAC ducts that is of the highest quality and meets or exceeds industry standards in Italy, Dubai America and Australia.
We have forged a relationship with our fabricators and ALP by introducing an ISO 9001:2008 accreditation for our fabricators employees where they are formally trained directly by specialists from ALP. This ensures the product meets the standard, operates as intended and our fabricators are up to date with the technical knowledge and innovation that the ALP educator brings with him.
Today with several manufacturers around Australia we have a distributorship network that can reliably meet the demands of any small or large scale project. With this extensive network and uniform training around the country, we can be confident that all our products are made to the highest standard.
There are many benefits to using the lightweight pre-insulated system. ALP system eliminates difficulties experienced when using the traditional ‘metal’ systems such as engineering for a heavier, larger roof frame required to support the heavier system, safety issues on installation, energy waste and air efficiency issues.
Ductus is an environmentally responsible company and takes great pride in the environmental benefits our product affords in the building of the project and in the long term use of the product. ALP delivers a system that has a minimal environmental impact in both production of the pre-insulated foam and is energy efficient once it is installed. In producing ALP ducts there is zero ozone depleting potential, no CFC/HCFC used and no VOC’s, making it an environmentally friendly choice.
Our range offers ALP system, ALP round and ALP active, giving specifiers choices in aesthetics and performance that were not available in the past. The ALP active offers an antimicrobial system that is a patented technology, scientifically proven to reduce microbial load by up to 77% making it an excellent choice for environments where biological air quality is of the utmost importance. The ALP round system offers an aesthetically pleasing, truly round system without compromising air efficiency. ALP ducts are made using a heavy duty aluminium facing for added strength and come in a range of sizes making it applicable for almost any application. The insulating foam, which is resistant to water absorption due to the closed cell chemical structure, makes it a great choice for high moisture environments, such as swimming centres.
With a supportive distributorship network around Australia, technical specifications that meet or exceed Australian standards, environmental benefits, safer installation and flexibility in design ALP is a superior choice for any project.
