Introducing a revolution in clean Air Movement – the ALPactive medical duct board grade duct that is perfect for all duct board insulation requirements.
Since the inception of air movement within buildings, we have struggled to ensure that air quality remained fresh and without contaminants.
This is no easy feat; as traditional ‘cooling’ of air can lead to poor air quality being circulated throughout the building. As our cities continue to expand under global population growth, our living quarters and office spaces are becoming more congested, crowded and susceptible to air-borne contaminants and diseases.
The microbes that can cause such health concerns are displaced and travel through the ducting system.
Ducts in particular are the ultimate breeding ground for such pathogens and poor maintenance and poor-upkeep can compromise an entire HVAC system.
40 years of development and market research in the field of duct board insulation has given ALP great insights into the problems faced by engineers in designing a system that can facilitate clean air distribution.
They have taken these insights into the design and manufacture of their world-leading range of duct-related products.
“Over the years of presenting duct board solutions to consultants, contractors, and occupiers alike, one issue has always stood out; How do we maintain air quality? We now have a solution; its why we have chosen to bring this technology into Australia. There is nothing else that comes close to the patented ALPactive system, a fully integrated system that has been shown to surpass the European Medical Institute expectations” – Jim Malek (MD of Ductus)
Since the recognition that air movement within buildings was necessary healthcare has always been the primary objective. The HVAC industry has provided many alternative solutions to this problem over the years, but the ALP solution far supercedes anything that has come before it thanks to advancements in industry-specfic technology and data analysis over four decades.
This research and advancements in duct board technology, endless amounts of securitising by both internal and independent parties (such as the European Medical Institution) ALP’s patended anti-microbial “active” duct board system provides a true anti-microbial solution.
ALP’s innovation lies in the use of silver, a natural occurring element has been long known for its powerful anti-microbial ability. ALP has taken that element and formed it into a “Silver Zoelite compound” that has been integrated into the internal lining of the duct board.
This compound actively seeks out and destroys over 600 known pathogen groups like yeasts, mould, bacteria, and viruses including Legionella Pneumophila, Salmonella Choleraesuis and Staphylococcus aureus.
ALP is relentless in continuing to pursue excellence in air quality where their products are in use. This has culminated in recognition by many global bodies, such as the FDA and HY in Germany, that require air-related duct systems to pass a series of very strict guidelines.
