Are you finding your air conditioning system not performing optimally? It might be a sign that your ducting needs attention. In this extensive guide, we'll explore the indications that suggest it's time to replace or upgrade your air conditioning ducting. Let's dive deep into the world of efficient HVAC systems and the latest innovations in ducting.
Kingspan Koolduct in Australia
Unveiling Cutting-Edge Insulation Technology
The heart of the Kingspan KoolDuct System lies in its cutting-edge insulation technology. The panels are crafted from a fibre-free premium performance rigid thermoset phenolic insulation core, which is faced on both sides with an extremely durable and protective low vapour permeability reinforced aluminium foil. This not only guarantees superior performance but also ensures longevity.
Kingspan KoolDuct panels take it a step further by being CFC/HCFC-free. The blowing agent used in manufacturing has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). Such a commitment to environmental sustainability is a testament to Kingspan's dedication to creating products with a minimal impact on our planet.
Moisture Resistance: A Crucial Feature
The insulation core of Kingspan KoolDuct panels boasts a 90% (or greater) closed cell structure, rendering them non-wicking and highly resistant to moisture penetration. Additionally, the factory-applied aluminium foil facings act as a high-performance vapour barrier, effectively eliminating the risk of moisture absorption into the core. This dual-layered defence ensures the longevity and reliability of the ducting system.
ALP Active Duct Boards and Pre-Insulated Ducts
Anti-Bacterial Attributes for Improved Air Quality
ALP Active duct boards and pre-insulated ducts take a leap in innovation by incorporating a proprietary silver-based coating into the facing. This revolutionary feature imparts anti-bacterial attributes to the product, a quality not commonly found in traditional duct materials. Scientific studies have proven that this coating can eliminate 99% of pathogens within a 24-hour period of contact, making it an ideal choice for environments where air quality is paramount.
The ALP Active range isn't just about anti-bacterial properties; it represents a paradigm shift in ducting technology. Over the last two decades, continuous technological innovations have elevated our pre-insulated ducts to become the industry standard in the Australian, United Arab Emirates, Europe, and the United States markets.
Pre-Insulated Duct Suppliers: A Commitment to Excellence
Breath of Fresh Air: Clean Distribution
The unique design of our pre-insulated ducts results in air being 'cleaned' as it is distributed, ensuring better quality for humans to breathe. This feature is especially beneficial for individuals with respiratory conditions, such as asthma, providing an environment that promotes health and well-being.
Weight Reduction for Ease of Installation
Our systems are up to 85% lighter than conventional metal-based ductwork. This not only significantly reduces the weight placed on the infrastructure or rooftop of a building but also simplifies the installation process. The thermal properties of the materials further allow them to be installed closer to ceilings and walls, saving space without compromising efficiency.
Environmentally Friendly Manufacturing
Environmental consciousness is ingrained in our manufacturing process. The pre-insulated ducts and duct boards are produced without the use of CFCs or formaldehyde. By eliminating these harmful substances from the production process, we contribute to a healthier planet.
Certified Fabricators: Ensuring Quality
Every product we offer is manufactured by fabricators who have undergone rigorous training and are certified to assemble any of our pre-insulated ducts or duct boards. This certification ensures that our products not only meet but exceed the stringent European and Australian Standards for this type of product.
Additional Benefits: Setting Industry Standards
Air Leakage: Exceeding Industry Standards
The term 'Air Leakage' takes a positive turn regarding Ductus products. Our duct boards and pre-insulated ducts boast an air leakage rate of 1.5%, a remarkable 70% better than the recommended industry standard of 5%. This ensures that the air you want to distribute is directed efficiently and effectively.
Acoustic Properties: Creating Serene Environments
The acoustic properties of our products go beyond the minimum recommended decibel levels. The result is a quiet and serene environment, perfect for spaces where noise control is crucial.
Fire Safety: A Priority
Safety is paramount, and our products reflect this commitment. They are fire retardant and meet all global standards for fire safety. They not only resist spreading fire but also prevent the transfer of heat from external systems.
Corrosion Resistance: Longevity Ensured
Our products are designed to withstand the test of time. They will not corrode, rust, or exhibit any moisture leakage, even in environments with temperature differences between the internal and external surfaces of the duct.
ALP Round Range: Aesthetic Appeal with Functionality
While the ALP Round range may not possess the anti-bacterial properties of the ALP Active, it offers a more aesthetic appeal. Lightweight and containing all the thermal and air leakage benefits, these products can be seamlessly integrated into environments where aesthetics matter.
Paintability for Unobtrusive Designs
An added advantage is that these products can be painted without compromising their benefits. After painting, ALP Round ducts remain unobtrusive to the internal design and aesthetic of the space, offering flexibility in design choices.
