Koolduct performs at SECC

Severe space restrictions around ductwork for new work associated with the Scottish Exhibition + Conference Centre has been overcome using Koolduct pre-insulated ducting.
The use of Kingspan’s Koolduct pre-insulated ducting at the Scottish Exhibition + Conference Centre in Glasgow has overcome severe space restrictions — especially around the riser ducts. The new-build project is part of improvements to the Hall 4 concert facilities, which include a new dressing-room block, production offices, green room and purpose-built crew catering kitchen and dining area. Koolduct has been installed throughout the ceiling voids and riser ducts by ducting specialist Brankin Engineering, working closely with M&E consultant Hulley & Kirkwood. Bob Magee of Brankin Engineering said, ‘The fact that KoolDuct is pre-insulated and does not require any additional lagging made it ideal for this installation where space was severely restricted.’ Koolduct requires only a single-fix installation, unlike sheet-metal ducting, which then needs to be lagged with insulation. Independent analysis by consultants Bucknall Austin has concluded that Koolduct can be installed up to three times faster than sheet-metal ductwork.
