Spiralite ductwork meets installation challenges

Spiralite, ductwork, KoolDuct

Spiralite flat-oval ductwork fabricated from Kingspan KoolDuct panels helped meet the short programme timescale for upgrading and expanding a state-of-the-art manufacturing site near Belfast. The 9300 m2 factory has been carefully customised to the firm’s needs.

Beattie Flanigan and Gilmore Engineering Services oversaw the M&E specification on the project. For the ventilation ductwork, they selected the flat-oval, pre-insulated ductwork from Spiralite. It was installed by cg3 Systems.

Andrew Gilmore, managing director of cg3 Systems, explained, ‘The Spiralite ductwork did not require any secondary insulation, which meant it was great to install quickly.

‘The product’s light weight meant that no additional steelwork was required to support it, which saved on construction time and also massively reduced the possibility of injury to our onsite operatives, particularly during high-level works.’

Ductwork fabricated from KoolDuct panels can reduce air-leakage rates to a fraction of those typical of rectangular sheet-metal ductwork.
