Koolduct is poetry in ductwork

Jerwood Centre
Built to preserve the works of William Wordsworth and his contemporary English poets, the 3-storey Jerwood Collections Centre incorporates the Kingspan KoolDuct system as part of environmental control to protect fragile documents. Built near Dove Cottage at Grasmere in the Lake District, where Wordsworth lived for nine years during his most creative period, this vbisitor centre attracts 75 000 visitors a year. Confined space in the cross-section of the roof void was the main reason why consulting engineers Arup chose Koolduct., which saves space by not requiring subsequent insulation. It can also be installed close to the ceiling. Ductwork specialist Boyd & Co. installed the lightweight KoolDuct system above false ceilings throughout the building.
