Rethinking Ductwork

Traditionally, HVAC ductwork is constructed from galvanised sheet steel, which is installed first and then insulated separately as a second operation. Pre-insulated ductwork is installed in a single-fix and can eliminate virtually all of the problems associated with galvanised sheet steel, mineral fibre duct board and pre-insulated rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) ductwork systems.

This presentation aims to educate listeners on Part L 2013 Building Regulations, TIMSA and BS 5422: 2009, and how pre-insulated ductwork can aid easy compliance. It goes into detail about the implications of ductwork air-leakage when trying to achieve the BER and the heat loss and heat gain requirements of HVAC insulation. It also aims to educate listeners on the benefits of incorporating pre-insulated ductwork into the design of a building, with relation to: space; weight; speed; and cost.
