The easy-reference document covers all aspects of the installation process for rectangular, circular and flat oval ductwork applications; from initial preparation, to TICA recommended methods of insulating flanges, stiffeners and connections. Clear annotated diagrams are included throughout, illustrating best practice in a range of areas such as dealing with radius sections and circular bends.
Both Kingspan Kooltherm FM Ductwork Insulation and Therma Duct Insulation offer a number of advantages for installers. The product’s high and premium performance insulation cores can help to keep ductwork dimensions to a minimum, without compromising energy performance. They’re suitable for indoor and outdoor applications on ductwork and associated products within an operating temperature range of –20°C to 80°C. Whilst their fibre-free insulation cores make them particularly well suited to controlled environment applications such as laboratories, food preparation and server rooms.
