Ductus has joined forces with Kingspan Insulation to be the new National KoolDuct Distribution Partner. KoolDuct is an advanced and innovative pre-insulated rectangular HVAC ductwork system from Kingspan.
“The phenolic based KoolDuct insulation board, produced in our Somerton VIC facility, is a real game changer for the HVAC market and we are excited to make it more readily available to Australian consumers through our new partnership with Ductus,” said Scott Gibson, Kingspan Insulation Australia’s managing director.
Ductus is Australia’s leading supplier of high-end air conditioning ducting supplies, ventilation and duct system products. It specialises in supplying innovative products that meet the required strict building standards of the medical, industrial and commercial industries.
“Ductus has always focused on delivering proven and tried products into this sector of the market. We are excited to add a global leader into our product range and we feel that the Australian made KoolDuct, with its green credentials, is the perfect fit for us,” said Jim Malek, Ductus’ managing director.
“Our experience and knowledge within the sector along with our vast experienced fabricating partners, ensures that we deliver quality all the time, every time. We will continue to focus on the implantation of KoolDuct with the engineers introducing the concept of qualified pre-insulated duct systems within the region. Sheetmetal has its place, but I see that its time has come. Building owners and occupiers globally have become more environmentally focused on their HVAC systems, demanding products that are more sustainably manufactured, lighter, more airtight and ultimately deliver greater energy efficiency and comfort,” added Malek.
The clear leader in the new generation of pre-insulated ductwork, Kingspan’s KoolDuct system reduces energy consumption, carbon and cost.
KoolDuct is the only premium performance pre–insulated ductwork in the world to be UL Listed as a Class 1 Air Duct under the UL 181 Standard for Safety when fabricated to the UL specification.
It weighs up to 75% less than ductwork constructed from conventional galvanised sheet steel and bulk insulation, making it ideal for refurbishment projects, where existing building structures have insufficient load capacities for new services.
Made from a thermoset phenolic material, KoolDuct has exceptional fire performance, demonstrating low flame spread, smoke emissions and toxicity emissions under fire.
