Kingspan Insulation LLC has launched an all-new product, KDuct, to cater to external ductwork applications. It is Kingspan’s innovative and revolutionary pre-clad ductwork system made of thermoset fibre-free pre-insulated duct board with a heavy-duty outer jacket. It is ideal for external applications, plant rooms, risers, congested spaces and lightweight specifications.
Kingspan KDuct Pre-Clad Duct System offers high performance, rigid, closed-cell insulation core, manufactured with a blowing agent with zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). At the same time, the panels are faced on both sides with an embossed aluminium foil.
The new product line will provide ultra-strength and rigidness, cost-savings over traditional exterior ductwork, extra-low air leakage which does not allow conditioned air to escape, and high–compressive strength, among several other benefits.
Sarmad Fakhri, Managing Director of Kingspan Insulation LLC, said: “The KDuct ductwork system will help our customers to save extra cost and time due to its lightweight and single fix properties.” Unlike the traditional approach to ductwork construction, which requires sections to be lagged with insulated once installed, Kingspan KDuct panels are pre-insulated with a high-performance insulation core. This single-fix and lightweight design reduces installation time and transfers the cost benefits to the building owners.
