Low-leakage pre-insulated Kingspan PalDuct was installed in Intercontinental Dubai Marina

Unlike traditional sheet metal ducting, which needs to be thermally insulated as a second operation, the lightweight but strong Kingspan PalDuct System requires only a single fix installation. This not only provides considerable space saving advantages, but also makes the System a high speed option for projects where time is critical. 

Other benefits of the pre-insulated ductwork ‘complete system technology’ enhance its appeal to specifiers and building operators. The System’s low level of air leakage and superior insulating properties can result in electrical consumption savings. With The Kingspan PalDuct System, ventilation air flows over aluminium surfaces and does not have contact with any material containing loose fibres, making it ideal for high specification projects.

Jamey Ford, Director of Engineering for InterContinental Dubai Marina agrees and commented “Kingspan PalDuct pre-insulated ducting has been used throughout the hotel and has given great solutions where space is a real consideration. A space saving and energy efficient product that is quick, easy and reliable”.

Lightweight pre-insulated ductwork can be especially useful in high-rise buildings with many floors of building services.
