Atlanta, Ga. — Kingspan Insulation LLC is a leading global manufacturer of energy-efficiency and moisture-management products. The company produces thermally efficient and technologically advanced high-performance insulation, building wraps and pre-insulated HVAC ductwork and recently increased its footprint in North America.
Kingspan Insulation will have its KoolDuct HVAC ductwork system featured in The New American Home® at the International Builders’ Show, January 10–12, 2017, and at its booth, No. S2606 in the South Hall. Kingspan product manager Gavin Hunter will be available on site to answer questions about the system.
The Kingspan KoolDuct system is an advanced and innovative pre-insulated HVAC ductwork system which offers benefits such as reduced installation time, low weight, space savings through flush-to-ceiling installation, increased performance and energy efficiency. Ductwork fabricated from the Kingspan KoolDuct system can be installed indoors, outdoors, and concealed above false ceilings and below raised floors. Kingspan KoolDuct is UL 181 listed as a Class 1 Air Duct and can easily attain a SMACNA Class 3 air leakage rating.
The system comprises premium-performance Kingspan KoolDuct panels, fabrication methods, coupling systems and a complete line of accessories to produce pre-insulated rectangular ductwork in sections up to 13 feet (3.93 meters) long for faster installation. KoolDuct weighs up to 72 percent less than ductwork constructed from galvanized sheet metal and insulated with mineral fiber insulation. It also saves six to eight inches in a single dimension and can be installed flush to the ceiling.
Kingspan KoolDuct panels are manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion potential and low global warming potential. The fiber-free, rigid insulation core minimizes the risk of loose fibers entering the airstream through the ductwork, since distributed air does not come into contact with insulation material that produces loose fibers.
