Aesthetic and Structural Benefits of Flat Oval Spiral DuctWork
A flat oval spiral duct structure consists of an insulating layer that interconnects with an outer layer that is made up of a strongly built shell that withstands metallic pressure and an inner layer made up of metal. They come in longitudinal seam structures that make them perfect to be applied to heavier gauges. Flat oval spiral ductwork should be considered in ‘space-limited areas’ or where the ceilings hang low to enable sufficient air supply. Also, in areas where round ducts cannot be applied, flat oval spiral ducts are highly recommended.
The spiral ducts come in long or short lengths and, for added strength, are corrugated. Spiral ductwork helps enhance the appearance of a building due to clean construction, and the exposed spiral ductwork can be painted to pass as part of the ceiling. The set-up doesn’t require additional bolstering due to the seams that are firm which also makes the system appear clean.
Leakages in the spiral ductwork are prevented due to their air-tight structure, and they are energy efficient because of low resistance to airflow in the pipes. Installation of the hanging spiral ducts is fast and doesn’t involve complex procedures, as the parts of the spiral ducts are made to fit perfectly into one another. Installation time is also greatly reduced as the structure doesn’t require a sealant. Compared to rectangular ducts, the flat oval spiral duct requires less bolstering and experiences less vibration due to its flat surface. Installation of the spiral pipe requires only a small number of workers to put up large sections due to the lightness of the material of the spiral duct pipe.
The air and watertight structure of flat oval spiral duct pipes ensures fewer air leaks, improved flow of air, and reduced noise, making them highly recommended for use indoors.
