Armacell’s Armaflex Duct is a purpose developed solution for the fast and effective outer cladding of ductwork systems in commercial air conditioning systems.
This closed cell, fibre-free material offers low thermal conductivity values to limit heat and energy losses whilst preventing moisture ingress, an important feature for controlling condensation on cold air ductwork.
The flexible material also features in-built Microban anti-bacterial protection to minimise the potential for surface microbial growth which can contribute to the symptoms of sick building syndrome.
In addition, Armaflex Duct is said to have good noise absorption properties.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) expects a growing demand within Europe for air conditioning, with systems likely to increase by more than 10 per cent by 2020. It estimates the energy requirement for AC systems will grow twice as fast as the overall energy requirement for buildings, due to climatic changes and the escalating standards required for both living and working comfort. In some buildings, running AC systems account for half of the electricity consumption load, so it is increasingly important to insulate ducting installations using the latest, high specification materials.
