When Richco International needed to cool down their UK manufacturing plant in Northfleet it was DuctSox fabric ducting that clinched the deal. Their challenge was that they needed to get the temperature of their plant room down to acceptable levels while at the same time eliminating any draughts that might upset the critical measuring equipment there.
A system was designed which delivered cool fresh air from 3 Met Mann AD-14-VS/100 floor-mounted top discharge evaporative coolers mounted externally at the rear of the factory and connected with a range of DuctSox Sedona-Xm fabric ducts, a premium grade fabric that provides ‘comfort-flow’ a superior airflow, which solved their specific air movement issue on the factory floor below.
DuctSox’s H-Track, an anodized aluminium track suspension system, was mounted via the purlins keeping the fabric duct system stable above the production area this hanging system is great for applications where the system changes direction.
If you have a project that requires an exacting solution, please contact us.
Sedona-Xm fabric is now woven with 55% recycled content (80% post-industrial, 20% post-consumer). Sedona-Xm is still treated with a durable antimicrobial agent that maintains its effectiveness even after 10 washings. The yarns are made of non-linting filament threads to meet the requirements of ISO Class 3 Environments.
Sedona-Xm is available in blue, natural white, red, green, tan, gray, black, and custom colours. Natural white is not the same “bright white” we have offered in the past. If your project does require a “bright white” DuctSox, we can provide that for you in our standard Verona fabric.
Our new and improved Sedona-Xm is now a great option to have in today’s environmentally-conscious society, and one that should be specified on your next GREEN project!
Verona has been re-engineered to meet not only UL and ICC-ES, but also British and China standards. We also increased the weight of the fabric from 5.2 ounces to 6.2 ounces per square yard, and improved the aesthetics with a matte finish on the exposed side.
The new Verona will soon be offered for food processing applications where extensive laundering is required. It will be available in multiple porosities (6, 13, and 29 CFM), will meet the same FR requirements as Verona, and will be available in both white and custom colours.
