The installation of flexible Class 1 duct is becoming more common in the US HVAC industry. The most obvious benefit is the reduced cost of material and installation in place of rigid metal duct. Not only does flexible duct provide fast economical installation, but other advantages include superior insulation and thermal performance, conformability to fit oval inlets and fittings, compliance with state and federal standards and self-extinguishing components that will not support flame.
It is important to use the right tape to provide long term, durable seals during the installation of flexible duct. IPG is a leader in the development of tapes designed to seal and protect flexible duct joints, seams and plenums. From duct tape to UL 181B-FX listed film tapes, IPG has a broad range of products to meet the most stringent applications.
