How Lightweight KoolDuct Reduced Building Loads in Motorola Facility - Illinois

In one of their early applications fabricating KoolDuct, Sheet Metal Werks, provided this phenolic system to their customer for a massive reduction in weight and overall building loads on the project.

With duct planning to install on a grid system overhead of production areas, the use of Kingspan KoolDuct reduced the weight by over 200,000 lbs. to provide a safer installation for Motorola. KoolDuct's 2-in-1 duct system provided an R-6 pre-insulated value paired with its lightweight nature reducing duct weight on the project by up to 70%.

Take a look at what Kingspan's partner, Thermaduct, produced for their Phenolic Duct 101 presentation on the project.
