Spiral Pipe Benefits
Some of the benefits afforded by spiral pipe include aesthetic appeal, economical installation, lower cost of ownership, a solution for many design requirements, available in many materials, useful for multiple applications.
Aesthetic Appeal of Spiral Pipe
Many architects favor the use of exposed spiral duct over traditional rectangular duct due to its unique and exceptional aesthetic appeal. Spiral duct that that is paintable can be finished to stand out from or blend seamlessly with an indoor environment.
Several unique characteristics of spiral pipe that can reduce the costs of installation include:
Longer spans minimize operations required for installation, including the number of hangers and connections required
Easier to install around and through structural framing
Include easy and quick connections that are also easier to seal
Reduced Ownership Cost
Spiral duct lowers initial and operational costs in the following ways:
Manufactured efficiently from strip steel to any desired diameter
Exceptional strength allows the use of less expensive, lighter gauge metals
Enables the use of more efficient and smaller air moving equipment due to optimal air flow, low air leakage, and lower pressure drop characteristics.
Smooth interior of spiral duct traps much less particulates (such as dust) and is easier to clean
