advantages of spiral pipe

The advantages of high pressure Spiral pipe compared to traditional rectangular duct are numerous and compelling:

Attractive appearance

  • Exposed spiral duct is attractive and is frequently specified by architects because of its superior aesthetic appeal.
  • Paintable Spiral duct can be finished to blend in with, or stand out from, the indoor environment.

Economical to install

The unique attributes of Spiral duct can reduce installation costs:

  • Easier to install through and around structural framing
  • Longer spans reduces installation operations and the number of connections and hangers required
  • Connections are made quickly and easily, and are easier to seal.

Lower cost of ownership

Spiral duct reduces upfront and operating costs:

  • Low air leakage, optimal airflow characteristics, and less pressure drop allow smaller and more efficient air moving equipment
  • Inherently stronger, allowing the use of lighter gauge, less costly metals
  • Efficiently manufactured from strip steel to any diameter
  • Spiral duct’s smooth interior traps less dust and is easier to clean

Many options and accessories

Spiral pipe provides a solution to almost any system design requirement:

  • Manifold ducts efficiently handle complex distribution requirements and reduce installation time and cost
  • Standard components for every application, such as gored and die formed elbows, tees, laterals, pant wyes, reducers, rectangular to round transitions, pick-up hoods, blast gates, cleanouts, access doors, diverters, and many more
  • Custom components can be engineered for any purpose or specific application

Available in many materials

Spiral pipe meets a broad range of applications:

• Galvanized G60-G901
• Paint Grip A-601
• Poly-vinyl coated1
• Aluminum 3003 H-142
• Stainless 304 or 3163
• Aluminized Steel
• Copper
