Green Credentials

Our high performance, fully compliant, pre-insulated, ductwork systems benefit everyone involved in specifying and delivering more energy efficient construction projects around the world. In the UK, the arguments for developers and investors to design and deliver sustainable solutions for the built environment are becoming more compelling with increasing pressure from:

  • More exacting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) requirements
  • Increased energy costs (expected to increase 80% in the next five years)
  • Specific legislation requiring increased sustainability, energy conservation and reduced carbon footprint – CRC, EPBD, etc

UK guidelines and building regulations now require ductwork to be insulated along its entire length. These requirements include:

  • Approved Document L – Conservation of Fuel and Power
  • The Non-domestic Heating, Cooling and Ventilation and Compliance Guide
  • The TIMSA-HVAC Compliance Guide

The use of Spiralite ducting can, in both new build and retro-fit properties:

Spiralite ductwork saves energy, cuts costs and reduces environmental impact.
