Double-Wall, Round Duct
McGill AirFlow's double-wall, round duct is fabricated to exacting tolerances that make it easy to assemble and essentially leak free. This insulated duct provides excellent acoustical and thermal control with the efficient airflow performance of single-wall round duct. Three standard types of double-wall, round duct are available: spiral lockseam (Acousti-k27®), spiral lockseam with a standing rib (Uni-Rib-k27®), and longitudinal seam (Longitudinal Seam-k27®).
Spiral lockseam duct is constructed with an interlocking helical seam that runs the length of the duct's outer pressure shell. This seam increases the duct's structural strength and rigidity so that it can be used in lighter gauges than rectangular or longitudinal seam duct, making it less expensive, easier to handle, and easier to install. Another factor which makes spiral lockseam duct economical is that it can be fabricated in lengths of 20 feet or greater. These longer sections of duct mean fewer joints and faster installation.
Spiral lockseam duct is available with a standing rib on the outer pressure shell. This external stiffening rib gives the duct strength and rigidity equal to that of heavier gauges of standard spiral lockseam duct.
Longitudinal seam duct is available for applications that require very heavy gauges or large diameters. The longitudinal seam of the duct's outer pressure shell is solid welded.
