Single-Wall, Round and Flat Oval Duct and Fittings

McGill AirFlow's single-wall, round duct is fabricated to exacting tolerances that make it easy to assemble and essentially leak free. Round duct costs less to install than rectangular duct and because of its efficiency, a round duct system offers lower operating costs. Three standard types of single-wall, round duct are available: spiral lockseam, spiral lockseam with a standing rib, and longitudinal seam.

Uni-Seal™ Duct
Spiral lockseam duct is constructed with an interlocking helical seam that runs the length of the duct. The lockseam is formed on the outside of the duct, providing a smooth interior that results in minimal friction loss. 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.

Uni-Rib® Duct
Spiral lockseam duct is available with a standing rib. This external stiffening rib gives the duct strength and rigidity equal to that of heavier gauges of standard spiral lockseam duct.

Longitudinal Seam Duct (fully welded or pipelock)
Longitudinal seam duct is available for applications that require very heavy gauges or large diameters. The longitudinal seam of the duct is solid welded. Construction meets or exceeds HVAC Construction Standards, 1995 Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association (SMACNA).

A pipelock construction is used for some lighter gauge duct (residential and light commercial) and some PVC-coated metal duct.
