Dubai, UAE: Unigulf Industries has announced that it will focus on the company’s EASY pre-insulated ducting (PID) system at the 2017 AHR Expo, to be held from January 30 to February 1, 2017, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall, Booth C5150.

Developed for ease of fabrication and installation, EASY pre-insulated panels, the company said, are a composite of aluminum foil and PUR/PIR, are lighter than the traditional metallic ducts, and as a result, it ensures improved load bearing properties and has an impact on weight reduction of buildings and structures. The ducts are reportedly HCFC-free, and are extensively used for residential and commercial HVAC applications. Furthermore, the company added that the panels comply with UL, British Standards and European Standards, and other testing laboratories.

Revealing more features of the duct systems, the company said:

  • The aluminium surface ensures no release of particles, preventing bacterial and fungi growth, and thereby ensuring hygiene and air quality
  • Invisible flanging system ensures low levels of air leaks when compared with conventional ducting systems. Elimination of longitudinal leaks and reduction of ones at transversal junctions. High thermal insulation with closed cell structure and superior thermal conductivity, ƛ 0.021 W/(m°C)
  • The self-extinguishing properties, low-fire participation and no flaming droplets makes it a powerfully fire resistant
  • Easy to transport, it allows fabrication and repairs onsite or at the workshop
  • Lightness facilitates easy installation and lowered weight of structure, while also being cost effective with lower labour time and material
  • CFC-free production raises the level of environment-friendly construction and eligible for Green Building concept
  • Low thermal values and reduced air leakage has a positive impact on energy saving and operational costs
  • Panels are produced within the density range of 45 to 48 kgs/meter cube with +/- 3 kgs tolerance, thermal conductivity being ƛ 0.021 W/(m°C). The panels can be used for applications ranging from -30 to +65 degree C.

“As a long term player in the HVAC industry in the Gulf, our transition into manufacturing was a natural progression.” Prakash Chablani, MD, Unigulf Industries of Unigulf Group. “Having set up our panel manufacturing and duct fabrication facility in the United Arab Emirates, we aim to make this globally available. Our participation at 2017 AHR Expo gives us the perfect opportunity to showcase our latest EASY Pre-insulated Ducting System and we are confident that the targeted visitors to the expo will provide us the required momentum to reach out to international markets.”

Unigulf, which is the distributor for LEAD’AIR in the region, has said that it will also showcase the European manufacturer’s flexible duct connectors, self-adhesives hangers, damper quadrants, splitter damper hardware, access doors, air valves, flanges, corners, regulators, pin spotters, pins and various other sheet metal accessories.
