ADA Ductboard™ is a lightweight alternative to sheet metal used to provide the distribution of conditioned ventilation to multiple areas. ADA Ductboard™ is easily managed and worked to provide accurate designed ductwork sections with the use of CNC equipment.
Due to the light weight of the panel, the transportation costs are reduced. Onsite delivery and onsite handling of the product can be easily done by a smaller crew with minimal lifting equipment. With these efficiencies comes reduced installation times leading to faster builds and therefore reduction in building construction costs.
The reduced weight also reduces the mass per metre loadings used for AS1170.4 earthquake compliance. The combination of ADA Ductboard™ and ADA’s patented Duct Suspension System which has been through rigorous testing and passed Level 3 in both transverse and longitudinal directions (Level 3 is the highest test for Seismic testing on a world standard), ADA are leading the way in designing innovative approved systems that meet the critical seismic HVAC/R design requirements of a building project.
Here's a couple of behind the scene photos of how things are nicely coming along at the Nairne Shopping Centre.
