Supaflo - The low profile duct
October 5, 2018

Increasingly, architects and builders of residential apartments, hotels and commercial properties are seeking ways to lower construction costs by reducing the size of ceiling voids and therefore minimise the overall building height.

While these cost savings may be appealing to builders and developers, the resulting spatial constraints in ceiling voids impact on the ability of installers to run services including HVAC ducting.

Fantech’s new Supaflo low profile duct system has been designed specifically for restricted ceiling spaces found in buildings. Designed to meet the ventilation requirements of Australia’s modern buildings, the Supaflo system features a low profile design that allows it to be concealed when installed along ceiling voids, cavity walls and other confined spaces. This avoids the need for unsightly bulkheads that impact negatively on the interior space and add unnecessary cost to the build.

Supaflo has been tested to UL181.11-2013 and AS1530.3-1999 and has been shown to comply with the performance under many typical scenarios.

Fast, lightweight installation Supaflo is made of light weight PVC and provides a cost effective alternative to sheet metal ducting. It is also an efficient alternative to flexible round duct that is known for producing high air flow static pressures. Due to its smooth inner surface, Supaflo delivers better air flow and minimises pressure loss. This results in a low pressure, high efficiency system that delivers quiet air extraction from bathrooms, ensuites, kitchens and other internal spaces.

In some applications, the installation of Supaflo low profile ducting may also allow the use of a smaller fan that could reduce energy consumption. The Supaflo system has been engineered for fast and easy installation, and to provide the installer with the flexibility to achieve almost any ducting configuration.

Improved Air Flow The Supaflo range consists of the 165 series (220 x 90mm) and the new 180 series (320 x 76mm) which is the result of extensive research and feedback from the market.

“The new 180 Series has been designed for installations where even greater air flow is required, while maintaining a relatively low, compact profile,” says Wayne Norton, Fantech Marketing Executive.

“We’ve already had a positive response on the new 180 Series, and look forward to continue developing fit for purpose solutions for our customers.”
