CCL's new tecstrip offers a "green" solution to duct support insulation
Now available from Contract Components Ltd (CCL) is new Tecstrip Flat Phenolic Insulating Strip. This CFC free environmentally friendly product, offers a "green" solution to the requirement for structural insulation where rectangular ducts are supported on overhead hangers and brackets.
Manufactured in class 'O' rated fire resistant, high density structural phenolic foam, the new CCL range is fully tested to the requirements of BS 476. Not only is Tecstrip three times more efficient than wood as a thermal insulation material - it is also cheaper than hardwood and makes no contribution to the destruction of the rain forests!
Moisture resistance is also excellent due to the closed cell structure of the material.
CCL Tecstrip comprises a structural phenolic foam with a nominal density of 60Kg/m3 and an outer class 'O' rated reinforced foil vapour barrier. The composition is light in weight, while offering excellent tensile and cross break strength characteristics.
The product will be available from all branches in CCL's national distribution network, supplied as standard in one metre lengths. It is offered in two widths (50mm and 75mm) and three thicknesses (25mm, 38mm and 50mm).
Application is simplicity itself. A tecstrip length in the required width and thickness, is cut to size and fixed to the channel, or angle iron bearer. The duct support bracket can then be fitted with the Tecstrip eliminating any cold bridge between the outer surface of the duct and the support. For larger duct sections two or more pieces of Tecstrip can be joined together prior to insulation.
