X-Flex (Insulated)

Rickard’s X-Flex is constructed to be durable, safe and economical.

The materials, adhesives, quality manufacturing and rigorous testing procedures ensure X-flex is always strong and safe. Rickard’s X-flex is flame retardant and will cease burning after being exposed to a flame. Rickard’s focus on efficiency ensures X-Flex is economically priced without sacrificing quality.
There are two options available: X-Flex Insulated Standard and X-Flex Insulated Premium.

  • The Standard option uses 100% polyester, thermally bonded, nonwoven material between the inner and outer layers of foil.
  • The Premium option has a 25mm thick layer of fibreglass with a density of 18kg/m3.

 X-Flex: durable, safe, economical.
Rickard X-Flex (Insulated)

INNER CORE
Foil
Two layers of aluminium foil bonded to a PET layer for strength. Total thickness 30 microns.

Wire
1mm spring steel wire

Adhesive
Water-based, Acrylic adhesive. Fire retardant containing no flammable solvents.

INSULATION
25mm layer of polyester (standard option) or fibreglass (premium option)

OUTER CORE
Foil
Aluminium foil bonded to a layer of PET for strength. Total thickness 20 microns.

Adhesive
Water-based, Acrylic adhesive. Fire retardant containing no flammable solvents.

INNER CORE
A helically wound strip of PET reinforced aluminium foil with a 75% overlap. 1mm spring wire is encapsulated by the foil and glued with a Water-based, Acrylic adhesive. Maximum constructed thickness 60 microns.
The sandwich construction of the PET, foil membrane, combined with a double layer and encapsulated spring wire creates an extremely tough flexible membrane.

INSULATION
25mm layer of polyester (standard option) or fibreglass (premium option) sandwiched between an inner layer of flex and an outer layer of foil. The combination of the air gap between the inner and outer flex, the glass wool and the air trapped inside the insulation material creates an effective insulation layer.

OUTER CORE
A helically wound strip of PET reinforced aluminium foil with 75% foil overlap and glued with a Water-based, Acrylic adhesive. Maximum constructed thickness 40 microns.

LENGTHS

Standard length: 10m
Special lengths are available for larger orders. Please contact your local salesman or email sales@rickardair.com.

For use with VAV or CAV supply or extract systems. Rickard recommends maximum lengths between the duct and diffuser of 1.5m. Longer lengths waste energy and result in large static pressure regains when a VAV diffuser damper closes. These high pressures at minimum can result in noise and over cooling.

X-Flex (Insulated): Sizes 150-350mm.
Jubilee Clamps: Sizes 150-350mm.

FIRE RATING

Adhesive
Water-based, Acrylic adhesive. Fire retardant containing no flammable solvents.

Insulation
100% polyester, thermally bonded, nonwoven, 25mm thick.
