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 glass wool

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 glass wool 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 wool 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

Tested: SANS 10177-5 & SANS 10177-10
