Ductsox: Ductwork Suspension

October 13, 2008


The patent-pending 4x2 Suspension System™ is a hanger system for larger fabric ductwork diameters in open architecture ceilings. It simulates an aesthetic inflated appearance even when heating-cooling air handlers are idle. It supports 50- to 60-inch diameter ductwork, and can be used for uniform transitions from large to small fabric air dispersion systems. The system uses dual-tension cables to support duct clasps at the 11- and 1-o’clock positions, while the lightweight, sculpted aluminum brackets support the 10- and 2-o’clock positions with D-ring clips. The result is a perpetually inflated appearance with a significantly reduced inflation surge and popping sound common to fabric duct systems during HVAC equipment startup, said the company. The suspension system hangers come standard in a solid light gray, black, charcoal, or white powder-coated finish. Custom colors are available to coordinate with duct or interior design colors.
