Ductsox: Fabric Duct Tensioning Device
SkeleCore™ is an in-duct cylindrical tensioning device (CTD) that eliminates sagging and wrinkling. It maintains an inflated appearance, even during idle air handler periods, and it eliminates the “popping” sound associated with equipment start-up. End caps also have a taut, flatter appearance. The CTD consists of a 3/4-inch-diameter, lightweight aluminum tube supporting a series of 3/16-inch-diameter powder-coated steel, 360-degree connecting rings, which are precisely sized to administer tension on the inner fabric duct walls for a permanently inflated, streamlined appearance. Its backbone tubes are 6 feet long and designed to easily snap into the support rings and couplers with a spring-loaded, quick-connect/release mechanism. SkeleCore is available in 15 diameters ranging from 8 to 36 inches. According to the company, it is compatible with all cylindrical fabric duct track or cable suspension systems, and is a retrofit replacement for all other fabric duct brands.
