In 1981, Ductmate (Europe) began to manufacture and market slide-on flange systems for rectangular sheet metal air ducts. Ductmate was the first system to offer an integrated sealant within the flange system, eliminating the need to seal the ducting cross-joints, which would normally be done manually. Ductmate provides cost-effective products which save customers time and money, using efficient, well-conceived designs.
Ductmate’s sister product, Spiralmate – for circular ducting – was introduced in 1991.
We continued expansion of the Ductmate flange system in 1997 with the introduction of the DM45 flange. This 45mm design allows slide-on flanges to be used on the full complement of ductwork constructed to B&ES DW/144 Second Edition 2013. Further development means the existing rectangular flange connection range is now extended, with additional options of 20 and 30mm available in line with standard European sizes. And, launching in summer 2015, the 20L ‘long’ corner offers significantly more stability and rigidity for smaller ductwork options. We believe this makes Ductmate the most comprehensive flange system on the market, with five different flange profiles.
These products, coupled with our range of access doors to suit rectangular, circular and flat oval ducting, are very popular with customers and engineers throughout the HVAC market, both at home and overseas.
We will continue to invest in research and development to design new, intuitive products for our customers and are committed to fulfilling the needs of the industry. We’re determined to maintain the high levels of quality and service for which we’re renowned.
