Q Shed® Effectively Maintains Duct Integrity
Q Shed® is an optional sloped roof that is an optional add on for the prevention of water accumulation and increased thermal energy performance. Many traditional outdoor duct systems suffer from water pooling on top of the ducts. Moreover, this results in mold, mildew, and rust, which can eventually make its way into the duct system and diminish the air quality of the system. Additionally, Q Duct®’s patent-pending sloped roof design ensures water quickly sheds from the duct surface.
