Thermal Performance of Q Duct

Q Duct®’s Thermal Performance Proves It Stands Above The Rest

Unmatched thermal performance by Q Duct®’s patented interlocking flange-less connection results in industry-leading low leakage and maximum energy efficiency. Q Duct® is the only known phenolic duct system with no through metal at the connection joint, so it’s lighter than competitors.

Thermal images of Q Duct® show it all when tested side by side with other duct systems. The image below shows the thermal performance comparison images of other outdoor phenolic duct systems. All three systems are moving warm air during cold ambient conditions. The dark colors show cooler surfaces, while the brighter colors show warm surfaces (or thermal loss).
