Pre-insulated phenolic ductwork makes its way into the HVAC industry

In Elgin, Illinois, communications equipment company Motorola Solutions was planning an update to a 300,000-square-foot building that would be used for corporate training and manufacturing. While the building was relatively new, Motorola invested $18 million in upgrades to bring the facility’s components to “state-of-the-art” status — one of which was its HVAC system.

The original HVAC ductwork was fabricated with galvanized sheet metal and wrapped with insulation, but when Arlington Heights, Illinois-based sheet metal fabrication contractor Sheet Metal Werks was hired to make and supply the new ductwork, Sheet Metal Werks President Kevin Ryan suggested a product that steps away from industry tradition: pre-insulated phenolic ductwork.
