RECOMMENDED USES

While it may be used almost anywhere a flexible duct connector is needed, THERMAFAB is particularly suited to those applications exposed to higher temperatures, or where the risk of fire is concerned. THERMAFAB's extremely low smoke emission alleviates the possibility of noxious fumes from the connector being added to the duct air stream in the event of a fire.
