Rectangular Ducting 204 X 60mm


What is rectangular ducting? 

Rectangular ducting is among the most suitable options for fitting in kitchens that are hidden over wall units, inside walls or ceiling voids. The rectangular duct options are popular for their low profile, which makes them a popular choice by many. While round ducting offers a large female end and a small male end that both slot together, rectangular duct solutions work the opposite way. The male end is small while the large ends are female. They fit in together nice and easy. 

How to use rectangular duct 

Some of the most popular rectangular plastic tube choices are 110 x 54, 204 x 60, and 220 x 90. The 204 x 60mm rectangular vent duct is ideal for such applications that need lower extraction rates. Great examples of areas where rectangular ducting is most commonly used include bathrooms, toilets, and utility rooms. One of the greatest advantages is that the product offers the opportunity for maximum concealing in small spaces, eliminating the risk of overcrowding.

Why choose plastic ducting?

Are you questioning whether plastic ducting is the right choice for you? Rectangular plastic ducting comes with a number of benefits. Plastic ventilation ducting is one of the most lightweight choices that also comes with an easy and stress-free installation process. It’s easy to manage and cut without the use of sophisticated and advanced tools. It’s also an extremely long-term solution as there’s no risk of corrosion over time. If you need to switch between a round plastic duct and a rectangular plastic duct, it can be easily done.

When you’ve selected the right rectangular plastic ducting sizes you’ll be able to enjoy an airtight solution that provides maximum efficiency. However, there are a few things to consider when working with plastic ventilation ducting:

  • Make sure there is enough power provided to the air movement unit to transfer air via the entire system.
  • Make use of plastic duct sealant where necessary to seal fittings and duct efficiently. If you use self-tapping screws, avoid over-tightening. 
  • Remember that a large number of bends in a system will lead to a slower air transfer and will affect the overall performance of the system. 
  • Make sure the plastic duct is installed in a way that ensures the duct runs away from the unit. This will prevent condensation from reaching the fan.
  • It’s best to keep the intake and the extract separated. Placing them close together could lead to the intake consuming the stale and spent air.

Make sure that you’ve carefully read all installation guides and instructions before using the product. This will help you save time, money, and effort while at the same time will allow you to get the most of the plastic ducting and any other product that you may choose from our catalogue.
