5 inch duct is one of the most widespread and well-installed sizes of flex duct on the market today, and can be found in a wide array of different workplaces and environments. From functioning as fume transport ventilation to acting as lawn vacuum hose, 5” duct is a critical part of many flexible ducting systems throughout the world. Due to its medium range size, 5” duct is additionally very cost-effective, helping keep the overall duct work cost low, as well as allowing the duct to be more flexible and maneuverable.
“Thermoplastic Flex Medium Duty WE” duct is one example of a premier product capable of being incorporated into applications of all kinds. Composed of thermoplastic rubber with a yellow external wearstrip over a spring still spiral helix, these heavy duty hoses are an exemplar of just how strong and resilient flexible ducting can be. Used in situations featuring large amounts of abrasive material (i.e. wood chips, aluminum shavings, and other materials capable of damaging lesser collection duct materials), these thermoplastic heavy duty hoses make for an ideal type of 5” duct that businesses owners everywhere rely on. What’s more, these ducts are also capable of resisting temperatures as low as - 40 degrees Fahrenheit to as high as + 275 degrees Fahrenheit; an impressive rating that allows these duct to be inserted into some of the most intensive situations out there. Not bad for a length of 5” duct!
