Johns Manville, Denver, CO reports it has made significant improvements to its LinaTex™ textile fiber duct liner.
The company reports it has strengthened the black, high-density glass mat airstream surface, to increase durability and resistance to fiber erosion when exposed to the airstream in commercial duct systems.
The product specification now includes recycled content, making the product more attractive for use in LEED® registered building projects, according to the company. Johns Manville field-tested LinaTex duct liner with over a dozen sheet metal contractors. Contractor feedback was consistent in stating that the tougher mat is highly flexible and will resist pull-through when pinning. Contractors stated that this could significantly lessen the need for repairs, requiring fewer call backs and minimizing product waste.
