Our latest innovation wows the crowds at ARBS 2016

Kilargo has once again proven our industry-leading innovation with the launch of our new generation blade design* for intumescent fire dampers (IFDs) at ARBS 2016 today.

In an industry-leading breakthrough, air cuts straight across our new IFD Aero blade, reducing airflow resistance and noise levels in everyday use. It also paves the way for increased energy savings compared with traditional fire damper designs, both intumescent and other types.

The state-of-the-art design is the result of industry feedback and consultation with architects, mechanical engineers and builders, and work by our world-leading R&D Division.

“These fire dampers provide critical seals where ducts for heating, ventilation or air-conditioning pass through fire-resistant walls, floors and ceilings,” said Kilargo National Manager, Colin Moss.

“They need to allow for virtually unobstructed and guaranteed, trouble-free, ventilation every day, while providing total closure in a fire event.

“With its innovative features, the IFD Aero takes effectiveness to a new level,” Colin said.

“It has been rigorously tested in accordance with the latest standards and is fully compliant with all relevant Australian and New Zealand building codes.”

The new blade design will be available across Kilargo’s entire range of wall, floor and ceiling solutions with no extra costs.
