Mastic Calculator

While the rest of the world has been getting back into the groove of work for 2020, Kilargo has been busy producing a new feature for our IFD range to make your life a little easier.

Consumable products can be wasteful if not utilised correctly. To ensure you aren’t wasting time, money and materials, we have developed the IFD Mastic Calculator which compliments our Intumescent Fire Damper installations.

Before you install a Kilargo Intumescent Fire Damper, you can pre-calculate precisely how much mastic is required to install your product. Less mess, less waste!

Now that we have saved you some time by creating a great new tool to use, why not take a moment to check out the calculator? 

You can find it located on each of our product pages or the main IFD Product portal.

IFD Low Loss Damper

As many of you are aware, the IFD Low-Loss has been out for several months now.  The product has been a fantastic new addition to our product line.

The development of the Low-Loss damper has been a much sought-after improvement needed in the industry for many years with many of the current lines of intumescent dampers not changing for more than 20 years. The IFD-LL was greeted with a very positive, warm welcome across the entire HVAC industry.

With Australian & International standards changing, we needed to ensure that our product would not only be an improvement to design and our range but ensure future proofing for further development.

A significant part of the installation of fire dampers includes the requirement of an Installation Label outlined in AS1682.2.

Development of the label required several months of testing, proofing, redevelopment and eventual release. Now that the kinks have been ironed out, Kilargo has a well-tested and proven IFD Installation Label for our fire dampers. The installer labels are fully compliant with the latest standard, simple to use and give our installers a little more convenience when installing the product.

Each label is a dual-peel system, pre-attached to the damper, with a section for installers to enter their name & licence information and relevant dates. Once completed, it can then be peeled again and applied to the appropriate surface for inspection purposes.

We’re all about smart, simple solutions in the HVAC industry and invite you to take a look at our product & installation label at our local distributor or from your local Kilargo sales specialist.

IFD Low-Loss: Dropping the Pressure

Introducing: The IFD-LL Pressure Drop Calculator

 

The modern-day calculator may have been replaced by smarter technologies; however, this calculator has been specifically designed to support the specification of IFD’s into your projects. 

 

Results generated within the calculator are based on testing completed at ViPAC earlier this year during the initial release of the Low-Loss Fire Dampers as a part of our product compliance.

 

Simply select a diameter, input airflow and the results are immediately presented in a clear & concise manner. It’s as easy as that!

 

Our Calculator is now available for our Circular Low-Loss Fire Dampers, so before you start specifying be sure to open our Pressure Drop Calculator for the most accurate information available.
