Round Connections

 
METU-SYSTEM Round Air-duct Connections

A quick and uncomplicated installation of circular ventilation ducts on site is an undeniable economic and practical advantage.

Minimum air-tightness classes C (DIN EN 12237) and ATC3 (DIN EN 16798-3).

Unless indicated otherwise, the diameters always correspond to the inner diameters of the ducts.

What differentiates the AF, LF, BF and UF flanges is the way they are fixed into the circular ducts. They can still be combined with each other (connecting an AF flange with an LF flange for example) as they have all been designed to be assembled together with SR joining clips.

In most cases your first choices would be the MU Overcollars and the AF Circular Flanges.

AF Circular Flanges
Most popular flange allowing to connect round ducts together.
Ø 200 to 3000 mm
Air-tightness class C (DIN EN 12237)
Air-tightness class ATC3 (DIN EN 16798-3)
Assembly with SR joininig clips

 

LF Circular Flanges
To connect ducts and fittings with tured-out edges (Vanstone) together.
Ø 200 to 3000 mm
Air-tightness class C (DIN EN 12237)
Air-tightness class ATC3 (DIN EN 16798-3)
Assembly with SR Joininig Cips

 

BF Circular Flanges
To connect round ducts together. These flanges enter deeper into the ducts, translating into more flexibility.
Ø 200 to 3000 mm
Air-tightness class C (DIN EN 12237)
Air-tightness class ATC3 (DIN EN 16798-3)
Assembly with SR Joininig Cips

UF Circular Flanges
To connect round ducts together. This UF flange requires more work than the others including the application of a sealant.
For duct-Ø from 200 to 3000 mm
Air-tightness class C (DIN EN 12237), ATC3 (DIN EN 16798-3)
Assembly with SR Joininig Cips

SR Joining Clips
Allow to assemble the AF, UF, LF and BF flanges together.
Must be ordered with gasket in order to achieve the air-tightness class C / ATC3

 

MU Overcollars / Quick Sleeves
Economical connections for small round duct.
Duct-Ø from 71 to 315 mm
Air-tightness D (DIN EN 12237) or ATC2 (DIN EN 16798-3)

PF Pressed Flanges
For duct diameters from 80 to 200 mm
Air-tightness class C (DIN EN 12237) or ATC 3 (DIN EN 16798-3)
Assembly with SS joining clips

SS Joining Clips
For the assembly of ducts fitted with PF flanges.
Must be ordered with gasket in order to achieve the air-tightness class C / ATC3

Properties of an ideal air-duct

Round or Rectangular?
Here are some thoughts on the subject.

Screws or Rivets?

Duct Tapes

Why not use laser-welded ducts instead of spiral ducts as standard?

In view of the several flange types, the different materials and the numerous diameters, circular flanges are most of the time manufactured "just-in-time".

Returns of round duct connections (i.e. flanges, joining clips and overcollars) are excluded.
