At The Cincinnatus Group, we bring Six Sigma & Lean Manufacturing to the fabrication of HVAC ductwork, ranging from traditional rectangular duct and fittings to spiral and round duct, as well as ductwork in specialty metals such as galvanized G-90, stainless steel, aluminum, and more.
To assure quality, consistency, and fast turnaround on all orders, we’ve developed our submittals package around 3rd Edition SMACNA STANDARDS.
What are submittals, and why are they important to doing the job right, first time and every time?
In construction, submittals are documents submitted by the contractor to the architect or design professional for approval of various products or systems to be used in a project. They consist of specifications that define how products will be manufactured and whether they conform to industry specifications for the intended application.
Submittals are an important communications tool, a way of documenting materials, dimensions, how products connect and integrate into the project as a whole, as well as their relation to accepted industry standards.
When it comes to HVAC duct fabrication, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has accredited the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association (SMACNA) as the standards-setting organization for the industry.
SMACNA standards and manuals address all aspects of the sheet metal industry, from duct fabrication and installation to air pollution control, energy recovery, and roofing.
At TCG Duct, our standards and suite of submittals adhere to 3rd Edition SMACNA standards. The third edition of the HVAC Duct Construction Standards – Metal and Flexible is for use in commercial and institutional duct construction. It contains tables and details for constructing ductwork for ½” to 10″ wg positive and negative pressures, as well as an engineering and design chapter with additional information for design professionals, double-wall construction details, casing construction details, and various accessory items.
The fabrication of ductwork to professional standards provides an exceptional benefit to TCG’s family of contractors and installers: it saves them money and helps improve their bottom line.
Mistakes in duct sizing and sealing cause poor HVAC performance. Comfort and energy efficiency are what designers are buying, and if the installed sheet metal fails to deliver, contractors can find themselves wasting time and money on remedial fixes, or at worst on the losing end of a lawsuit.
Taking shortcuts with “fly by the seat of your pants” fabrication doesn’t save money. What may seem like a quick solution during installation often contributes to a shorter life for HVAC units, including pressure differences that can cause distracting noises and slammed doors.
Even high-efficiency air conditioning needs to work harder, longer, and costs more due to badly designed delivery systems.
At TCG, our designers work hand-in-glove with our duct fabricators, making sure that every order adheres to industry standards and is designed to provide for the comfort, health, and energy efficiency of the building in which it will be installed.
