Flat Oval Duct Connections
E-Z Flange with Barrel ClampThe E-Z flange with barrel clamp can be factory installed or shipped loose for field installation. A set consists of two E-Z flanges and one barrel clamp. For field installation the installer attaches the E-Z flange to the pipe and fittings. Next the installer applies the gasket to one flange, mates the two flanges together and attaches the barrel clamp. Sheet Metal Connectors, Inc. also installs E-Z flanges. Flanges are fastened and internally sealed on both ends of spiral pipe and fittings.
Standard Spiral Pipe ConnectorPipe to Pipe connections are made by using a fitting size coupling that slips inside the mating pipe sections, as shown below. A stop bead runs around the middle of the coupling to center the coupling in the connection. Secure the connection by installing sheet metal screws through the outer shell of the duct, 1/2 inch from the stop bead.
