This flexible duct is made of a robust polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sections. These materials are designed to operate optimally under a temperature range from -20°C up to 80° C+. This is perfect for low temperatures and above room temperature, but if you prefer ducting that is more versatile then we’d suggest you look at some of the aluminium ducting. If, however, the temperatures you’re working with are between -20 and +80, then this might be the one you need.
2) Self-supporting duct
Another thing that makes stayput flexible ducting so good is its ability to support itself. Despite being available as a five-metre long flexible duct. In other words, it can accommodate and support its weight in close range distances without the need for additional supports – staying true to its name! Additionally, you can bend the ducting into a number of shapes to help you navigate tight spots. This handy feature makes the Stayput flexible duct the best pick for workshop dust extraction ducting in the industry. More importantly, this ducting system allows you to tackle hard-to-reach spots or tasks with ease.
3) Adjustable diameter
Having a flexible duct that gives room for modifications in extraction capacity is a blessing for most workplaces. This means that you can adapt the ducting to your extraction needs without risking the duct becoming clogged. Adjustments can be made by hand without the need for tools. Simply grab the duct and twist it in a clockwise direction to make it wider and larger. Twisting it counter-clockwise to make the duct smaller and narrower. Most types of Stayput have an adjustable diameter of plus or minus 30% of the stated diameter. Standard Stayput is sold as 100mm diameter flexible ducting and is suitable for moderate tasks. For heavier duty operations, 125mm and 150mm diameters are available.
4) Resistant to acids and chemicals
Stayput has excellent chemical and acid resistance due to its extremely strong PVC material construction. The interior lining is very strong and can withstand any abrasive actions from acidic chemicals and dust. As a result, the ducting is great for handling or extracting caustic exhaust fumes, paint and solvent particles, and metallic dust.
5) Self-extinguishing feature
Stayput flexible ducting has a medium-weight wall constructed with polyvinyl chloride materials, with self-extinguishing properties, reducing the risk of fire and explosion.
