Questions & Answers

Q:I need to snake an HVAC duct into a room. There's a limited crawlspace to it that includes a tight turn. I think this would work, but can this be used for heating/cooling?

Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for the question, Roger! Our Aluminum Flex 280-Compressible Flexible Ducts have a temperature rating from -22F to 284F. As long as the heater or cooler operates within these temperatures, the hose should work just fine.

      Manufactured Recommended for dryer
      I was doing some maintenance on our dryer the other day and buried in their installation instructions was a requirement that the dryer be installed with a semi-rigid duct, not the thin foil style that had previously been installed, and now I understand why. This duct is great - the perfect blend of being pretty flexible, enough to manuever around the dryer and up the wall as one continuous piece, but rigid enough that it holds its shape when you bend it into place. It is also expandable, the 9.84 is the maximum length, it actually arrives in a box less than 36 inches long. Very happy with this product and happy to not void my warranty on our dryer!

      Heavy duty duct.
      For when you need a durable, heavy duty flexible vent tube. I'm installing it in the crawl space for a dryer vent that travels 10 feet and needs to withstand occasional repositioning while I work on plumbing and insulation. It is built for higher temperatures and long lasting use. It is semi-rigid that is flexible, yet holds its shape. It should also be critter proof.

      Aluminum Flex 280-Compressible- 4 in. x 9.84 ft. Flexible Duct
      The Rubber-Cal Aluminum Flex 280-Compressible- 4 in. x 9.84 ft. Flexible Duct arrived in very good time and was well packaged. When installing dryer ductwork there are several different products available to use. This flexible single-ply aluminum duct is not only easy to work with around corners and non straight line paths to the outside. It also is extendible to stretch it out to the length that you need and then stays put. Good job, keep up the good work.

      Worked as promise, flexible enough to fit in the tiny space in the cabinet underneath the cooktop.
