Build Plumb Plastics supply a wide range of utility Ducting in coils and lenghts for a variety of applications.
Also known as Ridgicoils or Ridgiduct, utility ducting is a strong yet flexible ducting for underground utilities. The flexibility eliminates the need for special bends and the smooth bore has a low co-efficient of friction for ease of cable installation.
Utility duct coils are available in a range of sizes from 40mm - 140mm (internal diameter) and the 6mtr lengths are available in sizes from 94mm to 300mm (internal diameter)

- What is the meaning of ducting?Ducting refers to the process of channeling air or other substances through a system of ducts or pipes. It is commonly used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to distribute air throughout a building or home. Ducting can also be used in industrial settings to transport gasses or liquids.
- What are the three types of ducting?The three types of ducting are flexible ducting, rigid ducting, and semi-rigid ducting. Flexible ducting is made of a wire coil covered in plastic or foil and is easy to install. Rigid ducting is made of metal and is more durable but harder to install. Semi-rigid ducting is a hybrid of the two, made of a flexible inner layer and a rigid outer layer.
- What is the difference between a pipe and a duct?Pipes are used to transport fluids, such as water or gas, while ducts are used to transport air. Pipes are typically made of metal or plastic, while ducts are made of metal or flexible materials like vinyl or fiberglass. Pipes are usually round or cylindrical in shape, while ducts can be rectangular or circular.
- Can you use PVC pipe for ductwork?While PVC pipes may seem like a cost-effective solution for ductwork, they are not recommended for HVAC systems. PVC pipes are not designed to handle the air pressure and temperature changes that occur in HVAC systems, and can lead to energy loss and even health hazards. It is best to use materials specifically designed for HVAC ductwork.
- What is the purpose of ducting?The purpose of ducting is to transport air, either heated or cooled, from one location to another. It is commonly used in HVAC systems to distribute air throughout a building or home. Ducting can also be used for ventilation, exhaust, and other purposes.
