Heating and Ventilation

STR-750, Square to Round Duct Former

E & S Heating and Ventilation received delivery of their STR-750, Square to Round Duct Former on 13th June. Operating since 1972, E & S provides ductwork contracting services to the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) industry and prides itself on being at the forefront of ductwork manufacturing technology and investment. Investing in the STR-750 will enhance production output by forming square to round duct transitions in less than 2 minutes.

Celebrating Four Years at Elge House

HVAC machinery manufacturers Firmac is celebrating four years at Elge House. The purpose built factory also houses Firth Sheet Metal which was established almost 50 years ago.

Ambassador to Qatar visits Firmac

Project Qatar 2013 closes on a high note.

The Firmac stand was a popular destination for visitors to Project Qatar 2013. Delegates were keen to hear about the latest machine, the STR-750 square to round duct former, along with the ever popular ADF, Mini-Line and Nu-Loc duct seamer.

Lew Firth, MD, commented, “The exhibition gave us the opportunity to introduce the new STR-750, square to round duct former, to our customers in Qatar and we were very pleased with the number of visitors who came to the stand to hear about it.”

The UK Ambassador to Qatar, Michael O’Neill, visited the stand to meet the team and hear about Firmac’s export success in the Middle East.

The exhibition which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year surpassed all expectations, including its previous edition in 2012, receiving more than 45,000 visitors.

Firmac will be exhibiting at the highly successful Project Qatar Exhibition, 6-9 May 2013 at the Doha Exhibition Centre, Qatar.

Square to Round Ducts in 2 minutes

The STR-750, Square to Round Duct Former from Firmac has revolutionised square to round duct forming. With only one join and no re-shaping required, duct transitions can be produced in less than two minutes.

The duct former is an ideal investment for duct workshops who want to increase output without impacting on floor space as the former can be folded away when not in use.

Roux Young, owner of Venteck Ductwork Ltd., explains how productivity has increased significantly since introducing the STR-750. “Previously we used the folder to produce square to round transitions which was labour intensive and time consuming. The process often distorted the shape of the duct which meant that we had to spend time reshaping each piece to produce an accurate shape.

With the STR-750 we can produce accurate shapes very quickly. We’ve increased daily output from 30 to a massive 200! The machine is easy to use and move around and we’ve found it particularly useful to take on site to make ductwork and insulation cladding".

Firmac’s agents in Russia, Globalvent, have recently exhibited at Climate World in Moscow.
