Insulation protects the airflow of your heater hose by adding an extra layer to prevent the heat from escaping from the hose. For additional protection, double-ply options are available to protect your heat ducting from abrasion. Our insulated hoses stay flexible even with the added insulation.

This is key because it allows the flexible ductwork to function as a kind of lightweight hose that can be applied to a multitude of situations.
Heat ducting can also be outfitted with a plethora of different accoutrements in order to facilitate greater usability. Reducing and enlarging cuffs are common types of endcaps that allow commercial ducts of different sizes to be linked together.

Additionally, bridge and screw cuff connectors are an excellent and readily available means of attaching firmly lengths of flexible heating duct to one another. These types of attachments are specifically designed to function in places where the connectivity of your heat ducting needs to be absolutely assured.
