The "Spiral-Lock (Fiberglass) 1200" flexible duct is ductwork that is well suited for use in extreme temperatures. These flex hoses are made of double-ply wire inserted fiberglass fabric that has been mechanically crimped in a continuous process. This construction makes it the ideal high temperature flexible hose for a variety of fume exhaust applications. The fabric of this hose is colored red, giving it a unique appearance that makes it clearly recognizable from other types of ducting.
This flexible exhaust hose is able to endure physically abrasive conditions. This is thanks to a coated steel wire that frames the body of the hose. The fabric is locked around the wire by a metal clip. This metal clip acts as a wearstrip. A wearstrip is important to have on flex hoses because they offer a better level of resistance to physical abrasions. A flexible duct may be subjected to harm from external conditions, such as being dragged along a rough surface or being hit by loose flying particles like woodchips and pebbles. The metallic wearstrip gives the body of this high temperature flexible hose more durability in physically abrasive conditions. For further protection to protect the wire helix and any equipment attached to the hose, it is also available with a polyurethane clip.
While this flexible exhaust hose can resist harm from external physical sources, it truly shines in extreme temperature conditions. It is able to function in temperatures ranging from -40° F to 1200° F. In fact, the 1200 in this flex hose's name is meant to indicate the highest possible temperature that the hose can endure. The fiberglass fabric allows this hose to handle cold and hot extreme temperatures with ease. This feature makes the hose perfectly suited for fume exhaust applications involving aircraft and automotive vehicles. This high temperature flexible hose can also be used in more industrial settings such as in foundries and chemical plants.
This flexible duct comes in a standard length of 25 feet. It is available in various ID sizes between 3” ID to 12" ID. We make this flexible exhaust hose available in custom ID sizes up to 18" upon request. This is a very flexible hose that can be flexed around as needed. The ends of these each of these hoses are plain cut. If you have any questions about this flexible duct, do not hesitate to contact one of our ducting specialists today.
