ProGuard film is placed over the opening of ductwork during storage and transportation, protecting it from the dust and dirt that can lead to poor indoor air quality. More >>
HVAC Solutions with green results
Worldwide, 30-40% of all primary energy is used in buildings. Of this, up to 50% in Australia is used for heating and cooling commercial buildings alone.
Many of the green building products offered by Ductware will help you achieve points on the Green Building Council of Australia's Green Star - Office rating system.
Here's information about how we can help in the Indoor Environment Quality category.
Green Star Rating - Independent Product Reviews
Some of our products have been independently assessed against the Green Building Council of Australia's Green Star rating system. You can download a review to learn how the product complies with the Green Star rating system and how it delivers credits towards a Green Star rating. A compilation of all the reviews in one document is also available.

Green Star Rating - Product Information and Technical Data
Our products can be used to support various aspects of Green Star credits. The table below gives an overview of the contribution specific products make to each credit.
|Title||Credit no.||Contribution||Specific products|
|Air Change Effectiveness||IEQ-2||By reducing leaks and improving the flow of air through ductwork, the air change effectiveness of a mechanically air-conditioned space can be optimised, improving indoor air quality.||Connection systems|
|Thermal Comfort||IEQ-9||By reducing leaks and improving the effectiveness of duct insulation, internal temperatures are easier to maintain.||Gripnail internal duct insulation, Ductmate connectors and sealants.|
|Volatile Organic Compounds||IEQ-13||HVAC sealants and adhesives free of VOCs will maintain indoor air quality||PROseal, FIBERseal|
|Mould Prevention||IEQ-15||Use a duct sealant with additives to reduce mildew growth.||PROseal & FIBERseal duct sealant is mildew resistant.|
|Internal noise levels||IEQ-12||By using a flexible duct connector and a turning vane and rail system reduces vibration transfer and thus internal noise levels can minimised.||Prorail Turning vane and Proflex duct connector|
