Since 1987, Sheet Metal Werks has expanded to meet growing customer demand and now operates from an 80,000-square-foot facility with the ability to handle large custom jobs for HVAC ductwork installations in various settings.
In late 2020 and into 2021, Thermaduct fabricator, Sheet Metal Werks, partnered with Hill Company to bring our outdoor rectangular system to a government facility installation in Dupage County, Illinois. Replacing their previous system because of concerns of air quality in the building, Thermaduct was chosen to provide a smooth aluminum, fiber free duct interior that does not support mold growth. With the large dimensions required to supply the building’s HVAC needs, Thermaduct’s pre-insulated lightweight nature drastically reduced the building loads on the project while providing an R-12 KoolDuct insulated value.
Working closely together, Sheet Metal Werks and Hill were able to prefabricate and minimize connections for field installation and allow for smooth crane lifts on the jobsite. This careful coordination made for each of the lifts to operate smoothly and minimized issues during the installation.
