- Electromagnetic interference (EMI) ducting that provides no less than 75db of shielding effectiveness in the 100MHz-1GHz range, with 65db shielding past that to 12GHz
- Infrared reflective (IR) ducting that provides no less than 42% reflectance in the 620-860nm range (383 Green) and 72% reflectance in the 600-900nm range (686A Tan)
MILITARY SPECIFICATION DUCT COLORS
Ducts Unlimited works with ALL the color charts from ALL the world’s militaries. Whatever your requirement: DLA (Defence Logistic Agency), FS595 (Federal Standard 595, Rev. B) or RAL (German Institute for Quality Assurance and Certification), we can supply ducts in those exact colors.
MILITARY SPECIFICATION HVAC AND ECU SYSTEM DUCTS
Although outlet ports for HVAC and ECU systems are largely standardized within any one army, their specifications can vary from country to country, and sometimes even among services within a country. Ducts Unlimited supplies to a variety of fighting forces worldwide, so it is important that our range of ducts be as versatile as possible. With access to virtually all HVAC and ECU systems specifications, and with their country-to-country interconnect standards to tents or trailers available, Ducts Unlimited can always “cuff” ducts to the requirements of the appliance they will be attached to. From a simple belt and buckle to a more elaborate stainless steel twist-and-lock, a secure fit is assured every time. We also provide insulation where specified, in polyester fabrics or foams up to 1in thick.
