Division 22 23 Ebook Page 170 Nova Southeastern University Selects Duct Board

Durable air stream surface Mold protection from an EPA- registered biocide; also listed as Microbial Resistant by GEI Air velocities up to 6,000 feet per minute Efficient noise dampening and absorption Easy fabrication and installation Code compliance Weston Gunnarson, Project Manager for Hill York, says one unusual aspect of the recent projects at NSU is placement of the return-air ducts in the music building. "For ultra-quiet operating performance, the return openings are down near the bottom of the walls to get them as far away from the cooling equipment as possible." A challenge for construction in humid south Florida is avoiding mold growth before the building is closed in and conditioned. "We have never had a problem with Owens Corning duct board," says Gunnarson.
