Metal ducting for workshop UK
« on: October 07, 2016, 03:09 PM »
Just wondering where everyone is getting their ducting from in the UK?

Needing quite an extensive selection of parts. Looking to create something similar to the picture attached, if it works.

Thanks in advance.

It's been a while since I bought any but I certainly looked at these folks at the time as I have their site bookmarked http://www.ducting-online.co.uk/Mobile/MBSCCatalog.asp?ActionID=67174912&catid=2285504

Hmmmm.... that's a terrible design for ducting. I suspect that was done for convenience rather than for optimising extraction.

Try http://www.ductstore.co.uk or http://www.ducting-express.co.uk - they are both certain to have everything you need.

Thank-you for the replies so far guys.

Garry I have looked at that reference, and I think that has cleared a few things up.

I may do a floor plan and intended duct if anyone was wanting to critique it before I hit the go on the duct order?

Cheers

I can recommend ducting express.

I don't know much about ducting, but I found them to be very helpful and advised me what I needed. I think the guys name was Graham who I dealt with. He was always able to talk on the phone and replied to emails within 24 hours.

Funny that, I'd spoken with him last week and he's out to see me tomorrow. Top bloke so far and really helpful.

I'd also recommend ductstore (actually PG Fabrications in Essex) Immaculate, precise and tidy work - almost seems a shame to be hiding it behind plasterboard! Extremely helpful and a good price on custom work too! Only -ve was TNT for delivery...
