E.

The design documents shall indicate the clear inside dimensions of lined or double wall ducts.

F.

The designer shall determine the type of sealant required for the project and include in the specifications.

G.systems.

Refer to DC Standard 15010 for the requirements to determine the appropriate system for the project.

H.With respect to rectangular ductwork, the ratio of duct height to duct width shall not exceed 2:1.

In extraordinary conditions, this ratio may be extended to 2.5:1.

I.The designer shall determine if duct testing is required.

J.

The designer shall determine if the ductwork is to be painted and if so, amend the specifications to include a finish on the sheet metal that will accept field painting.

K.

This standard assumes standard galvanized duct for air distribution systems.

The designer is required to ascertain the suitability of this product for extraordinary applications, such as fume hoods, swimming pool ventilation, etc.

L.Two types of control dampers are specified.

For applications where dampers are exposed to outside air, and are normally closed 75% of the time or have a life safety requirement of not freezing in a position, use the insulated damper.

For all other dampers use the non-insulated damper.

M.All main electric rooms that are ventilated shall have filtered (30% efficiency) air.

N.All return air shall be ducted, plenum return is not acceptable.

PART 2 PRODUCTS

A.Galvanized sheet metal shall comply with ASTM A 924, lock forming quality, with G60 zinc coating for interior, dry duct and G90 zinc coating for exterior ducts and any ductwork susceptible to moisture, in accordance with ASTM A 653.

2.2 RECTANGULAR DUCT FABRICATION

A.Except as otherwise indicated, fabricate rectangular ducts with galvanized sheet steel, in 1-3 through 1-20, including associated details.

Conform to the requirements in the referenced standard for metal thickness, reinforcing types and intervals, tie rod applications, and joint types and intervals.

Minimum duct gauge is 26.

B.Cross break or bead duct sides that are 11" and larger and are 20 gauge or less, with more than 4 Figure 1-8, regardless if insulated.

C.Fabricate elbows, transitions, offsets, branch connections, and other duct construction in Figures 2-1 through 2-9, with the following modifications:
