6 Ways Custom Sheet Metal Fab Can Benefit Your Project

Sheet metal fabrication

Sheet metal is a flexible, durable material that can be used for a wide variety of applications. At Custom Aire, we use it in the construction of ductwork for HVAC systems in commercial buildings. We have our own fab shop, which allows us to custom-build components to the exact specifications of any of our HVAC projects.

When it comes to sheet metal fabrication, the benefits of custom are cut and dried. Properly sized components allow the entire system to perform better, while also upholding a high standard of quality and craftsmanship. Read on to learn more about how custom sheet metal fab can benefit your project.

The Custom Difference

Why is custom better? The ability to make parts specifically designed for every inch of the duct network in your facility makes a huge difference in a number of ways, including:

Leak-free ductwork
Parts that are custom-built fit seamlessly into the system. This results in the best-fitting ductwork that eliminates leaks so your entire HVAC system operates better.

Efficiency
A network of leak-free ducts makes it easier for your HVAC system to operate at maximum energy-efficiency, causing less wear and tear on your equipment.

Savings
Your budget will thank you for a more efficient system, too, as this will help to keep utility and operational costs as low as possible.

Faster turnaround
At Custom Aire, because we have our own custom sheet metal fab shop, were able to provide customers with a faster turnaround time to help keep your project on time.

Less waste
The specialized equipment that allows us to produce tailor-made products also helps to reduce material waste.

Specialists
When you live and breathe custom sheet metal as we do at Custom Aire, it builds a team of experts that have your back at any turn. Our highly-skilled fabrication specialists are ready to meet your needs, large or small.

Ductwork Options

You have a couple of different options to choose from when it comes to constructing ductwork in your commercial building. The more traditional option is the rectangular build, while more recently you’ve probably seen a lot more spiral ductwork designs.

Spiral ductwork

With properly sized parts, both can be great solutions for your project, but research does suggest that the spiral build is more efficient due to lower leakage rates and increased airflow. Additionally, eliminating the sharp edges found in rectangular systems also cuts down on noise, for a quieter indoor atmosphere. Learn more about spiral ductwork here.

At Custom Aire, we do a great job of offering each project the best in craftsmanship, quality, and performance. Custom sheet metal fabrication is one of the keys that makes that possible. To learn more about our capabilities and how they can help your project, contact us today.
