How to select Duct Guard

Duct Guard is part of the ventilation supplies that helps to protect the system from loose objects, dirt and debris. Equipping your duct work with such accessory will ensure its safety and correct operation. The following guide will help you select the perfect duct guard to fit your needs.

The first and most important factor to consider when selecting a duct guard is its size. If such item is too small for the flexible ducting, it won’t stop dangerous objects on their way to ventilation applications. This will result in their damage and possible reparations or even replacements. A larger guard, on the other hand, won’t simply fit into the duct work. To know the duct guard of which size you need, measure the diameter of your duct work. The most common guards are compatible with 4”, 6” or 8” diameter inlets.

The next factor to consider is the size of holes on the guard. The smaller such holes are the less dirt and loose objects will get into the system. However, be careful not to select the guard with the tiniest net. The only thing it will do is slow the air flow, which will result in reinforced operation of fans and other applications.

The material from which the guard is made is something to pay closer attention to. It needs to be temperature, pressure and water resistant to feature long-lasting operation. If your future duct guard is made from ordinary steel, it will soon be covered in rust and will need a replacement. To protect yourself from replacing the guard often, select the item that is made from zinc chromate plated steel. Such covering was designed to withstand harsh environments. In addition to that, zinc chromate plated steel is stronger and more durable.

When you have specified the diameter of your duct guard and the size of its holes, it is time to select the installation option. It all depends on where you want to install it and what applications will such guard protect. The principal locations for duct guard installation are the system’s inlets. In order to double the protection, you can install the guard on outlets as well. This will ensure that no loose objects will escape from the system to damage the applications.

After considering all of the factors you may still have some questions about the duct guard. For example, is it possible to install a guard with the already existing system? In order to do that, you will need to free up the access to the inlet or outlet of the system, and ensure that you have all of the necessary mounting equipment to fix the guard.
