IBD Distribution Case Study

IBD Distribution, the leading provider of sustainable energy efficient heating and ventilation solutions, has completed its first installations of Polypipe Ventilation’s Domus Radial Duct System. The installation has been completed on three properties in Ringwood as part of a whole house air distribution system; it offers an innovative method of connecting individual rooms to an air distribution box using a Ø75mm flexible semi-rigid duct. The Domus Radial Duct System was easy to install and provided IBD with a minimum 50% labour saving on installation compared with traditional MVHR [Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery] duct installations. It was ideal for these properties in Ringwood with its highly insulated, relatively compact timber frame construction and I-Beams that would have restricted the use of traditional ‘branch’ ducting.

Ian Smith, General Manager of IBD, comments: “We always look to provide our customers with the most efficient solutions to their ventilation, heating and cooling requirements. With its high product quality and ease of installation, the Domus Radial Duct System will be our preferred solution for applications of these type of houses under 275m2.”

IBD Distribution is a long-term partner of Polypipe Ventilation, the leading manufacturer of energy-saving domestic and light commercial ventilation systems. The Domus Radial Duct

System has been designed for use with Polypipe’s Mechanical Extraction units and ‘HR’ range of Heat Recovery appliances, which are Energy Saving Trust Best Practice compliant and SAP Appendix Q rated.
