Using Duct Insulation as a Design Element with Microlite® Black PSK Duct Wrap

Colorado State University Urgent Care in Fort Collins, Colorado called for an aesthetically appealing duct system. The solution? Johns Manville Microlite® Black PSK Duct Wrap.

A recent case study from Johns Manville examines how the construction of the Colorado State University Urgent Care in Fort Collins, Colorado called for an aesthetically appealing duct system on the 4th floor due to exposed ceilings.

Since leaving the ducts uninsulated was not an option, the system designer needed a solution that would offer excellent thermal performance as well as elegant aesthetic appeal. To solve this problem, the system was designed with JM’s Microlite® Black PSK Duct Wrap.

This black-coated PSK duct wrap offers a solid black, matte finish with an installed R-value of 4.2. The insulation comes with a matching black tape, to ensure the vapor barrier is completely sealed and there are no disruptions in the black aesthetic. Microlite Black PSK Duct Wrap brought excellent thermal performance coupled with a sleek, black finish to the duct system at the CSU Urgent Care.
