A contractor from Virginia, recently contracted MKT Metal Manufacturing, Inc., York, PA, to supply gasketed spiral duct for a Virginia Beach, VA, Whole Foods project. The owners and design engineers wanted a clean profile for the duct run. They insisted on a sealed, flangeless spiral system. Being a fasttrack project, the contractor needed a local manufacture that could meet the time constraints. MKT was able to estimate, manufacture and ship the product in very short notice. MKT is a licensed manufacture of SPIRAmir™ gasketed spiral duct, a patented system using “rolling O-Ring” technology.
Quotes From the Field
I got great service from Rex Daniels, MKT’s Spiral Production Manager. Rex took time to call me before our spiral was delivered to give us some very helpful installation tips.
This was the first time we used SPIRAmir™ gasketed spiral. We liked the simple design of the gasket—how it “rolls” into place. It didn’t feel like we were fighting against it like other brands of gasketed duct we’ve installed before.
~ Bubba, Field Foreman
Quotes From the Contractor
MKT came through on a tight schedule. Their SPIRAmir™ spiral met our customer’s requirements for a “non-flanged” system. We knew it would be a challenge at 40″ diameter but MKT prepared our guys in the field and it went together without a hitch.
It was refreshing to deal with MKT at every level. Unlike other suppliers we had direct communication with all aspects of their service; estimating, production and shipping.
~ Nathan, Project Manager
