THE PRODUCT

DuctBoard™ is a proprietary, patent pending sheathing panel for use on floors in both residential and commercial applications.  The product has incredible strength and also provides for superior air distribution by providing integral supply and return plenums.

DuctBoard™ is a panel composed of 3 sheets of Plywood or OSB separated by regularly spaced blocks.  The construction produces incredible strength even with 1/4 inch sheets while providing a supply and return plenum for the distribution of heated or cooled air in the house or building.

 

 

 

Use of the product results in significant construction cost savings over conventional construction:

  • $7,000 in ductwork
  • $3,000 in structure and labor  — the sheathing can span 48 inches with great stiffness
  • $2,000 on the plumbing and electrical trades because of easier installation without obstructions and less joists

$12,000 in total savings translates to $146 per panel in profit or savings potential !
