QF® Provides Many Benefits

Nordfab originated Quick-Fit® clamp-together ductwork in the 1990s and users quickly realized the benefits of easy-to-install, re-useable ductwork. Here are some of the reasons users choose QF Ducting for their dust collection systems

Nordfab QF Clip with QF DuctYou Just Clamp QF Ducting Together

Nordfab’s Quick-Fit ductwork components have a rolled edge on the ends which provides easy connection to other components with use of a barrel-type clamp. A specially designed gasket inside the clamp seals the joint tightly.

Installers simply and quickly clamp each piece together without any special tools, to make Quick-Fit “The World’s Fastest Ducting™”. The telescoping Quick-Fit Sleeve eliminates precise measurements. 

QF Is Easy & Fast To Install

Because our ducting systems clamp together, no rivets, screws, or welding are needed. This cuts installation and downtime by more than 45% compared to flanged ductwork installation. See a comparison video: Nordfab Ducting vs. Flange Ducting

QF Fits Most Applications

Quick-Fit ducting components are adaptable to your existing ductwork and Quick-Fit has been used in a wide variety of applications, wherever dust collection or fine particulate transfer is required. See examples

QF is Re-useable

Quick-Fit ducting is easy to uninstall and relocate as you move machinery or have other changes in work areas, providing one of the lowest life cycle costs of any ducting product. 

QF is Easy To Clean

Quick-Fit ducting is easy to remove, clean, and re-install — without tools. 

QF Has Leak-Tight, Solid Welded Seams on All Straight Duct

Smooth, fully welded seams prevent leaks, snags, and possible “bug harbors”.

QF Is Available in Construction Materials To Fit Your Application

QF ducting is available in Galvanized or Stainless Steel. We can also provide components in other materials such as mild steel.
