Why Use Quick-Fit Clamp-Together Ducting?

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 it together

Nordfab’s Quick-Fit modular 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. Learn more about the Quick-Fit Clamp

Installers can simply and quickly clamp pieces together without any special tools, making Quick-Fit “The World’s Fastest Ducting™”. The telescoping Quick-Fit Sleeve eliminates exact-to-the-inch measurements when designing the installation. 

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”. Leak prevention reduces energy costs.

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. 

QF has been third party strength tested

Each size of duct piping has been third party tested for strength against collapsing. See our General Specifications page to learn more.
