CLAMP TOGETHER DUCTING - INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
ESTABLISH A STAGING AREA
Find an area where all parts can be laid out in the order of assembly. Each shipment has the part # and the box that the part is in to assist you in locating the parts. It is recommended that you stage the drops separately and as close to the drop locations as possible.
ESTABLISH THE ‘LINE’ OF TRAVEL
You need to establish a straight line by which to install your various lines. You may use an existing beam or you may want to ‘pull’ a string as your straight line to insure that you are staying straight throughout your installation. Installations can begin at the fan end or the at the ‘pick-ups’. However final adjustments are easier on the pick-ups and larger jobs are easier if installation starts from the fan forward. Either way, you need a pre-established ‘line’ to follow.
LOCATE AND INSTALL TEMPORARY HANGERS
These will support the duct during the installation process. Hangers can be added and moved as duct is installed, but hangers will be needed during the installation to support the duct. If using the cable hangers—see the instructions in the catalog/price list. If using a rod attached to saddles, you will want to have the saddles attached to the rod, ready to receive the duct.

CLAMP TOGETHER STRAIGHT RUNS ON THE FLOOR
You will need to limit the lengths to a manageable number of pieces. Remember that the longer the duct the harder it is to maneuver and the more hangers you will need.
ALWAYS INSTALL CLEVIS PIN IN CLAMP
This needs to be done as soon as it is latched. This is especially important during installation so as to avoid accidental unclamping.
