Gore Lock Construction

Commercial projects require large scale designs and components that are generally out of stamped and stocked range. When custom elbows are required, we provide gore lock construction services to supply you with manufactured HVAC system material that meets or exceeds SMACNA standards and adopts ASHRAE recommendations for complying with the EPA’s indoor air quality regulations.

Gore lock construction of fittings for your HVAC system ductwork allows for more flexibility in the length of radius and angle of arc of elbows, reducers, transitions and other components that change the direction, constriction or connection of airflow than what is typically available from supply houses.

Although we do stock standard adjustable elbows and fittings for rectangular, spiral, round or mixed duct systems for your convenience, when you need a rigid fitting to connect components of the ventilation system that can be both custom fabricated and manufactured at typical commercial scale, consider gore lock construction as a cost-effective option for your project.

Choosing the most appropriate joining technique for your fabricated project components, whether it is welded, gore locked or button-punched seams will save you on material cost, install time and repairs.
