Announced back in July, Retrotec is about to start shipping their newly designed duct testers and blower doors...
What's the Difference?
The primary change surrounds the shell design. A new polycarbonate plastic mold design is now used, allowing for the DucTester legs and handle to be incorporated into the shell.
- A new larger carrying case (TL #119) will be used for the X Series systems.
- A Quick Connect Collar (SKU #DU373) will now be automatically included with every system that uses the X Series shell. The slightly larger shell size requires the use of a Quick Connect Collar to attach DucTesters to a flex duct, and to attach Passive House & Small Fire Systems to the blower door cloth.
Benefits to the End User:
- The more robust legs support sturdiness & assist in tipping prevention.
- You can now magnetically mount the DM32 gauge directly onto the DucTester for advanced maneuverability.
The first production run of the new DucTesters will be a Red/Black combo (as shown in the images above). However, future production runs will change to a Yellow/Black combo.
