Saddle Taps on Flat are a great way to branch a round duct run off of a rectangular duct run at a 45 degree angle for improved air flow and efficiency. As with all of the products from The Duct Shop, they are manufactured from the highest quality galvanized sheet metal and to our exacting standards.
Installation Tip — You simply cut the proper size hole in your rectangular duct run or plenum, then attach your Saddle Tap using sheet metal screws through the flange into the duct or plenum on approximately 6" centers. We do recommend that you seal around the Saddle Tap connection to the plenum with a duct sealer to prevent air leakage. Also see installation tip for Flexible Duct or Sheet Metal Duct, depending on which type you will be attaching to.
