building engineering services associationspecifications for: ForewordPlastic During the years which have passed since Dw/151Ductwork was first published 1974, it has taken its rightful place as the industry standard by which the DW/154 manufacture and installation of plastics ductwork can be judged. However, advances in both plastics technology and good working practices during recent years have determined the necessity for a revised specification. accordingly, the BEsa Ductwork Group, technical sub-committee, invited members of specialist plastic ductwork manufacturers and installers to form a Drafting Panel, for the purpose of producing a radically revised specification incorporating the latest working practices and setting new standards of quality which our 21st century clients are entitled to expect. in drawing up this new specification, the drafting panel has tried wherever possible, to use the layout and terminology of the widely acclaimed Dw/144, thereby making reference easier for all concerned. During the drafting process, the panel has consulted with specialist mate- rial manufacturers, individuals and organisations throughout the industry in order to ensure that, as far as possible, all standards reflect ‘up to the minute’ knowledge and best practices. i firmly believe that this effort has resulted in a new specification that clearly demonstrates the high standards of workmanship and profession- alism found within the ductwork industry and i take this opportunity of thanking all those who have contributed to its production.
