This standard was first published in 1955 and revised in 1963 mainly to specifi the values in metric system in place of fps values given in the original specification. . assistance has been taken from the following: a) 1S0 7807: 1983 Air distribution — Straight circular sheet metal ducts with a lock type spiral seam and straight rectangular sheet metal ducts — Dimensions. scope has been expanded to cover different materials used in fabrication of ducts in place of metal duqts covered in earlier version. afier the draft finalized by the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Sectional Committee had been approved by the Mechanical Engineering Division Council. In this revision. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be same as that of the specified value in this standard.

This revision has been taken up mainly to align the sizes with that of International Standard and also for international coordination among standards and practices being followed in other countries. For ‘the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with the final value. Accordingly the title has been changed and the constructional details are covered in a very detailed way.
