    I agree with what your saying here but was just wondering why you use .15 per 100FT? Is that due to the wall material?

    Using the ductolator to determine FR,14"X3.5",wall space,looking at it as a 14X3.5 duct,if we had 229 cfm,it would be .15 FR per 100' of duct.

    Since the original poster has stated they are high wall returns,then 10 ft of wall space/duct,would be .015 Friction Rate.
