Fabric-based air distribution solutions have a lot of upsides if compared to conventional, metal ducts. For example, condensation is a typical concern in HVAC ducting. However, fabric does not have the same natural tendency toward sweating as other HVAC ducts do. Permeable textiles prevent the formation of condensation on the ductwork, which is why fabric ducting does not require insulation.
Eliminating the need for insulation provides significant time savings on a project, which naturally also affects the price. The savings potential also includes materials and the transportation and storage of these during the building project. The efficient use of light-weight materials also means lower shipping costs. FabricAir ducts arrive as a complete, engineered system with the ductwork, suspension hardware and flow models all included. There are no additional diffusers, connectors, sealants, insulation, hangers, or painting necessary.
The hygienic nature of fabric ducts stems from the elimination of condensation, which in turn prevents bacteria, mold, and microbial growth. Combi may be autoclaved and other FabricAir ducts can be machine washed; traits not found with conventional ventilation ducting.
Finally, Fabric ducts disperse air quietly, which means they are the better alternative in noise sensitive applications. FabricAir offers solutions ideal in libraries, auditoriums, and the like.
