Fabric ducts will last for years and years

FabricAir challenges the assumption that fabric ducts won’t last as long as sheet metal ducts. These FabricAir ducts were originally hung in 1977 and continue to ensure efficient cooling and comfortable indoor climate at the slaughterhouse facility in Blans, Denmark.

About the job site

The “Danish Crown” in Blans is great job site to share the FabricAir dispersion system’s longevity and exclusiveness. The FabricAir Dispersion System is effectively used in a draft and condensation free manner to cool down and ventilate several rooms (different types) to 12 degree Celsius [53.6 degree Fahrenheit], where machinery generates a large heat load. The result was achieved by combining two flow models: the FabricAir FabFlow model was the perfect choice to reduce the risk of bacteria growth by preventing condensation, and the FabricAir NozzFlow model directly sweeps the ceiling to stop the condensation from settling.”
