The entire fabric air duct is an air diffuser

In a Fabric air dispersion system the fabric ducts distribute air along the entire length of the duct at the desired angle. The full length even air distribution is a standard feature of FabricAir's Smart Air Solutions and does not come with a significant price premium, which is the case when using conventional metal ducts. 

The full length distribution comes in two varieties: Directional Flow Models (DFM) and Surface Flow Models (SFM). These two methods can be co-specified as needed. For example, a swimming pool would require a permeable fabric to avoid condensation; an SFM. It would also require a type of DFM, like SonicFlow™, to wash the perimeter surfaces.

Full length fabric air dispersion is enabled through permeable fabrics and directional perforations in the surface the ducting. This creates uniform, draft-free and condensation-free air distribution throughout the entire space, regardless of system complexity.

The Challenges of Conventional Ducting

Conventional metal ducts need grills and diffusers, which results in highly complicated installations and higher energy consumption. These additional fittings often cause uneven air distribution and add to the expense, space requirements, man hours, etc. of the project.

Such uneven air distribution is a major cause for uncomfortable and unhygienic work environments as they lead to draft and condensation problems. 

Fabric Ducting Enables a Uniform Air Distribution for Ideal Comfort

At FabricAir we design our air distribution and air dispersion systems with efficiency and excellence in mind. The fabric ducts are breathable, which makes every part of the duct functional and efficient, creating a uniform air distribution. Higher control and precision provides the area with a superior comfortable climate as far as ventilation, heating and cooling is concerned.

Full-length fabric air dispersion allows for the gentle, noiseless exit of air from the duct surface. Ideal comfort with lower energy consumption is achieved through combining flow models to suit the specific area requirements. The use of tailored flow models allows the system to suit virtually any design requirement the end-user has without compromising the air dispersion results. That is the secret behind Smart Air Solutions.

By combining surface flow models with directional flow models you can achieve the ideal airflow regardless of the project complexity.

Drafts refer to fast moving cool air that can cause discomfort in the work place. 

Directional flow models will have a row (or more) of air distribution placed along the length of the duct at any desired position to deliver the air exactly where it is needed.

Surface flow models distribute the air through the surface of the duct either through permeable fabrics or microperforations.

FabricAir has many different flow models that can be divided into two main categories: surface and directional flow models. 

Many functions known from conventional metal ducts are fully integrated in a Smart Air Solution from FabricAir, making diffusers, grilles, dampers, etc., redundant. 

There are many considerations when evaluating noise levels in any given space. Air distribution is just one of those factors.

FabricAir dispersion and distribution systems have a smaller carbon footprint than conventional metal ducting.
