Ease of installation

Easy installation

FabricAir dispersion systems are intuitive and simple to install. Each duct section is marked with an individual tag, which lets you know exactly where each piece should go. There are no trade specific tools required; everything you need can be found in a handy-man's tool box. Easy installation significantly reduces labor hours compared to metal ducts or other fabric duct systems. This helps to ensure that your project is built on time and within budget.

Ease of installation is a hallmark of our Smart Air technology, and it enables savinngs of up to 70% on total installed costs compared to conventional metal ducting.

Cost savings from installation

Installing FabricAir dispersion systems is fast and easy, and will reduce costs for the entire project due to the lower number of man hours. FabricAir systems are so easy to install that skilled labor is not required; depending on the size of the job it can be done with just a few people. All duct sections are connected to each other with zippers, and there are no "tools of the trade" to speak of. Painting is not required because the ducts arrive on site in the preselected color. The available suspension systems are variations of a cable or a track suspension, and some contractors have compared installing ducts on a track system to sliding a shower curtain. It really is that simple.
Due to the lightweight nature of FabricAir dispersion systems, the duct can be lifted easily and quickly to the desired mounting height, reducing the number of workers and man hours and eliminating the need for specialized equipment like duct-jacks. The duct is attached to the air handler using a durable ratcheting strapwhich is always included, further reducing the cost of installation.


FabricAir duct sections are connected with covered zippers, making assembly of the finished duct fast and simple. This saves a significant amount of time and the cost of skilled labor associated with that time. Another benefit of zippers is that you can easily disassemble the system and take down the fabric ducts to perform routine maintenance, or if you need to reconfigure your FabricAir dispersion system to accommodate a new architectural layout.

FabricAir tags every piece of duct that we produce. These tags contain a host of useful information such as material type/description, laundering instructions, duct dimensions, distribution type, order number, and piece number. This is a part of what makes FabricAir ISO 9001 compliant, and it has a tangible benefit for the end user. In the unusual case of a warranty claim, the order and piece number are easily identified on the tag and these are used to identify exactly what piece needs to be remade. Most importantly, the piece number allows the contractor to easily identify which piece they are looking at and relate it to the drawings that show where this piece fits in the system, allowing for minimal installation times.
Tools - you don't need many

The installation of FabricAir ducts does not require a special set of tools and can usually be accomplished with the tools that most people have at home. So go ahead and put away your duct jack, tin snips, shears, folding bar, tongs, crimpers, and awls - you won't need them to install a FabricAir dispersion system!

Installation guidance

FabricAir offers installation support with our Installation Guidance initiative (this service is only available in the USA and Denmark). FabricAir has a dedicated Installation Consultant that can be sent on-site to assist the contractor during the installation process. Typically, the Consultant will go on-site for 2-3 days to make sure that everything goes smoothly. He/she will help to identify potential problems, specific to your site, and suggest ways to mitigate these issues drawing from his or her past experience. This service will help reduce your installation time on your first FabricAir job and make you more efficient on future projects by helping to eliminate common time consuming mistakes before they happen. Take advantage of this unique service that FabricAir offers, inquire about it when you speak with one of our representatives.

Ratcheting straps for easy connections

All duct systems require a connection to an air handler (AHU). Metal systems require specialized tools and ancillary products, which have to be procured separately, to connect to an AHU. FabricAir systems connect to AHU's using ratcheting straps, sometimes referred to as tie down straps, all of which are included in your order making FabricAir your one stop shop for air distribution.
