Fabric-based solutions that meet Olympic-standard pool requirements

HVAC systems are one of the most important components in the construction of top-quality water sports complexes. Especially if they are equipped with an Olympic-standard, FINA-compliant pool. To create the perfect indoor air quality in a particularly humid indoor environment, the builders of the swimming pool in Kaunas, Lithuania opted for FabricAir’s fabric-based air dispersion solutions.

Olympic-standard 50-metre, 10-lane swimming pool (compliant with FINA requirements), 528-seat spectator stands, 8-meter deep, 25-meter long children’s learning pool, 6,000-square-metre double spa area with a wide range of aquatic activities. All these aquatic zones were equipped with a tailored air distribution solution, which was integrated into the wholesome interior design of a new structure. The system consists of over 700 meters of Combi 90 Ø630 Round fabric ducts that ensure a uniform air dispersion across the whole premises.

“It is a great honor to see our solutions being implemented in the first Olympic-standard pool in Lithuania. Without a doubt, our fabric-based air distribution systems are of the highest quality and can definitely meet the standards of an international sports organization. I am sure, that the air quality on these premises will be as good as it possibly can, giving the extraordinary comfort levels for the water sports enthusiasts and spectators”, says Paulius Šarapnickis, Sales Engineer at FabricAir for the Baltic States.

The fabric used has antimicrobial properties, therefore it will prevent all possible health risks, including the growth of mold and bacteria on the ducts. The ducts were equipped with a MicroFlow and PerfoFlow flow models, this combination will guarantee the uniform air distribution without any uncomfortable drafts. This state-of-the-art HVAC system was installed with a Type1 AiO suspension in the gaps made for them in the ceiling, so it would be just a perfect match for the surroundings.

As the time during these construction works was of the essence, FabricAir solutions were manufactured and delivered to the site in less than two weeks and then, installed in just a matter of days.
