Fabric duct design selected for improved air quality in Miami sports facility

The University of Miami in Miami, Florida made a major upgrade to the air quality in the Carol Soffer Indoor Practice Facility. To ensure player comfort and maintain indoor air quality, the University chose to install a FabricAir dispersion system with custom designed and engineered fabric ducts. The facility includes 75,000 square feet of high-performance artificial field turf and approximately 90,000 square feet of floor area.

One of the key attributes of FabricAir’s air dispersion systems is its ability to provide consistent airflow throughout the space. This is especially important for sports facilities where air quality and temperature can greatly affect player performance.

The ducts are also impact resistant, which means they can withstand the impact of a loose football without losing their shape or effectiveness. In addition to their durability, the fabric ducts also feature internal 360-degree hoops that help the ducts maintain their shape.

FabricAir’s OriFlow directional flow model, specifically designed to deliver air exactly where it is needed, was also used in the installation. OriFlow is ideal for medium to high-velocity directional air, making it the perfect solution for sports facilities like the Carol Soffer Indoor Practice Facility.

Chuck Justice, Vice President of US Sales for FabricAir, commented, “We are thrilled to have been selected by the University of Miami for this project. Our FabricAir dispersion system and custom designed fabric ducts provide a superior solution for maintaining indoor air quality and ensuring player comfort.”

This installation is a great example of how Fabric Air ducts are the ideal solution for sports facilities and other large indoor spaces where consistent airflow and temperature control are essential.
