Duct profiles for every challenge
FabricAir offers a wide selection of custom duct profiles tailored to specific project challenges as our engineers design the air dispersion system to ensure the best possible fit for each individual application. In addition to classic fabric ducting, we offer specialized duct types, such as the FabricAir® VarioDuct,™, that cater to specific air engineering challenges. Classic fabric ducting comes in a wide assortment of duct profiles in addition to the round and D-shaped favorites, whereas the specialized ducts are round.
Duct Profile Types
FabricAir Round Duct is the most commonly used duct profile and is typically found in open ceiling applications. The duct diameter can be made as small or as big as required.
Circle Section Duct is used when there is a hard ceiling to attach to. Typically, this profile is used when there is not enough head room to allow for the use of a Half-Round duct.
D-Shaped / Half-Round Duct can be used when there is a hard ceiling to attach to. This duct profile is typically used because there is not enough head room to install a round duct or to make the duct appear to be part of the ceiling rather than free hanging in the space.
FabricAir Rectangular Duct is fully customisable and is typically required when there is not enough space to fit a round duct. The duct is available in all flow models and fabrics except for Poly.
Shape Retention Options
The All-in-One support components require minor tools and are easily removable for maintenance purposes. The appropriate suspension support depends on the diameter of the duct. The AiO Support will cover 180° of the duct’s circumference up to Ø1220. For diameters above Ø1220, hanger coverage decreases due to shipping constraints. All-in-One provides additional support for 90° elbows.
Internal 360° Hoops are available in duct systems from Ø200 mm and up. The hoops come pre-installed from the factory on ducts up to Ø660 mm. For diameters above Ø660 mm, the suspension fiberglass rods are added on site. Adding the hoops is an easy process, as they simply glide in place.
In certain applications, the visual appearance of the air distribution system is very important, that is why FabricAir designed a Taut Endcap that provides a smooth endcap and aesthetically pleasing appearance regardless if the system is on or off.
Wide assortment of duct profiles
FabricAir ducting comes in a wide assortment of duct profiles in addition to the round and D-shaped favorites. Our engineers’ design air dispersion systems that ensure the best possible fit for each individual application. Influencing factors, like room dimensions, air volume, aesthetics, and the purpose of the solution are thoroughly evaluated to select the appropriate duct type and profile.
FabricAir engineers call on a proven almost 50-year track record and accumulated know-how in air engineering to create the ideal solution.
