Sustainable ventilation

Sustainable ventilation with a low carbon footprint

FabricAir dispersion and distribution systems have a smaller carbon footprint than conventional metal ducting. FabricAir ducts require less energy to produce and transport, and with a significantly lower weight fabric ducts place considerably less load stress on the construction, making the system ideal for retrofitting as well as new builds.

The efficiency of air distribution in fabric ducts is much higher and more precise than with conventional metal ducting. This means they can run at a low static pressure drop and require less energy to operate.

The ductwork will last for a long time. Many of the original 1973 installations are still in use today.

FabricAir meets the OEKO-TEX 100 requirements, proving that we are committed to environmentally friendly production methods and materials. 

Low static pressure drop

Due to the low static pressure drop (often as low as 25 Pa [0.1" WG]) and more efficient air distribution methods, FabricAir dispersion systems can greatly reduce the lifetime operating cost of the entire HVAC system.

LEED points
FabricAir ducts and air dispersion systems are truly a value proposition. A better performing air dispersion system, at a lower cost, and many benefits that can be used to help achieve more LEED points. Depending on your project, FabricAir ducts may help you attain points in the areas of indoor air quality, acoustic environment and thermal comfort.

Long lasting

FabricAir is the original fabric duct manufacturer. We introduced the world's first fabric duct in 1973, thus have more than 40 years of experience. Many of our initial installations are still fully functional and perform just as well as the day they were installed.

Lightweight design for heavy duty ducts

FabricAir offers the most heavy duty ducts in the industry, in a lightweight design. Our ducts weigh as little as 300 g/m² [8.8 oz/yd²], thus it is like comparing a feather to a hammer, when compared to conventional metal systems. This is important especially in connection with retrofitting existing building mass, as FabricAir dispersion systems will not significantly affect the structural integrity. As a quick rule of thumb, using 3 kg/m [2 lbs/ft] for calculation purposes will provide a fair conservative estimate for the structural engineer in 99% of all project. The weight of an actual duct with suspension depends on the length and diameter of the duct. However, most popular fabric, Combi, weighs approximately 1/20 of steel sheet ducting.

Truck loads saved

FabricAir ducts are made out of a variety of textiles. These ducts can be neatly folded, packaged in a box, and loaded onto a truck and/or plane without wasting any space. This allows for any size duct to be manufactured and delivered to your job site. Metal ducts cannot be collapsed into a more manageable size, which imposes many limitations on how they must be produced. The maximum length and diameter of a metal duct is limited to what can fit on a truck. These ducts then have to be loaded one inside the other, known as nesting, to attempt to optimize space, but there is only so much optimization that can be done. Furthermore, with a continuing focus on clean air standards many owners now require the duct ends to be sealed to prevent the accumulation of dirt inside the duct during transport. This makes duct nesting impossible, thus making it incredibly expensive and inefficient to ship. Sometimes the ducts are so large and numerous that the duct manufacturing has to be done on-site, which requires setting up an entire sheet metal shop at your job site.

 

Save on weight, save on volume, save on costs, save the headaches and use FabricAir dispersion.
