A healthy indoor climate in offices improves working environment and increases productivity

Most of us spend many hours a day indoors, and if you work in an office or in a shop, this amounts to a significant number of hours spent without access to fresh air or natural light. This puts strong demands on the indoor climate in the workplace.

The indoor climate comprises all the environmental factors that affect us indoors, e.g. air, humidity, heat, smoke particles, chemical substances and lighting. All of these influence our health and quality of life and may ultimately lead to illness and inability to work.

You may experience a poor indoor air quality in the following ways:

  • Cold and draught
  • Overheated room
  • Bad smell
  • Headache and fatigue
  • Irritation of eyes, nose and throat
  • Nausea and dizziness
  • Skin rash and itching

 

The effects of a poor indoor climate in schools and offices have been in focus for many years. Poor indoor air quality has a negative impact on our well-being, health and productivity and companies will carry the costs of declining productivity and sick days for employees.

Improved indoor climate increases productivity by 10-20%

Research results by, among others, the Danish Technological University have shown that the proper indoor climate in schools may increase the learning capacity of students by up to 14 per cent.

According to a study by the Danish Labour Organization (LO) of the working environment, an improvement of the indoor climate may increase productivity by 10-20 per cent in offices with a poor indoor climate. Investments in mechanical ventilation that allows you to control air temperature and quality may result in productivity increases of several per cent per year and a payback period of only 1-2 years.

KE Fibertec's textile based ventilation ducts provide an optimum solution for the distribution and delivery of fresh air in offices, conference rooms, classrooms, and other types of rooms where many people assemble.

A textile duct from KE Fibertec is both an environmental and an energy efficient alternative to ducts made of steel.


There are many benefits:

  • Lightweight material - low transportation costs
  • No draught and no dead zones
  • Efficient and uniform distribution of fresh air
  • Silent air distribution - down to 20 dbA
  • Clean air as the systems filter out dust particles from the supply air
  • Easy installation and removal
  • Washable in a regular washing machine - no growth of bacteria
  • Environmentally friendly materials
  • Available in numerous custom colours
  • Tailored ducts that match the design of the room


KE Fibertec has supplied textile based ventilation to many different comfort installations where the demand for draught-free, uniform and efficient air distribution has been combined with outstanding design.

See examples of KE Fibertec's solutions in comfort ventilation.
