While the Olympic athletes are getting ready for the competition of their life, fabric ducting supplier KE Fibertec has provided an efficient air distribution system and thus made sure that the indoor climate is comfortable for the contests to unfold.

While the Olympic athletes are getting ready for the competition of their life, fabric ducting supplier KE Fibertec has provided an efficient air distribution system and thus made sure that the indoor climate is comfortable for the contests to unfold.

KE Fibertec is involved in a number of sports arenas at the Olympics 2012. One of them is Mayesbrook Arena in Barking - a 5,000 m2 sports hall which has space for up to 3,000 spectators. At the Olympics the arena will stage events such as handball and athletics and Paralympians taking part in judo and wheelchair rugby will also use the arena. 

Sustainable and future-proof solutions

Mayesbrook Arena was officially opened by rowing champion Sir Steve Redgrave and he was very enthusiastic about the building. "The equipment is world class," he said and to him it was very important that it will continue to be used also after the Olympics, addressing the fact that you still find "abandoned" Olympic sports arenas around the world.

Going for gold

The Olympic games are about doing your very best and this also goes for the fabric duct system by KE Fibertec. Only the very best materials have been used, high quality and the best specifications to match the requirements.

The DireJet Vario nozzle system supplies 58,840m3 of air for both heating and cooling of the sports hall from a height of 12 m. 60 mm nozzles were chosen to ensure that the heated buoyant air would be able to reach floor level. The 100 m wide space is served by just two runs of evenly spaced DireJet Vario fabric duct.

In addition to the main hall, in the Elite gym, an Inject hybrid textile system was chosen to condition the 60 m long space quietly from a single run of ductwork.

Adam Taylor, Internal Sales Manager with KE Fibertec UK is very happy with the result and the cooperation with both consulting engineers and contractors, "This project has indeed been very exciting and also somewhat different from what we are used to.

And we feel proud to play a small part in the biggest sports event in the world," he adds.
