Fresh air is important for the learning ability

The air that we breathe has great influence on our well-being and our ability to learn. In recent years there has been an increasing focus on Danish schools concerning quality of indoor air and indoor climate. Studies have shown that students' performance decreases in class rooms with poor indoor air quality.

Studies confirm that a poor indoor climate has a highly negative impact on the learning ability of the children.

Often class rooms are not properly ventilated to meet the demands of the children and to ensure a good air quality for the children. Class rooms are characterized by many children/students per square metre; this often leads to a high CO2 level and a poor indoor air quality.

That may cause students to suffer headaches, lack of concentration ability, and unnatural tiredness. Also, problems of draught may occur if the room is primarily ventilated via open windows.

Studies by the Danish Technological University (DTU) document a clear connection between air quality and air temperature and the performance of the students. Tests performed at Danish schools show that by establishing mechanical ventilation room temperatures can be reduced from approx. 25° to 20°C which improved student performances by up to 10%.

An air distribution system by KE Fibertec is an optimum solution to ensure a good and healthy indoor climate for our schoolchildren and which is also energy-efficient.


Some of the benefits of Textile Based Ventilation by KE Fibertec are:

  • Draught-free air distribution - no dead zones
  • Easy maintenance - washable in an ordinary washing-machine
  • Silent air distribution - documented down to 25 dbA
  • Clean air - the duct also works as an air filter
  • Low initial costs compared with conventional solutions
  • The textile duct, flush mounted with the ceiling, distribute air with comfort air velocities and low noise
  • KE Fibertec's textile ducts are highly suited for demand-driven ventilation (VAV systems that are adjusted according to the C02 content in the room
  • Well-suited for retrofit applications
  • 1600 custom colours ensure that the ducts can be tailored to any architectural design


Healthy indoor climate and noise-free ventilation solution for class rooms

Baaring School was recently renovated and expanded so that the school today is both up-to-date and future-proof. In connection with the ventilation contract it was decided to install textile ducts since they provide a more effective air distribution than conventional steel ducts.

All rooms have been fitted with D-shaped low impulse systems made of a flame retardant Trevira CS material. The D-shaped ducts are designed to produce low pressure loss and consequently low energy consumption. The duct solution will deliver fresh air evenly along the entire duct surface thus avoiding draughts and "dead zones" in the room.
