Textile ducts meet high demands on indoor climate in sports halls
Ventilation of sports centres with large crowds is a very
complex task if the solution has to be effective during daily
events when the heat load is limited to the athletes using the
sports centre for exercising purposes as well as during weekends
when the centre may be crowded.
Whether it is a handball match at elite
level or a trade fair, the indoor climate of sports and
multi-purpose halls is subject to heavy demands, and especially in
the design phase extra focus must be placed on acoustics, air
temperature and air velocity.
The operating economy of the halls is also an important aspect and
it can be a financial challenge to heat up the halls for special
events outside normal hours.
KE Fibertec has supplied textile based ventilation
solutions to sports halls at home and abroad, e.g. for ice skating
rinks, handball halls, swimming pool facilities and water theme
Energy savings and improved indoor
When renovating the Thialf Ice Rink in Holland
- primarily used for ice hockey and speed-skating - one of the
challenges was to ventilate the seating area without creating
condensation that would slowly melt the top layer of ice thus
impairing the conditions for the skaters.
The solution was a combination of the existing system and a
KE-DireJet® System that is made of a
non-permeable fabric fitted with nozzles for directional air
At the Swedish fitness centre, Friskis & Svettis, they
had a high ventilation demand in their large fitness rooms where
many people work out. For this task they chose
KE-DireJet ducts with nozzles, and for their smaller rooms
KE-Inject ducts with small laser-cut holes were installed that
provide even air distribution without draught problems.
Multi-purpose arenas like Rosvalla Arena
and Prioritet Serneke Arena
make high demands on the air distribution and also demands on
the indoor climate.
A swimming pool
facility in Holland was looking for a way to increase energy
efficiency and create a better indoor air quality since they were
experiencing problems of fluctuating temperatures and condensation
at the windows with the existing steel ducts. With installation of
textile ducts the indoor air quality was improved and their energy
costs were reduced by up to 25%.
- Cooling, ventilation and heating in one
- No draught problems in the auditorium
- Good air quality and uniform temperature throughout the
- Ventilation layouts that allow for different operational
strategies to accommodate all types of events in the
- Many layout and colour options to match the architecture
of the building
- Low installation costs compared with conventional
KE Fibertec has supplied textile based ventilation for many
different applications where the demand for draught-free, uniform
and efficient air distribution was combined with good design.
