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 parks.

Energy savings and improved indoor climate

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 delivery.

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 hall
  • Ventilation layouts that allow for different operational strategies to accommodate all types of events in the centre
  • Many layout and colour options to match the architecture of the building
  • Low installation costs compared with conventional systems

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.
