Why textile ducts?
In principle a textile duct is a round, semi-round
or quarter round duct made of a light-weight textile material
instead of e.g galvanized steel, stainless steel or
aluminium, designed for delivery and distribution of cooled or
Why choose a Textile
Based Ventilation system?
and tailored solutions
Flexibility and tailored designs characterize KE Fibertec's textile
based ventilation (TBV) solutions. Here you may freely choose
the size that fits the architecture of the building the best. Also
you may choose from an almost unlimited range of system layouts,
colours, materials, and whether the TBV system must be passive,
hybrid, or active.
- Unique materials and colours
As the only manufacturer in the world we offer customized
woven textiles from our own weaving mill. Our materials are
designed for air distribution - not for tents or patio blinds when
it comes to uniform air distribution, shrinkage after washing,
colour-fastness, and not least best possible Dust Holding Capacity.
We offer a wide range of standard colours and in addition to that
our textiles may be dyed in any desired colour according to a
standard colour system (at extra cost).
Efficient air distribution
and good indoor climate
Textile ducts are very well-suited for efficient, uniform, and
draught-free distribution of fresh air without "dead zones". Stale
and stagnant air may cause fatigue and headache. KE Fibertec's
textile ducts create an effective air change and a good indoor
climate in schools, offices, shops, showrooms, and other types of
rooms where many people are assembled.
Fire approved materials
Naturally, all KE Fibertec materials have been fire-tested and
approved according to international fire standards incl. EN
impulse systems possess unique properties as to noise generation
and if correctly dimensioned they can be used for sound studios
without additional costs. At the same time the textiles act as
sound baffles below the ceiling where they absorb and break down a
part of the noise reflected.
our low impulse and hybrid ducts (not coated materials) are
made of permeable textiles where a little air will always diffuse
through the surface. This prevents condensation problems on the
surface, even in very humid rooms (>90% RH) thus rendering
- Easy to transport and install
Our materials weigh 260 - 330 g/m2 which is much
lighter than spiro ducts. At the same time textile ducts are much
easier to handle and to transport as they are folded and packed in
cartons of a maximum weight of 25 kg. KE Fibertec's suspension
rails are delivered in exact lengths rendering installation easier
and quicker than for similar systems. See the
- Hygienic and easy to
systems are easily dismounted and washed in a washing machine. Our
processed Trevira CS materials absorb max. 1% water even at a
relative humidity of more than 90% and the materials are approved
for the food industry. In extremely humid environments we recommend
an additional Antibac treatment of the materials that renders them
resistant towards fungi and micro-organisms. Please note that the
effect is non-existing at rates below 85% RF.
KE Fibertec textile ducts are based on Oeko-Tex®
Standard 100 certified yarns (12.0.03665). Our
production is certified according to the ISO 14001 standard
(Environmental Management System). Transportation and disposal of
textile duct systems produce less CO2 pollutants than
conventional steel ducts.
CradleVent® is the world's first Cradle to
Cradle ventilation duct for sustainable building.
With textile ducts you can create a more efficient air
distribution compared to steel ducts which opens up for energy

Why choose KE Fibertec as your ventilation
Creating a good indoor climate involves more than just
selling air distribution products. For KE Fibertec it's
all about dialogue, expertise, reliability and logistics. We don't
stock finished products or have standard components.
All our solutions are tailored to the task at hand.
No matter how much effort we put in, a good solution
requires dialogue about the expectations of the end result.
We offer our advice free of charge, so the sooner we are involved
in the project, the better the chance we have of
achieving a good result. Textile based ventilation (TBV) can
replace more conventional air distribution fittings in
almost every situation, but only if the design is tailored to
the particular task.
If you are in doubt whether TBV products can do the job for
you, our ventilation engineers are available to offer
you advice. But you should expect us to ask you questions not only
about the air volume and your heating/cooling
requirements, but also about the end user's expectations and needs.
We see it as a process of providing reliable advice
based on dialogue.
KE Fibertec has gone against the tide by raising the
technology level of the entire production process
in Denmark by introducing new standards for the use of
laser technology. All laser parameters are generated
in our dimensioning programme WinVent 3D and are electronically
submitted to our laser cutters. Not only did that
increase productivity and product finish but it was also an
incentive for us to introduce a brand new product
group, the so-called hybrid products.
The hybrid products combine the best properties from our
passive low impulse systems and our high impulse
A good co-operation is based on trust and for your next
ventilation job we hope to get the opportunity to prove
that this is not just empty words.
