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 heated air.

Why choose a Textile Based Ventilation system?


  1. Flexibility 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.

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  4. Fire approved materials

    Naturally, all KE Fibertec materials have been fire-tested and approved according to international fire standards incl. EN 13501-1.

  5. Excellent acoustic properties

    Our low 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.

  6. No condensation problems

    All 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 insulation unneccessary.

  7. 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 installation movie.

  8. Hygienic and easy to maintain

    All TBV 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.

  9. Sustainable ventilation

    All 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 savings.

    Read the swimming pool case from Holland where they got an improved indoor climate and energy savings of 25% by changing to textile ducts.

Why choose KE Fibertec as your ventilation partner?

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 systems.

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.
