Why choose fabric ducts instead of steel ducts?11-10-2018
The above drawing shows clear differences between the the two systems. Steel ducting or sheet metal ducting (left) only deliver air through specific orifices in the duct. In for example, a classroom, the students sitting far from an opening will lack fresh air, whereas the students sitting right below the holes may experience draft problems.
Fabric ducting or textile ducting (right) is characterized by air diffusion across the entire surface, i.e. throwing air into the occupied zone.
Where steel ducting creates a risk of "dead" zones in the room, fabric ducting offers a uniform distribution of air through the entire duct. This results in efficient air exchange and healthy indoor climate.
Fabric ducts are tailored in color, shape, and size to match the architecture and the ventilation demands. Fabric ventilation ducts are easy to install and to adjust and are also energy-efficient compared with steel ducting.
