New architectural possibilities with sustainable Cradle to Cradle fabric ducts.

The world's first Cradle to Cradle certified ventilation duct Cradle to Cradle is documented sustainability Design freedom and a good indoor climate

The world's first Cradle to Cradle certified ventilation duct

CradleVent is the first ventilation duct in the world to receive the Cradle to Cradle approval by the EPEA Institute in Hamburg, Germany.

The Cradle to Cradle certifiedcm program has been integrated as a key element of LEED version 4. 

The certification documents the
sustainability of the product and
the fact that we take responsibility
of its life cycle from Cradle to Cradle,
ie. from production to recycling.

By establishing a circle now we can
meet the future shortage of raw

CradleVent is our contribution to a
future-proof and sustainable product
for air distribution in office buildings,
schools, laboratories, sports arenas,
public buildings, and other comfort

The increasing demands in terms of
sustainability and ressource efficiency
make it attractive for contractors and
architects to use the well-documented
CradleVent building component.

The fabric duct is available in 
white, black, gray, and ultramarine blue
GreenWeave material.

Cradle to Cradle is documented sustainability

In the Cradle to Cradle concept, waste is seen as food for a new production which creates balance in the cycle. When the product is no longer usable, we take it back for disassembly and recycle what we can in another technical cycle. In this way, nothing is truly wasted.

A Cradle to Cradle certification is a time-consuming process but for us, it was necessary to take responsibility and start designing products that will be beneficial rather than harmful for the environment.

To make the process a success, we have worked closely with Milestone Pro and upholstery fabric producer Gabriel A/S who was the first company in Denmark to be Cradle to Cradle certified back in 2010. Gabriel has been our coach and inspiration in reaching our Cradle to Cradle goal.

It is very important for us that we can document the sustainability of our products which is why we have chosen the Cradle to Cradle system as this is the customer's guarantee that we keep what we promise.

Design freedom and a perfect indoor climate

Fabric Based Ventilation offers many benefits. Fabric ducts are tailored to match the room's interior design and colours. Thus fabric ducts become an integrated part of the building and open up to new architectural possibilities.

With fabric ducts you get an efficient and draft-free air distribution and a healthy indoor climate. Furthermore, they are easy to transport and install.

Fabric ducts are washable, which gives you energy savings as you lower the consumption of energy when the duct is clean.


At Broomfield Hospital in England they have installed fabric ducts in the atrium, thus making them a part of the architectural expression. Read the case.
