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

Cradle to Cradle is documented
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
To make the process a success, we have worked closely

It is very important for us that we can document the
sustainability of our products which is why we

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