Recyclable textile ventilation products
The world's first Cradle to Cradle certified
CradleVent is the first ventilation duct in the world to
receive the Cradle to Cradle approval by the EPEA Institute in Hamburg,
|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
schools, laboratories, sports arenas,
public buildings, and other comfort
The increasing demands in terms of
and ressource efficiency
make it attractive
for contractors and
architects to use the well-documented
CradleVent building component.
Initially Cradlevent textile ducts will only
be offered in white Trevira
CS material but other colours will follow
on shortly after.
Cradle to Cradle is documented
With the Cradle to Cradle concept you see waste as
food for a new production, this creates balance in the
cycle. When the product is no longer usable we take it back
for disassembly and recycling ready to be
used in another technical cycle. This way nothing is
Gaining Cradle to Cradle certification was a
time-consuming process but for us it was necessary to take
responsibility and start designing products that will be
useful rather than harmful for the
To make the process a success we worked closely with
Milestone Pro and upholstery fabric producer Gabriel
A/S, they were 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
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 deliver what we have
Design freedom and a good indoor
Textile Based Ventilation offers many benefits. Textile ducts
are tailored to match the room's interior design and colours. This
allows textile ducts to become an integrated part of the building
and open up to new architectural possibilities.
With textile ducts you get an efficient and draught-free air
distribution and a good indoor climate.
Textile ducts are washable, this gives you the opportunity
for energy savings as you lower the consumption of energy when
the duct is clean.
Located in Schiedam near Rotterdam, and designed by the
architectural firm LIAG, this energy optimised / CO2 -
neutral 6,000m2 school was completed in 2013. LIAG invited students
of different age to discuss their views of environmental and
sustainable building solutions to create future-proof buildings.
The TBV ducts have been designed throughout to match the
architectural expression of the building, and KE Fibertec were
proud to be part of this prestigious project
