For the end user, the biggest problem with traditional ducting systems is the maintenance and cleaning which can be very inconvenient and expensive.
Tests have proven that insufficiently maintained ventilation systems is the major cause of poor quality indoor air, frequently contributing significantly to sick building syndrome.
In the food industry the difficulty in maintaining traditional ducting systems can lead to the provision of the ideal conditions for the rapid growth of micro-organisms which is a hazard to health.
With a KE Fibertec system, maintenance is not a problem since the textile ducts are easily removed and refitted without the use of any special tools. They can be washed and tumble dryed time and time again without the risk of shrinkage.
The problem of dirty and unhygienic ducts is now solved once and for all.
During operation the KE-Low Impulse System® and KE-Interior System® act as an additional and terminal filter before the air is supplied to the room environment. The degree of this filtration is equivalent to F5 to F6 standards.
We are now able to offer a full repair and maintenance service for our systems and socks manufactured by other suppliers.
