Underfloor ventilation is a
great solution where space is tight or it is desirable to keep the
ceiling free from ductwork.
One of the main challenges is balancing these systems.
By using permeable textile ducting as underfloor ventilation duct,
balancing is made much simpler. The textile ducting is easy to
route within the floor void and so can be run throughout the space
to ensure an even pressurisation.
A small amount of air bleeds through the surface of the duct along
its length. As there is always air moving away from the ducts
surface, no heat transfer can occur between the warm air in the
void and the cold air in the duct. This means that the air
temperature being delivered to void at the start of the system is
the same as at the end. This is in contrast to conventional
uninsulated steel systems that suffer from thermal pickup, this
normally contributes to the difficulty when balancing.
Underfloor ventilation is quick and easy to
Installation of textile underfloor ventilation ducts is very quick
compared to their steel counterpart. The ducts can even be
installed once the floor is laid. The textile duct systems can be
laid loose in the void and simply tensioned at either end or at
directional changes. Other mounting options include tethering the
ducts to the floor pedestals every 600mm.
Textile underfloor ventilation ducts are very easy to clean, they
can be easily removed by pulling them out from pre-defined pints,
bagging up and then sent to a local laundry.
