FabricAir ducts are ideal for corrosive environments, such as pools, salt rooms and workshops.
Feddet Camping, Fakse, Danmark
In 2010 Feddet Strand Resort selected a FabricAir dispersion system for their pool area. They wanted to create a comfortable environment for their guests as well as ensure the overall health of their building in the highly corrosive environment.
Using fabric ducting was the best option, as it allowed Feddet Strand Resort to create an aesthetically pleasing lightweight solution that played into the light and airy design of the building itself. The technology enabled a custom airflow, which minimized evaporation, while ensuring a healthy IAQ above the pool surface and on the ground level.
In 2020 FabricAir revisited the installation for a 10-year review of all components.
Tailored in condensation-free, non-corrosive Combi 85 the solution utilizes SonicFlow™ as the primary airflow, in combination with FabFlow™ as secondary airflow. The latter prevents condensation from forming on and inside the duct and stops dust and other particles from settling on the surface, thus creating a healthy and hygienic duct run with no bacteria growth.
The primary airflow, SonicFlow™, ensures a high air change at low velocity, thus creating a comfortable draft-free environment, with a low velocity across the pool surface.
The system is suspended using Type 1, with All-in-One shape retention support that ensures a great looking duct profile with and without airflow. The stainless steel hardware ensures against stress corrosion cracking.
Installation year: 2010/2011

Suspension: Type 1, AiO
Total airflow: 12.500 m³/h @ 90 Pa
Review and Results
10 years after the original installation, we revisited the application to review its performance after a decade in the highly corrosive pool environment.
The review included assessing fabrics, zippers, straps, and suspension parts, in addition to reviewing the general experience of the airflow and comfort.
We found that a decade in the highly corrosive environment had not affected the fabric, neither had the UV exposure. Straps, zippers, and hooks are also unaffected.
All suspension components, incl. cables, turnbuckles, drops, u clamps, etc., were tested and showed no signs of stress.
The client continues to be highly satisfied with the installation, functionality and not least the aesthetics of the solution and its adaptation to the interior design scheme.
This review proves that FabricAir dispersion solutions are ideal in highly corrosive environments, such as pool areas and water parks, when we apply stainless steel components:
“At Feddet Strand Resort we have been very happy for the solution using air socks from FabricAir. The ventilation solution works well. Design wise it blends naturally in with the room, as we emphasize natural colors; even after 10 years in use the air socks still look nice. In addition, I must add that maintenance is minimal; so, all in all we would recommend to others to use the same solution as we have done at Feddet Strand Resort.”, - says Managing Director, Kasper Kristensen, Feddet Strand Resort.
