Installing FabricAir dispersion systems is fast and easy, and will reduce costs for the entire project due to the lower number of man hours.
FabricAir offers the most heavy duty ducts in the industry, in a lightweight design. Our ducts weigh as little as 300 g/m² [8.8 oz/yd²], thus it is like comparing a feather to a hammer, when compared to conventional metal systems.
This is important especially in connection with retrofitting existing building mass, as FabricAir dispersion systems will not significantly affect the structural integrity. As a quick rule of thumb, using 3 kg/m [2 lbs/ft] for calculation purposes will provide a fair conservative estimate for the structural engineer in 99% of all project.
The weight of an actual duct with suspension depends on the length and diameter of the duct. However, most popular fabric, Combi, weighs approximately 1/20 of steel sheet ducting.
The low weight makes FabricAir's Smart Air Solutions equally ideal in newbuilds and in retrofitting projects.
