We manufacture fabric ducting and diffusers of all dimensions from 100mm to 2000 mm, each designed to specific requirements. The duct inlets and connection spigots are always manufactured 10-15 mm larger than the specified size/diameter for ease of connection.
Air Socks can be of various shapes, dimensions, lengths, airflow distribution methods or suspension types. We make our products from various fabric types of different colors. We offer solutions for every situation that always correspond to demanding customer requirements.
Positive pressure only
C – CIRCULARThe standard shape, easy maintenance, preferentially recommended.
H – HALF-ROUNDFor use where there is not enough space for circular diffuser and aesthetic applications.
Q – QUARTER-ROUNDFor use where there is not enough space for circular diffuser, in aesthetic applications and if the diffuser is to be installed in the corner of a room.
SG - SEGMENTFor use where there is not enough height for
a half-round diffuser.
SC - SECTORAvailable if the room corner construction requires a different shape to quarter round.
OVER PRESSURE AND NEGATIVE PRESSURE
S – SQUAREThis shape requires a special suspension structure (provided) to clamp and support all corners.
T – TRIANGULARThe triangular shape is maintained by placing a heavy weight at the bottom of the duct to maintain tension on the walls of the material.
Sizes and Diameters
Determining the length of Fabric Ducting & Diffusers depends primarily on the availability of space. We can manufacture a fabric diffuser to deliver the same air volume whether the duct is short or long, the precise design depends on the material type, perforation designs and system pressure.
Pressure losses of Fabric Ducting & Diffusers are very similar to those in the traditional ducting. Calculating a more complex fabric distribution system is achieved using similar methods to those for sheet metal ducting. The minimum static pressure necessary to keep the correct shape of a Fabric Duct or Diffuser depends upon the weight of the fabric used. A minimum of 20 Pa is sufficient for light materials and 50 Pa necessary for medium and heavy ones.
The pressure distribution along Fabric Diffusers is different from traditional sheet metal ducting because with declining airflow longitudinal velocity decreases. To verify the design of your fabric distribution system, please contact us.
