Food processing industry
Fabric diffusers were first used in the food industry where regulations require processing devices to be frequently cleaned and sanitized. Fabric ducts provide the only air distribution system that can meet this requirement. Prihoda ducts and diffusers are made from a specially developed fabric using continuous fibers (called filaments) to achieve a smooth surface finish which resists buildup of dirt and particulate as well as prevent shedding of fabric fibers into the air stream; problems typical in diffusers made with staple fiber fabrics.
Supermarkets, exhibition and large retail areas
Large retail areas requiring even, effective air distribution into large spaces are served by textile ducts and diffusers with laser cut perforations or textile nozzles custom designed and located for the application. Decades of experience and testing have proven that fabric ducts and diffusers offer dramatically more uniform and efficient air distribution patterns than traditional systems while simultaneously offering substantial cost savings. With 9 stock colors (and custom coloring capability) plus compliance with all global standards for fire resistance (UL 2518, UL723, ULC S102.2, NFPA90a 25/50) Prihoda has a fabric duct solution for nearly any application.
Food Storage, Low Temperature Production Areas
In large cold storage rooms, Prihoda Textile air distribution systems evenly distribute air to ensure uniform temperature maintenance and stable product temperatures. The even distribution of cold air without drafts greatly increases worker comfort—and productivity—in low temperature production areas.
Chemical, textile and and electronic industry
With over 100 suspension options and the ability to provide air distribution patterns from uniform to precisely targeted using customized laser-cut perforations, ultrasonically welded textile nozzles (or a combination of both!) Prihoda Fabric ducts and diffusers are the perfect solution for virtually any industrial operation.
Pools, Sports Halls and Fitness Centers
Sports and fitness facilities are common applications for Prihoda Fabric Duct. By providing distribution patterns to match space usage, our fabric distribution systems ensure optimum comfort for athletes and customers at sports and fitness centers; including studio space where low ceiling heights can be accommodated by half-round and elliptical shapes. Prihoda Fabric ducts are also ideally suited to indoor water recreation facilities and natatoria. At a fraction of the cost of stainless steel or aluminum ducting, Prihoda fabric air distribution systems provide effective air dispersion while being impervious to rust, corrosion and sweating.
Prihoda air dispersion systems offer flexibility and effectiveness for meeting the extreme ventilation requirements—and often extremely tight spaces—of commercial kitchens. The fabric material is steam, heat and corrosion resistant and can be easily removed, washed and reinstalled to maintain the kitchen’s sanitary requirements.
Offices, restaurants, cinemas etc.
In offices, restaurants, theaters and other high-visibility installations, Prihoda fabric ducts and diffusers can be designed to become an elegant part of the space. Air diffusion through our ducts provides occupant comfort results comparable to chilled beams or perforated ceilings but at a substantially lower cost. The even and continuous distribution from Prihoda ducts and diffusers prevents drafts and dead zones common with traditional diffusers improving worker comfort and productivity.
At less than a pound per linear foot, virtually infinite color options and custom printing capabilities (logos or ads right on the duct!) Prihoda fabric ducts and diffusers offer a quick, easy and affordable solution to heating and cooling event tents and other temporary structures. Systems are provided with all suspension cabling and hardware for a fast, simple installation. High quality materials allow years of repeated use making the ducts ideal for event rentals and other high-frequency usage.
