Features of textile ducting production

The use of cutting-edge production technology combined with our great experience operating in the HVAC sphere (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) gave us a means to manufacture high-quality products. We also are constantly improve our textile duct systems and integrate new front-running technical solutions into our manufacturing process.

Having the laboratory equipped with high-precision control equipment at our disposal, we are studying the distribution of air flow under various conditions and modes of air distributor operation.

For our work we use the special features of the projects, such as air flow placement, means of air distribution, air flow remoteness, temperature difference, and other parameters. Based on the calculations, we design the optimal air duct system for the customer that will allow us to make the air exchange system that the facilities require. As a result of these air socks, TEXAIR reaches a full air distribution system.

    What is fabric duct

    Fabric Ducting is the most technologically advanced and efficient solution for the ventilation systems, that is available now. The innovative fabric air ducts had been developed based on extensive experience with all other previous kinds of ducting (metal, plastic) and have an impressive list of economical and functional advantages.
    There is no doubt that now textile ducting dominates on the ventilation systems market and gradually supplantes the more conservative alternatives.

    So now the work for creating new ventilation systems can not go without the developing of textile air ducts as the one of the key elements of the technical solution.

    The incredibly wide range of available options for the textile ducts allows them to fit perfectly into the any project.

    Textile air ducts do not burn

    The company strongly focuses on the development and integration of new kinds of fabrics with different new properties like elastic, fire-proof material with a special silicon covering which stands the influence of temperatures of up to 380°C and may be used in ducts for facilities with special requirements. So the characteristics of this material exceed the essential requirements for the materials pertaining to the fire-safety category G1 and B1, and the ducts have no any needs for the any additional fire-safety protection measures by customers.

    Fabric ductwork is great for corrosive environments

    Producing the air socks, TEXAIR uses materials that are chemically resistant and non-reactive to the majority of components floating around in the air. And for using in aggressive environments or at enterprises whose equipment has high requirements for the materials, TEXAIR uses special fabrics. Some our fabrics made of out of 100% polyester with no admixtures or additives exhibits sufficient resistance to such substances as synthetic hydrochloric acid, chemically pure sulfuric acid, and ammonium chloride, which allows it to be used for ventilation systems in facilities for microcircuitry production. We are able to make ducts material with special coating with a particular combination of properties. So, customer can get a unique fabric that is the best for interaction with the aggressive environment that they work in. That's the way how we can offer a system of ducts for special kind of facility without needs to depend on the standard solutions that the market pushes.

    Fabric ducts are neutral for magnetic and electrical spaces

    One of the characteristics of antistatic fabric is freedom off the pressure from an electrostatic tension that is created as a result of friction from air particles. Since the ducts fabrics are primarily dielectric, fabrics are used which are made out of carboniferous thread in So customer can use such ducts in facilities which have additional requirements are necessary to protect against explosions.

    Textile ventilation systems work in the wide temperature range: from -50°C to +380°C

    TEXAIR Company has materials at its disposal with a broad range of consumer properties. Since the conditions which the fabric ducts may be used vary greatly, each kind of fabric used features its own temperature range. This allows customers to choose the most suitable solution for their facility, rather than overpaying for a universal option.

    Fabric ventilation systems have antibacterial properties

    The antibacterial effect reaches by way of adding special properties to the fabric by including special threads within the material (bacteriostatic or antibacterial). The content of threads with antibacterial properties is somewhere between 5 and 99% of the entire volume of the fabric and may feature such components as triclosan, pure silver or silver ions, silver zeolites (silver with a non-organic ceramic base), copper oxides, and non-organic bonds of silver and zinc. The use of such materials lets to extend the life cycle of the fabric diffuser during intervals between operations.

    Fabric ducts have a long service life: 10 years and more

    The fabric ducts are produced out of certified materials characterized by a high level of durability and wear-resistance. The ducts can handle a large number of washing cycles in a washing machine. If the rules of use are properly observed, the service life of the air socks will exceed 10 years. And, considering the fact that people clean ventilation systems, as seldom as possible, fabric ducts are the most preferable option from an using perspective because the expenses is lower.

    Textile air ducts are lightweight

    Fabric ducts are lighter-weight than metallic ducts. The maximum density of the material is about 600 g/m², so the average weight of a linear meter of a duct usually is less than a kilogram. This allows them to be snapped onto self-supported constructions in which the use of traditional systems would be out of the question. So the use of fabric air ducts allows a full ventilation system in any facilities without in any limits for the customer.

    Flexibility in installation the ventilation system

    TEXAIR presents a wide selection of various standard sizes and geometrical shapes of ducts. For example for facilities with low ceilings we recommend using semi-circular-shaped ducts; and for ceilings where no systems can possibly be placed, we recommend ducts of the form of a segment or a sector. Such a variety offers give a chance to select the duct with the most convenient, lowest-cost shape option and placement, regardless of the particular features of the facility.

    Easy installation and removal of fabric ducting

    One of the main advantages with textile air socks is ease of assembly. In this regard, customers can save as much as up to 90% in expenses compared to dealing with traditional metallic systems. And keeping in mind that any ventilation system must be services and periodically cleaned, the ease of its disassembly and subsequent installation gives fabric ducts an unmistakable advantage over zinc-coated ducts.

    Fabric ducting is excellent for repair

    Any part in TEXAIR's ducts can be easily replaced. Thanks to its simple zipper fastening connection mechanism. If suddenly for any reason one has the need to replace a segment of the duct, this can be easily done by the customer on his or her one without having to call to installation company.

    Low prices for fabric ductwork

    TEXAIR air ducts provide for efficient distribution of air without any additional expensive distribution devices. And such ducts allow customers to cut back on their budget thanks to the simplicity of installation as well as the lower cost of the materials and components compared to the zinc-coated ducts. When folded up and packaged their overall dimensions are far less, resulting in lower delivery expenses. Textile air ducts do not require many elements that traditionally systems need, in particular: air distribution elements (diffusers, anemostats, grids, etc.), mufflers, numerous attachments and connecting parts, and fixtures.

    100% compatibility of textile ventilation with metal ventilation

    The ducts are easily connected with metallic ducts into a unified, combined system. For assembly onto the supply line, a connecting component is provided for on the duct which can be used to connect a textile system to the end of any shape or configuration. This is very convenient since it doesn't require the manufacture of any specially shaped elements on the customer’s part.

    Air balance in the ventilation system

    The ducts do not require any additional measures to return a balance as a result of the air flow. The customer is geting a fully prepared, balanced system in terms of the air distribution system’s air flow and pressure. For this reason, the customer will no longer have the need to subsequently readapt the system following installation.

    Eco-friendliness of fabrics

    The ducts feature a smooth inner surface designed to minimize losses due to air friction against the wall, which impedes the deposit of contaminations fabrics used in production feature a hygiene certificate, are tested, and have been approved; they do not cause any allergic reactions and are thus completely safe and suitable for use in the various facilities. This allows air socks’ use to continue to expand in the fields where previously metallic ducts were used as default.

    Hygienic of fabric ventilation system

    The air socks can be operated with faster air speeds than metallic ducts and feature a smooth inner surface. For this reason, the TEXAIR ducts do not accumulate a dust layer in the course of their operation. The entire system, including all its passages and turns, are manufactured out of fabric, so it can undergo cleaning and washing with no restriction in a washing machine. As a result, the amount customers will be able to save on subsequent servicing is also an unmistakable advantage that fabric ducts have.

    The aesthetics of fabric ventilation

    The air ducts are capable of accentuating and adding variety to the design of an interior. This is yet another benefit that TEXAIR brings to the table. Depending on the customer’s interior, we can offer the choice of various construction styles and a broad color range. Furthermore, ducts with a neon lighting and their one-of-a-kind of appearance could add to your facility a touch of exclusivity. This designer solution will undoubtedly attract a greater level of attention to your facility among visitors.

      Fabric ducting for food processing plants
      In the food industry, the primary requirements stated for the ventilation system fall under sanitary and hygienic requirements. For this reason, the ventilation systems must be easy to clean. The air socks satisfy this requirement with ease, since they can be cleaned in washing machines. The use of antibacterial fabrics helps avoid the spread of germs on the walls of the ducts.
      Fabric ducting for cooling chambers
      The cooling of products at food production sites is a crucial part of the production process. Most commonly, products are cooled following pre-packaging or heat processing. As a rule, cooler rooms used for storing food products are compact, but are filled up will a large amount of products, so in order to ensure that the cold air is distributed evenly throughout the cooler room, companies often choose to use air ducts. This solution helps ensure even cooling or freezing for products, no matter how far away they are set from the air cooler.
      Fabric ducting for storage facilities
      Warehouses are usually distinguished from other facilities by their large areas and high ceilings. Air heating is currently one of the most efficient solutions for such a type of facility. Meanwhile, nothing can achieve this objective better than air ducts. They allow for air to travel at the necessary speed throughout the work area in spite of the great height at which they are installed. Even air distribution ensures a constant temperature, which is a necessary condition for storing various types of products.
      Fabric ducting for shopping centres and shops
      One of the main requirements stated in regards to malls are the high fire-safety requirements they have. For this purpose, TEXAIR Company offers materials made from a material resistant to burning. The ducts may be manufactured out of different colors of materials, which is an unmistakable advantage they present over traditional systems. Meanwhile, the ability to distribute air all throughout zones will come in handy at such venues, for instance, as grocery cooling sections.
      Textile ducting for gyms and fitness clubs
      A particular feature of ventilation in sports facilities is that such halls are often used for sessions of intense workouts which may be categorized as heavy-duty physical exertion. This, in turn, calls for a particular approach to the ventilation systems’ design. Air socks allow for the necessary mobility in the air that is desirable in facilities used for health and exercise as well as an even distribution of air all around the sports hall, ensuring that any no flow areas are missed.
      Fabric ducting for production plants and workshops
      TEXAIR fabric ducts are also used at various industrial production sites, each of which entailing its own unique characteristics. There are large heat flows present at many companies, related to technological processes. The use of air socks allows for additional air flows to be directed into these zones to compensate for the heat flows; meanwhile, the TEXAIR-S unified tool helps calculate them precisely.
      Fabric ducting for greenhouses
      Today, the development of the greenhouse business is undergoing a new growth phase. This is not only facilitating constant demand for fresh fruits and vegetables, but also the advent of new technology for the construction of similar facilities and solutions for creating a microclimate in greenhouse facilities. One such novelty is the use of air socks in air heating systems for greenhouses. Ducts are usually stored in the lower section of greenhouses in order to ensure that as much heat as possible is transferred to the plants. Air socks can also be used for an even supply of carbon dioxide to feed the crops.
      Fabric ducting for flower storage rooms
      Anyone who is running a flower business has the necessity to store his or her flowers, which means that he or she will need a cooler room. It provides flowers the ability to reside under the conditions that are most comfortable for them to survive. However, simply their storage alone in a cooler room does not ensure that they will remain well-preserved, since a strong flow of cool air may cause the plants to become overdried. Air socks help to distribute cool air flow equally and at a low speed throughout the room, which ensures as comfortable conditions as possible for flower storage and helps them retain their appearance for a long time.
      Fabric ducting for offices and business centres
      Air socks, unlike metallic ducts, feature a much greater variety of color and shape, which allows them to be used in office facilities where requirements for their appearance are often of the utmost importance. The nature of air ducts’ material allows for various images to be printed on them. With the use of TEXAIR's air ducts, even the ventilation system may feature the corporate color and the customer's company logo.
      Fabric ducting for ice arena
      Ice arenas are the areas where a lot of people spend some nervious moments, being as a sportsmen or public. So they needs to have enough quality air for feeling good. From the different points of view, textile air socks are the best solution for this purpose.

      Why are we chosen as a fabric ventilation manufacturer?

      TEXAIR textile air ducts offer an absolute variety of options with the highest quality products and the fastest possible calculation and fabrication times.

      How to choose a fabric duct

      Choosing the fabric air duct shape

      Air socks can come in different geometric shapes, such as a circle, a semi-circle, a segment, as well as a triangular or rectangular cross section. This offers a means for them to be used in a variety of facilities, since their shape allows the ducts to be adapted to any of the customer’s requirements.

      Circular shape ducts
      Circular shape ducts are used in the case that there are no limitations as to the height of the suspension away from the floor/ceiling. The diameter of the duct in this case will be as small as possible for such an air flow.
      Semi-circular shaped ducts are used, as a rule, in facilities with low ceilings. In this case, we can augment the distance from the duct to the work area, which has a positive effect on the air’s distribution. Also, an option in this instance is the use of segment-shaped ducts.
      Semi-circular shaped ducts
      Quarter-shaped air ducts
      Quarter-shaped air ducts find use in offices, conference halls, production facilities, and other types of facilities where ventilation for various reasons cannot be situated at the center of the facility, but rather much be placed along the walls
      Rectangular-shaped air ducts are usually used for exhaust. Their shape is supported by an aluminum shape frame.
      Rectangular-shaped air ducts

      Fabric selection for textile duct

      Proper selection of the duct’s fabric requires data on the system purpose (for heating, ventilation, conditioning), the temperature of the air to be supplied, the type of facility, as well as any special conditions exist that must be taken into account (high temperature, moisture, clean facility, aggressive environment, etc.). High-quality fabrics, that we use for production with base and coating of various kinds (polyester, glass fiber, polyurethane, silicon, etc.) allow to manufacture ducts suitable for work at any facility, regardless of its special factors and the complexity.

      TEXAIR system of round and semi-circular ducts are made of air permeable fabric, perfect for climate control systems used for cooling. The special feature of the TEXAIR air permeable fabric is the constant air permeability value of its fabric under a certain pressure. The air permeability of the fabrics allows the air to be distributed at the low temperature without the risk of condensation formation. TEXAIR ducts are equally efficient with the use of large and small volumes of supplied air, and the air distribution is accounted for individually in each facility. Depending on the required climatic conditions, TEXAIR experts select one of eight types of fabric for the customer’s particular objectives.

      Also TEXAIR ducts are produced out of air-impermeable fabrics. The air supply goes through calibrated perforation along the entire duct, which allows it to be used both in ordinary and very high facilities.

      The scheme programs developed by TEXAIR engineers allows for the necessary perforation angle, size, and number of holes to be calculated for each duct segment. This allows for precise air distribution to be achieved in facilities. Depending on what one’s needs are, one can use materials with various additional characteristics – augmented durability, fireproofness, chemical resistance, etc. These air socks are supplied with in a broad color range as well.
