Textile ducting solves comfort issues

Textile ducting, ventilation, Prihoda

Uncomfortable and uneven air distribution at Macmillan Publishing have been solved with the design and installation of a fabric ducting system by Prihoda. The problem space has three fan-coil units in an arrangement that caused draughts in some areas and hot spots in others.

Relocating the FCUs would have been a major task, and altering the original ductwork would still have caused draught pocketsó as well as looking unattractive.

Prihoda fabric ducting was seen as the best solution to provide a ventilation system with a consistent delivery of air velocity and an even temperature gradient.

A problem identified during the survey stage was for each fabric duct having to avoid existing services and having to fit between structural steelwork and a cable tray.

The installation has been successful. Once the system had been inflated, the air in the room became evenly cooled.
