DuctSox Fabric Air Dispersion Installed in Aquatic Center Pool Area

Aquatic Center Ductwork & Swimming Pool Ventilation

Customizable Airflow Solutions

Pool environments are particularly sensitive to airflow design and control. DuctSox systems are the perfect solution for proper air dispersion for aquatic centers, indoor pools, and natatoriums. Each system offers the user better air delivery/mixing than traditional metal swimming pool ductwork and the corrosion resistant components, energy efficiency, ease of installation and minimal maintenance make it the ideal choice for long life and exceptional performance in this demanding application.


DuctSox understands that no two facilities are alike. Because of this each system is designed to meet the specifications for each space to ensure optimum performance placing the correct amount of airflow where it’s needed.

Pool with DuctSox

Case Study: Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation & Aquatic Center

DuctSox helped this aquatic center install anti-microbial fabric ductwork in the pool area. The DuctSox team created a layout to ensure that air distribution around the pool was uniform. The fabric that the DuctSox team has chosen for this product allows this entire duct to act as a diffuser, which further increases uniformity and eliminates hot and cold spots.

The team at the aquatic center chosen this ductwork because cleanliness and appearance were important factors. With the ease that fabric ductwork can be cleaned compared to metal ductwork, it made more sense as a long-term solution for pool ventilation.

Cedar Rapids Pool with DuctSox

Case Study: Cedar Rapids School

DuctSox products were used in a retrofit design for a project that was done quickly, over 2 months in the summer. This project featured custom color ductwork to match the school’s colors.

This fabric ductwork was designed to keep an inflated distraction in order to eliminate the distraction and noise of roll-outs during air handler startup. Fabric is a good retrofit choice because it is less labor-intensive than replacing metal ductwork in terms of the weight of the ductwork you’re handling. This project was designed for long term energy savings and to provide optimal learning environments with unprecedented air comfort.

Why Fabric?

Reduce Lifetime Ownership Costs

Why Fabric?

For decades, traditional metal units that moved air throughout a facility were commonly referred to as “ductwork.” Each system requiring a variety of components to achieve proper airflow. When fabric was introduced a few decades ago, it was referred to as “fabric ductwork” or “fabric ducting.” The reality is fabric provides a complete air dispersion system that performs in ways that metal cannot.

Case Study

MLK Aquatic Center

Martin Luther King Recreation & Aquatics Center incorporated a wide range of amenities—including a gymnasium, an elevated track, an outdoor terrace, a climbing wall, group fitness areas, a senior center and a computer room—the facility’s centerpiece was the aquatics area. The unique functionality of indoor pools and natatoriums gives them a host of issues other public buildings don’t have to deal with, including temperature, humidity and air quality management.
