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.

Fabric Ductwork on a Large Scale

Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas NV

Newly built sports and entertainment venues have high roofs and even higher expectations. Ownership teams are looking for revolutionary designs that appeal to fans, deliver a competitive advantage, and often anchor a massive entertainment district intended to revitalize a community.

Architects on this project were tasked with delivering a one-of-a-kind design that, in turn, created multifaceted challenges for the engineering team. One of those challenges was HVAC and air distribution in the vast venue. The complex bowl geometry of the space created a myriad of obstacles for air dispersion, ventilation, and airflow. To maximize the fan, player, and attendee experience, the ability to direct airflow was essential.

Grow Facilities

DuctSox air dispersion products feature innovative options that optimize air movement within plant growth facilities. Plants require water, nutrients, light, and air movement to grow and thrive.The quantity and quality of each may vary by stage of growth and type of plant. In nature, weather patterns drive air movement and can be highly unpredictable. Most indoor growing environments focus closely on water, nutrients, C02, and light exposure to optimize plant growth. From germination to final stages, air movement is an easily overlooked factor.
