There are very brilliant and broad development prospects for the industry of the fabric ducts indeed. Iowa State University's Mechanical Engineering Department's CFD analysis in the 10-month-long study has revealed fabric duct is 24.5% more efficient than metal. And the study's demonstration of fabric duct's performance increases shows promise towards the use of fabric ducting systems in the construction of tomorrow's green, energy-efficient buildings.
Compared with traditional metal ventilation ducts, the fabric ducts have many advantages, fabric ducts are very well-suited for efficient, uniform, and draught-free distribution of fresh air without "dead zones". Lightweight not only makes fabric ducts safer on account of reducing the burden for the building but also saves costs.
More importantly, the use of highly permeable textile materials or perforating in the fabric ducts will evenly distribute the air into the environment and make people feel more comfortable. On the one hand, manufacturers can choose textile materials with better permeability. On the other hand, it is also a good choice to make dense small holes in the fabric ducts.
This has to mention the laser perforating process. Using the laser system for laser cutting and perforating in the fabric ducts is really a great choice because the diameter of the laser can reach 0.05 mm to achieve high-precision perforating. Besides, manufacturers can also choose the location, the size, and the shape of the hole according to their needs.
There are many fabric materials related to fabric ducts suitable for laser cutting
1. Classic (PMS, NMS) and Premium (PMI, NMI)
2. Breathable fabric materials (PMS, PMI, PLS) and non-breathable fabric materials (NMS, NMI, NLS, NMR)
3. Lightweight fabric materials (PLS, NLS)
4. Foil fabrics and paint coated fabric materials-Foil (NLF), Plastic (NMF), Glass (NHE), Translucent (NMT)
5. Recycled textile materials (PMSre, NMSre)
