Course Description: AEC Daily: Textile Air Dispersion: Smart, Sustainable, Comfortable
Textile air dispersion systems have come a long way from the days of cotton diffusers and duct socks. Today’s systems are custom engineered and constructed from advanced polyester fabrics that offer features and capabilities not possible with other air distribution systems. This course examines the similarities and differences between metal and fabric systems and highlights the design, performance, efficiency, and sustainability characteristics unique to textile air dispersion. As well, the wide-ranging application possibilities for textile systems are explored.
Explain the similarities and differences between textile air dispersion systems and traditional metal systems.
Identify sustainable aspects of textile air dispersion systems, including the use of recyclable materials.
Recall how using textile systems offers comfort and safety to occupants by providing improved ventilation and sound attenuation and through the use of fire-retardant materials.
Discuss the basic design, installation, and maintenance considerations for textile air dispersion systems, highlighting system performance, occupant safety, and cost efficiency.
