Fabric Duct

Posi-Flow Fabric Air Diffusion Ducts transfer and evenly distribute air to a room or an entire building in the most economical and efficient way. Tubing is used as a direct replacement for traditional sheet metal duct. Posi-Flow is installed in areas with open ceilings and is used for supply air only. They can be used for any application that requires air to be distributed or transferred. Typically it is used in class rooms, warehouses, indoor swimming pools, supermarkets, manufacturing facilities, sports arenas, large tents and paint booths.
