Having a fabric duct offers many benefits such as low cost, lightweight and easy installation, a uniform distribution of air, and a wide spectrum of available colors and sizes. The lightweight nature of fabric ducting provides the hoses with these benefits and makes them ideal for a wide variety of air transfer applications. Though fabric hose can be utilized in a variety of residential, commercial, and industrial applications, one of its most popular uses is in ventilation. The airing out of interior spaces is a critically important part of many workplaces and homes; our modern society would most likely not be able to function in our urban environments without extended networks of HVAC and ventilation commercial hoses. At Ducting.com, we feature a wide selection of fabric hose products that to meet the large spectrum of lightweight ducting application demands.
All of the fabric ducting products we have to offer are dipped in plastic or rubber materials such as PVC and neoprene. Coating the fabric in these materials gives your fabric duct extra resistance to harsh chemicals that may be transferred through the ducts as well as improved operating temperature ranges. Having an extra coating to the fabric hose also provides you with extra resistance to any potential external abrasions. In addition to the protective coating, several of our products also come with an external wear strip to provide protection to the hose when being dragged across abrasive materials such as gravel and asphalt.
PVC vinyl coated polyester fabric hose is one of the most commonly implemented types of flex duct hose on the market today. The coating of PVC makes the hose more durable and adds flex fatigue strength allowing the hose to flex continuously wiohtout damage. PVC vinyl coated fabric hose is also typically sold with a plethora of different sizes. This variety in size means that, no matter what your situation, we are almost sure to have the right type of flex duct hose in stock for you. Additionally, the temperature resistance of this kind of flexible duct hose is nothing to sneeze at either; vinyl coated polyester fabric hose can withstand temperatures up to a searing 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Never worry about these commercial hoses becoming damaged when used outside or in cramped, stuffy conditions.
The lightweight nature of fabric ducting also provides the added benefits of flexibility and compressibility. Because of the flexible nature of the lightweight fabric, our fabric hose products can be turned and maneuvered without causing a kink in the ducting and maintains an excellent air flow. For this reason these flex hoses exhibit great flex fatigue. The lightweight construction of the hoses also allows the ducting to be extremely compressible. Our fabric ducting products feature up to a ten to one compression ratio, which results in easy storage and transportation. The compressibility of the fabric allows you to install a fabric duct that can be taken down and moved as required to meet the needs of your air and fume applications.
