Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Oct2007, Vol. 79 Issue 10, p38
The article discusses the use of fabric duct at the Wild WaterDome facility at the Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort in Wisconsin. The use of the duct allowed air distribution, eliminated drafts and air stratification because of the options for direction and volume of airflow. Although the fabric duct cost an estimated $230,000 in material and labor, vice-president of operations for Kilgust Mechanical Jason Beren says that the installation of fabric duct resulted in huge savings.
