Fabric Duct Meets Unique Challenges of University of Chicago Lab Building

September 2008
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2008, Vol. 80 Issue 9, p56
The article reports on the installation of air-system on the research laboratories of University of Chicago in Illinois. It says that John Phillips, laboratory manager, has contracted with mechanical contractors in addressing the issue concerning the lack of air flows on the labs which could result to degrade research instrument's precision. Low-throw fabric ducts were installed on the research facilities providing adequate airflow.
