Supplying Air Where Needed
TPG has completed more than 200 air system installations over the past decade. We have a broad range of experience in this area with two product families.
Texvent - Flexible Air Ducting
Texvent is a lightweight, versatile, distribution or transfer ducting system, which is cost effective and easy to install. The textile is 100% synthetic, and is manufactured from a flame retardant material that has undergone rigorous testing by RINA and has succesfully met all the releveant requirements of SOLAS. It allows HVAC systems to keep pace with changes brought by increased out-of-area operations, higher heat loads experienced when additional electrical equipment is fitted, or there is a need for a superior alternative to traditional ducting and distribution materials.
The advantages are:
- Quiet and draught free - for a comfortable environment.
- Easy to fit and remove - reduces installation and maintenance costs.
- Easy to clean - just unzip sections and wash in a washing machine.
- Easy to balance - even when adding to existing systems.
- Lightweight - for ease of transport and installation.
The ducts are made from porous, fire retardant fabric. Air bleeds through the weave at low velocity throughout the trunking giving quiet, draught-free, uniform ventilation. For some applications, self-clearing slots are incorporated, ensuring texvent remains effective even when dirty.
Texvent is attached to lightweight support rails via a bolt rope sewn into the fabric. Sections slide into the rail and zip together giving a flexible system, easy to reconfigure or remove for cleaning.
TPG transfer ducting is just as flexible as the Texvent product but uses a sealed fabric to prevent air loss through the fabric wall. In addition it has a double wall and uses quasi-static air as an insulating layer to eliminate condensation and ensure minimal heat transfer to cold or from warm air. This is a light and flexible system that has many advantages over rigid ductwork.
