Advancing ventilation systems

TEXVENT™ is a patented total textile ventilation technology system that meets the requirements of mission and operation critical environments, from naval platforms to field hospitals. TEXVENT™ diffuses air at low speed through the duct’s porous textile wall and dedicated slots. This air diffusion method provides homogenous ventilation with no hot spots, enabling a draught free environment that is more comfortable for personnel.

The synthetic high quality porous textile is manufactured using flame-retardant material, rigorously tested by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) ; the Italian classification society in accordance with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Fire Test Procedure Code, and Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations.

This system achieves an efficient, cost-effective, extremely quiet, and easy to install ventilation system – as an alternative or replacement for traditional hard
ducting. This versatility enables customers to keep pace with changes including increased out of area operations, and higher thermal loads experienced when fitting additional electrical equipment.

Delivering benefits

TEXVENT™ is an advanced ventilation system offering:

  • 25% energy savings
  • 93% lighter than metal ducts
  • Secondary filtration: further improving quality of air supplied
  • Easily maintainable: detachable and washable
  • Noise reduction: air diffused uniformly at much lower velocity
  • Low space requirements and easy to fit : ducts can be compressed, twisted and passed through existing piping
  • Greater safety: no risks of shock injuries
