Construction Equipment: Ductsox Fabric Ducting

Randy Fromberg offers a little expertise on fabric ducting to Construction Equipment:

When thinking of building materials, we think of wood, steel and concrete. Fabric is for the interior decorator. But according to Randall E. Fromberg, president of Fromberg Associates Ltd., fabric duct is the fastest growing air distribution alternative in open-ceiling architecture designs, which include warehouses, industrial plants, big box retail, sports arenas, gymnasiums, and large lobbies.

While many architects and consulting engineers still don't specify fabric ductwork, the architect firm Fromberg Associates Ltd. of Austin has specified fabric duct in over 10 gymnasiums and cafeterias it has designed over the last eight years.

"I guess we're a little more cutting edge than some other architects; we are always looking for ways to add value to our client's budget," Fromberg admitted.
