Subject: Ductsox


From: Lisa Kronthal <kronth<-a>

We are investigating a product called 'Ductsox' for installation in
an off-site storage facility as a cost-effective alternative to
traditional steel ductwork.  Just wondering if anyone has had
experience using such fabric air dispersion products.  Specifically:

    Do these systems perform at the levels of traditional steel
    ductwork, specifically concerning strict parameters for
    temperature and RH?

    Are there difficulties in maintenance of/cleaning the systems?

    Can they provide the levels of filtration demanded in
    collections storage areas?

Any other comments or experiences you have would be appreciated.
