Project overview

According to the drawing and data of the device provided, The Exhibition halls have been designed to provide a column-free space over an area of 22,000m² and can be divided into five different halls. Inputted Based on the data of the building and air handling unit, Durkee engineering team recommended a solution:

32 pcs Durkee fabric ducts were designed with 16m of installation height to disperse air drafts from 6 O'clock directions with largest air velocity range from 10-14 m/s so that the airflow to make sure the availability, CFDsimulation for the solution were conducted by engineering team to make sure the performance is in line with the theory of design on the aspect of temperature field, velocity field and humidity field. Thus, the A/C air will be dispersed evenly to the targeted area with great comforts and minimized the energy waste.

Durkee, as the leading brand of fabric ducting solution provider worldwide, is your best partner to meet the rigorous LEED certification!
