Fabric air ducts have become increasingly popular in railway vehicles due to their lightweight and flexible nature. In contrast to traditional metal ducts, fabric ducts can be easily installed in tight spaces and can be bent or shaped to fit the specific layout of a railway vehicle.
Benefits of using fabric ducts in railway vehicles
One of the major benefits of using fabric ducts in railway vehicles is their ability to improve air circulation and temperature control. Fabric ducts are made with laser perforation holes that allow air to pass through, which can help to distribute conditioned air more evenly throughout the vehicle. This can help to create a more comfortable environment for passengers.
In addition to their benefits for air circulation and temperature control, fabric ducts are also highly durable and resistant to damage. They can withstand the rigors of daily use in a railway environment and are less prone to dents or other types of damage compared to metal ducts. This can result in fewer maintenance requirements and lower costs over the life of the railway vehicle.
A few factors to consider
There are a few factors to consider when using fabric ducts in railway vehicles. One is the type of fabric used, as different fabrics can have different properties such as fire resistance (f.e. an HL level of EN45545). It’s also important to ensure that the fabric ducts are properly installed and maintained to ensure optimal performance.
Overall, fabric air ducts can be a great choice for railway vehicles due to their lightweight, flexible, and durable nature. They can help to improve air circulation and temperature control, resulting in a more comfortable environment for passengers. When considering fabric ducting for a railway vehicle, it’s important to choose the right fabric and ensure proper installation and maintenance.
