The ductwork used to distribute air for climate control in many buildings is frequently exposed to view. The authors argue that for aesthetic and practical reasons (dampening noise, uniform air distribution, flexible layout and light supports), fabric ducts are a sensible option. The permeability characteristics of materials, how to determine them and the application of the measured permeabilities to design are discussed.
