SimpleSox Fabric HVAC Duct Line Adds Porous Fabrics and Silver
SimpleSox is industry's first modular, field-adjustable,
in-stock fabric ductwork system with fast, next-day shipping
a leading textile HVAC air dispersion systems manufacturer, now
offers a porous fabric and a silver color option to its SimpleSox™
product line--the HVAC industry’s first field-adjustable, modular,
configurable and fully-stocked fabric ductwork system for smaller,
non-plan/specification ventilation applications.
The UL-classified SimpleSox is designed for HVAC contractors and
maintenance staffs with simple design-build
heating/cooling/ventilating projects of 6,000-cfm or less, such as
commercial facility build-outs or floor plan reconfigurations,
manufacturing/warehouse industrial plant retrofits, retail strip
center tenant improvement projects, or any other open ceiling
Corrosion-resistant SimpleSox's new porosity features
condensation-free air conditioning. Third-party tests by
Bioenvironmental Structural Systems (BESS) at the University of
Illinois, Champaign, Ill., have proven condensation doesn't occur on
porous fabric ductwork as it does on metal ductwork devoid of
labor-intensive insulation treatments or pricey insulated double
wall construction. The porosity breathes a small portion of supply
air through the fabric to create a thin layered buffer zone of
tempered air and prevent condensation on the cooler duct surface by
the room's warmer, humid ambient air.
Porous SimpleSox also has high-throw airflow capabilities via its
patented, two-foot-long Adjustable Air Outlet (AAO). The AAO is a
versatile four-orifice component, which can be zippered anywhere
into the duct run and offer a variety of throw distances, volume and
direction that surpass metal duct/register system capabilities.
Another SimpleSox addition is an intermediate 10-foot long section
to complement its existing round 15, 5 and 1.5-foot modular lengths
of porous or non-porous polyester-woven, fabric ranging in five
diameters of 12, 16, 20, 24 and 28-inches that accommodate up to
6,000-cfm per run.

Other newly added
SimpleSox components include the Twisty, a flexible connecting
length that stretches from 36 to 72-inches and can be twisted to
circumvent pipe, beams and other obstructions without using 90
and 45-degree elbows. A cross and a reducer have also been added
to SimpleSox's full line of porous and non-porous fittings and
DuctSox also offers customer support, an installation manual,
literature and online pricing/sizing guides.
