DuctSox Corporation, headquartered in Peosta, Iowa, is a manufacturer of commercial and industrial fabric air dispersion products for open ceiling architecture, critical environments, and under floor applications. Our fabric systems are a cost effective, aesthetically attractive alternative to metal ductwork and diffusers. They are easy to install, have low material waste on the jobsite, and offer many other Green advantages. Our products have been accepted within key industry organizations such as ASHRAE, Underwriters Laboratories (U.S. & Canada), International Code Council, and many building authorities throughout the world.
Different than conventional metal, fabric products are engineered and manufactured for each project. DuctSox designs can be simple, straight systems or very intricate layouts which incorporate fittings such as radius elbows, Ts, and transitions. Sections are zippered together to form extended lengths with diameters from 6 to 80 inches. Whether industrial, retail, education, commercial, government, warehousing, laboratory, food processing, temporary or permanent, DuctSox offers a proven choice.
To maintain market leadership, DuctSox offers the best products, designs, and sales support in our industry. More than maintaining our standard products, DuctSox strives to be the leader in the HVAC ductwork industry through our commitment to quality, service, and innovation. This commitment has allowed us to expand our product offering to include products such as LabSox laboratory ductwork, KitchenSox commercial kitchen ductwork, UFSox underfloor ductwork, and SkeleCore, an internal framework system for fabric duct.
Simplified Design/Uniform Air Dispersion: This means less ductwork! Because the entire DuctSox System is a diffuser, air can be supplied to the occupied space in a more efficient pattern. DuctSox Systems may be designed with fittings similar to metal ductwork, including many standard zippered fittings and unlimited customization to match any application requirements.

KitchenSox offer commercial kitchens a solution to drafts that affect hood performance, cleanliness, food safety, and employee comfort. Air is dispersed through a fabric faced D-Fuser reducing drafts and condensation.
Two other products available for Critical Environments include: ChemSox (for caustic environments) and the D-Fuser Filter (for critical environments experiencing airborne pollution).
Features and Benefits:
LabSox products are not only ideal for labs of the future, but can be easily retrofitted to resolve air flow issues in existing facilities.
KitchenSox are textile air dispersion products that provide unique solutions for commercial and industrial kitchens & food preparation environments.
Effluent, heat, and odors can quickly contaminate kitchens and food prep areas. There are many common problems associated with poor air dispersion-problems that can occur even when proper exhaust equipment is in place. KitchenSox can alleviate the following:
DuctSox were initially developed to disperse refrigerated airflow in food processing facilities. Kitchens are different, but benefit from the fabric in many of the same ways. Generally smaller in size, sizing and locating the textile air dispersion panels in kitchens can be a challenge. To be flexible for optimum design, KitchenSox solutions are available in a wide variety of products.
As buildings and their HVAC systems age, non-metallic components such as linings within duct or equipment, gaskets, and other dirt build up may become airborne. Commonly these particles are introduced downstream from filtration equipment, allowing the particles to travel freely into critical research, food preparation, or many other sensitive environments.
If your environment is suffering from airborne pollution such as black spec or other debris from your ducting system, the DuctSox D-Fuser Filter may be the solution.
To accommodate a variety of applications, the D-Fuser Filter is available in 24x24 and 24x48 configurations. To accommodate desired airflow characteristics, the Filter Panel is available in either a flat or a 6" deep disposable face.
The D-Fuser Filter is available in either MetalPan or Retrofit configuration. The MetalPan option includes a 6" deep metal backpan and selection includes inlet diameter. Retrofit models utilize existing backpans and are best suited for T-Bar ceiling installations. Custom configurations are also available.
With initiatives to provide efficient HVAC systems with individual controls, many design teams are turning to UFAD techology. Unlike conventional overhead air-mixing systems, UFAD Systems use the space beneath the raised access floor as a plenum to introduce air into the occupied space, usually through special floor-mounted diffusers.
Typical applications that employ UFAD design are in high tech office and business spaces utilizing cable for voice, power and data transmission. UFAD Systems are becoming increasingly accepted in commercial building space as the benefits, which are well documented by ASHRAE.
