Commercial buildings

Built in 1986, SCA Centre distribution center decided to expand in 2014 to become a 45,000 m3 central purchasing centre employing about 200 people. The aim was to increase storage capacity in order to supply 75% of E. Leclerc stores located in central France with food items, liquids and household & personal care products.

SCA Centre was equipped with evaporator refrigeration systems (made by the company MONDIAL FRIGO) combined with a network of F2A fabric ducts to ensure optimum air control in the building.

Aeraulic requirements:

Selected solution:

A network of TEXI-DUCT waterproof fabric ducts that would direct the air towards diffusion ducts was made specially to order. To meet temperature and air speed requirements, our aeraulics design office chose TEXI-PULSE  induction fabric ducts that diffuse air through mesh slots. This slot diffusion solution offers very high airflow per linear metre (> 500m³/h/lm).

To meet limited space requirements, the TEXI-PULSE diffusion ducts were designed as oblong, bowstring or semi-circular shapes and combined with special stainless steel supports with plates on the underside of the tile to save extra space.

In order to meet fire safety requirements, installed ducts were designed to meet the M1 (non-flammable) fire classification.                                                                                                                                                                      For health and hygiene reasons, stainless steel cables were used to support the ducts.



F2A Solution:

In total, F2A supplied over 700 metres of Ø1600 mm TEXI-PULSE and TEXI-DUCT fabric ducts, with a reduced diameter of 900 mm at the end of the network to ensure optimum diffusion along the entire duct. TEXI-PULSE ducts are made out of polyester while the TEXI-DUCT range is made out of stronger PVC fabric.
