The main advantages of carbon fiber tubes are that they are very light and very strong. This results in:
Improved safety for workers lifting the tubes above their heads
Reduces the likelihood of damage to the tubes and
The stiffness of the tubes allows the use of bigger fans to pump fresh air over longer distances; ie the carbon fiber tubes won't collapse with the increased pressure.
