Gilberts of Blackpool Air Aesthetics

Office building services aesthetics can be enhanced with a new offering from Gilberts Blackpool.

Britain’s leading independent air movement specialist has extended its range of ceiling and sidewall linear diffusers with the addition of a high capacity slot option.

Designed to meet today’s exacting performance requirements and design considerations, the Series HSL, with its wider standard slot width, can achieve as much as 150l/s/m through two slots with a ceiling or wall cut-out of just 161mm.

Horizontal and vertical air distribution can be finitely controlled without draughts by independent positioning of the directional control vane in each of the slots. A comprehensive range of plenum boxes enables an easy, airtight connection of the diffusers to most commercial ventilation systems.

Airflow through the Series HSL can be altered every 2m as standard; insertion of blade cuts and spacer brackets enable alteration to be made at smaller intervals if required. Long runs can be achieved quickly and easily with an unbroken appearance via Gilberts’ concealed alignment feature.

In-plane and curved Series HSL units are also available as standard, with a range of border styles to integrate into popular ceiling types. A new plaster border option allows the outer frame to be completely plastered over and concealed so that almost nothing shows.

“As the construction industry recovers, aesthetics are playing more of a part in component selection. Series HSL combines up to date styling and design technology,” explains Gilberts’ sales director Ian Rogers. “Gilberts has a reputation for its engineering design and quality, a reputation which is being supported by the benefits we are bringing to market with our new high capacity slot diffuser.”

Gilberts is one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of grilles and louvres, and a growing force in the design and supply of natural ventilation solutions for the public and commercial sectors. The company is unique in its sector in manufacturing every component in house- even as far as designing and engineering its own tools and dies in its own tool making facility.
