Gilberts brings 1970s office into 21st century

Facilities management expert Apleona HSG, on behalf of Royal Sun Alliance, is refurbishing part of a 1970s office to bring it into the 21st century.

The existing ventilation system required some big changes to create something more efficient, so a new unified solution was created, with new grilles and new variable air volume boxes.

Consultant Ernest Griffiths chose Gilberts Blackpool to supply its Gilberts GSFH fixed swirl diffusers for installation in the ceiling, behind perforated tiles, balanced with LN linear bar grilles along the window sills and underneath the bulkhead of the large glazed areas, NV3 door transfer grilles and, in the toilets, DGA4 extract vents.

Gilberts GSF diffusers offer a patented design, using radial vanes behind a perforated face to allow the introduction of high levels of air horizontally across the ceiling with rapid entrainment and intermixing.

The LN linear bar grilles have bars fitted flush with the flange face, angled at Capital Building to 15 degrees to ensure airflow without draughts. Gilberts’ NV3 door transfer grilles allow Regulatory flow of fresh air whilst being vision proof. The DGA4 vents in the toilets feature a louvred face for a horizontal air pattern.

Ross MacGugan of Ernest Griffiths, explains: “Gilberts’ grilles and diffusers were the most suitable technically and aesthetically for the project. The company’s technical team visited to assist with the design and specification.”
