Gilberts air movement grilles and diffusers have been used at Aryshire College’s new £50+ million Kilmarnock Campus.
Stothers M&E, working on behalf of main contractor McLuaghlin & Harvey, specified air movement grilles and diffusers from Gilberts Blackpool to be used as a key component of the ventilation strategy throughout the 17,000m2 campus.
Gilberts’ DGA Type four-way diffusers and GSLS linear slot diffusers were chosen to ensure adequate flow of fresh air throughout the four-storey main building.
Slothers’ Gareth Hewitt explained: “The diversity usage of the campus meant a complex strategy was needed to address the ventilation requirements, ranging from areas with a high air volume to rooms with potential high heat gain.
“Our solution was a mixture of natural ventilation, heat recovery with air handling units, and fan coils all integrated into a BMS. We knew Gilberts’ range of grilles and diffusers would integrate neatly into the building fabric and the diverse ventilation systems.”
Gilberts’ DGA/4 louvred face ceiling diffusers provide four-way blow with a maximum cooling differential of 12 degrees celsius through the ceiling, be it plasterboard or suspended. GSLS slimline linear slot diffusers feature a unique air deflection control vane.
The design enabled Stothers, via one core unit, to achieve smooth, accurate airflow horizontally or vertically, left or right, across the ceiling, and adjoining lengths as required, to the exact requirements of each area to be ventilated.
