Functionality that slots seamlessly into interior aesthetics is delivered with the latest evolution at Gilberts Blackpool – the new Jumbo Slot Linear Diffuser (JSL) optimises the blending of design with provision of essential building services through ceilings and walls.
Gilberts’ in-house R&D team has applied state-of-the-art physics principles, validated in the company’s in-house test laboratory.
The result is a high capacity single slot diffuser that provides coanda or vertical throw or angled projection. It utilises a unique twin adjustable blade system to modulate airflow between 20-250l//s/metre.
The blades are designed and configured to provide a continuous slot unbroken by fixing plates, giving a seamless ‘shadowgap’ appearance.
JSL is available in 30, 40, 50, 60 and 80mm widths, and 2000mm lengths as standard. The design allows for continuous runs of any length to be seamlessly fitted with an unbroken appearance whether flanged or plastered in.
Due to the fact Gilberts manufactured entirely in-house, it can ensure the aesthetics and function follow the design requirements without any impact on airflow distribution.
With Gilberts’ state-of-the-art powder coating facility, JSL can be ordered in any RAL colour (subject to Ts & Cs), to blend into or contrast with its environment.
Once installed, the control vane can be adjusted to provide vertical or horizontal discharge, and varied in each diffuser length if needed. The JSL can provide supply air for all ventilation and air conditioning systems including fan coil and VAV.
Ian Rogers, Gilberts’ Sales Director, jested: “Calling it a jumbo slot linear diffuser is almost a misnomer. It is jumbo in terms of its supply of fresh air, but it gives the semblance of a controlled space between planes rather than a slot!”
He added: “Regardless, good levels of ventilation are essential in any interior. In high-end residential, commercial or leisure developments there is a growing trend for such essentials to blend seamlessly into the overall design ethos, and the optimisation of shadowgaps, whether between horizontal and vertical planes, or two surfaces in the same plane.
“Our JSL is available with a flange or plater-in options for a total seamless look, so meets both criteria, an aesthetic and quality solution.”
Post COVID Lockdown, Gilberts has continued its reputation for innovation, and has already invested in new plant and processes, and re-started its product development, of which JSL is the first post-COVID release.
Already this year it has launched additional REVIT designs for its BIM portfolio, a new smoke evacuation damper, a new slimline version of its core linear grille, and is working on a new and improved range of kitform louvres, to name but a few.
