Sound solution to dramatic facade ventilation with Gilberts

  • 4 Dec 2019

Gilberts is cutting to the chase with its latest evolution of its acoustic, fixed and screening louvres.

The company’s range has been extended and modernised to enable architects to balance a building’s aural and visual impact. 

New to the mix is a choice of continuous and curved blades, complimenting the company’s established linear versions whilst offering the same sound reduction capability.

The arcing blades bring the number of blade profile: acoustic attenuation options now available as standard to 12, either in supply, or supply & fit packages. 

Further adding to the ‘sound and vision’ dimension, all Gilberts’ louvres can be PPC, PVF and PVF2 powder coated to any RAL colour, with the possibility of anodised in some instances, further expanding the louvres’ potential to form an integral part of the building’s aesthetic features.

Engineered as standard from galvanised steel, the louvres can deliver sound transmission loss of up to 33dB, depending on specification, balanced against appropriate free airflow area to allow adequate ventilation of any plant behind.

Louvre banks interface with the exterior building fabric via steelwork frames, cladding or direct to the brickwork.  

Assemblies are produced as standard in sizes 300 x 300 to 1500 x 2000. Using a modular approach on site, louvre screens as long and high as required, even with contouring and graduations, can be designed and fabricated as required.

The entire range of Gilberts’ acoustic louvres is BSRIA (Building Services Research and Information Association) validated.

The acoustic louvre range sits alongside Gilberts’ established ranges of standard and high performance weather louvres.
