Specification validation with Gilberts Blackpool

  • 11 Jul 2018

To be sure a design will deliver the performance required within a building, look no further than the expertise within Gilberts Blackpool.

The UK’s leading independent air movement manufacturer offers state of the art techniques to simulate and test a ventilation design in advance of on site installation.

Using computation fluid dynamics (CFD) software, Gilberts can run the proposed ventilation/air movement design to validate its performance, in accordance with air changes, air quality, temperature.

Necessary alterations can then be made to the strategy if needed, and retested, to guarantee the target performance criteria will be met once the ventilation is installed and the building occupied.

Ian Leonard, Gilberts R&D manager, commented: “The permutations affecting a ventilation strategy are almost infinite, so trying to execute all the necessary calculations and validate a strategy is time consuming, especially as other influencing factors in the building design may be changed along the way.

“Our CFD is a cost effective method to minimise- or even eliminate- the need for costly prototypes, and can save significant amounts of time- and money- reworking a strategy by indicating where any potential weaknesses lie.

“It also enables consultants and contractors to test different theories and strategies at the design stage, to achieve the best value solution for each project.”

The CFD service is just one part of Gilberts’ personal service, which also features in-house design and development of bespoke components, remodelling of standard products, and testing at its in-house laboratory.
