Stand alone solution from Gilberts helps occupants to control climate

  • 20 Aug 2019

Air movement specialist, Gilberts Blackpool, is using thermal control to ensure occupants are comfortable without wasting energy or spending time and money connecting ventilation to building management systems.

Thermal control means the ventilation inlet – the swirl diffuser – is a stand-alone solution, that adjusts airflow depending on the internal air temperature. It cleverly provides rapid entrainment and mixing harnessing physics principles to achieve a constant comfortable internal environment, whether warming or cooling is required.

Gilberts’ thermally-controlled diffusers deliver omni-directional, rotating warm air in the vertical, and cool air in a horizontal direction, thereby eliminating draughts whilst providing rapid and efficient initial warm up and eliminating potential cold spots at low level. Depending on the thermal control technology within, they change the air within the internal space in seconds.

Gilberts’ thermally-controlled swirl diffusers are completely self-contained and self-adjusting; there is no need for external connection to a control or building management system, nor human intervention. They can accommodate a range of ceiling supply applications, including exposed ductwork, square ceiling grids, clip-in ceilings and perforated ceilings.

Gilberts’ Sales Director Ian Rogers explains: “The thermal control option simplifies the whole project, be it new build, in-use or refit, in most types of commercial buildings almost irrespective of ceiling height – everywhere from offices to arenas.”

The thermal option compliments manual, electric and pneumatic control methods. To ensure an appropriate, fresh internal environment, Gilberts produces a range of complimentary exhaust swirl units. Gilberts’ swirl diffusers are just part of the company’s range of grilles, louvres and diffusers for natural and mechanical ventilation.
