Description Air Discharge


The VSD35 type slot diffuser is available with 1-4 slots. The diffuser face is a one piece extrusion so there are no visible joints. The type VSD35 can be used in rooms with ceiling heights from approx. 2.6 m to 4.0 m. The low overall height means that the slot diffusers are particularly suitable for use in restricted ceiling voids and in suspended ceiling systems. They are characterised by high induction which results in a rapid decay in supply air temperature differential and air discharge velocity. The recommended supply air temperature differential range is 10 K. Because of their stable discharge characteristics the slot diffusers are suitable for use in systems with constant and variable volume flows. The direction of the air discharge can be adapted to the required room conditions. The air control blades are set at the factory to the customer's requirements as stated on the order. If the discharge directions have to be subsequently changed, this can easily be done on site by rotating the air control blades.

Variants AK, DK and AA of the diffuser face are supplied with a plenum box fitted to the rear, while variant DK is provided with internal lining. On variants AS and DS, the face sections with flange B00 can be connected on site to the mounted plenum boxes. The supply air is connected via the circular side entry spigot, with or without sealing lip, which is optionally available with a volume control damper which can be adjusted on the face of the diffuser. The face sections are available without edge flange 000 or with integral edge flange B00. Matching end caps are available for the diffuser faces, in the form of end angles or end plates. The fish plates on the joints are also included in the scope of supply, to enable the alignment and interconnection of individual L 1 sections.

Installation Details
Figure 1
Standard method of installation for slot diffusers via suspension on four suspension points provided on the plenum box. Suitable installation and fixing materials to be provided on site.

Figure 3
The volume control damper can be adjusted from the front face of the diffuser. To this end, adjust the air control blade below the spigot until the butterfly damper can be adjusted using a screwdriver or rod (max. diameter 3.5 mm, length up to approx. 230 mm, depending on neck extension).

Figure 2
In order to retrofit the diffuser face to the plenum box (AS, DS), the concealed fixing brackets which are supplied with the diffuser must be slid onto the face section. The tongue of the concealed fixing bracket must be positioned lengthways to the face section. Slide face section with concealed fixing bracket into the neck of the plenum box. Turn the screwdriver until the tongue is in a crosswise position, then turn the screwdriver further to tighten the cheese-head screw. Please check that this screw is tight! Dismantling is carried out by reversing the procedure.

Figure 4
When the slot diffusers are installed in linear configuration, the face sections are aligned by inserting the supplied alignment pins and/or fish plates. The alignment pins and fish plates (2 per section) are first fitted on one side and then slid approximately half way into the other face section (see also page 6).
