Polyester powder coating
The majority of grilles and diffusers shown in the catalogue can be polyester powder coated to any RAL or BS colour. Some products cannot be powder coated due to plastic parts etc. Please see the table.

Nylon coating
A specialist finish, nylon coating is used in favour of polyester coating where extreme durability or resistance to static electricity build up is needed. These qualities mean computer room floor grilles are often nylon coated, as static electricity build-ups in data centres can be disasterous.

Acoustic louvres Series AL


Using a two part hollow aluminium blade forming a cavity which is then filled with mineral wool, acoustic louvres prevent noise transfer without impeding airflow. Available in 150mm, 300mm (standard) and 600mm deep models.

Sand trap louvres Series STL


Designed to be the first stage of filtration, sand trap louvres catch and collect airbourne particles like sand and grit which would otherwise clog up finer filters inside the ventilation system. Constructed from two banks of interlocking vertical channels, all straight paths through the unit are eliminated. Any caught material then falls onto the slanted cill and is ejected through the front of the louvre.

BSRIA testing to BS EN 13181:2001


Tested by BSRIA to BS EN 13181:2001, sand trap louvres have been proven over 90% effective at 0.5m/s wind velocity, and over 60% effective at 1 m/s wind velocity.

External louvre range


High performance louvres - Class A Series HPL
With the addition of two banks of vertical channels behind a standard louvre, high performance louvres have been tested to confirmed to give Class A levels of rain protection at velocities up to 0.5m/s. The channels prevent any straight path through the unit, catching any rain or spray which made it past the louvre blades. This caught water then falls onto a special slanted drip cill which quickly ejects it through the louvre face.

Penthouse louvres Series PHL


Commonly used in natural ventilation systems, penthouse louvres are perfect for high efficiency installations, like the new generation of school buildings and hospitals. Class A Penthouse Louvres can be manufactured using the same blade arrangement as high performance louvres shown above.

Options include: Doors. Internal dividers (insulated or un-insulated). Flat, single slant, double slant and HIP roofs.

External louvre options


Polyester powder coating
All louvres shown in the catalogue can be polyester powder coated to any RAL or BS colour.

Bird mesh
Screwed to the back of louvre blades, bird mesh prevents large objects like leaves, rubbish and birds being able to penetrate the louvre. Bird mesh has no real effect on airflow.

Nylon coating
A specialist finish, nylon coating is used in favour of polyester coating where extreme durability or resistance to static electricity build up is needed.

Insect mesh
With much smaller gaps than bird mesh, insect mesh prevents all but the smallest objects penetrating the louvre. The vast majority of insects and debris are caught.

Fixing methods
Although normally drilled on site, louvres can be supplied with face fixing holes in the flange, or rear mounted fixing lugs.

Insect mesh will reduce a louvres free area.

Plastic dampers for natural ventilation

Overview Ultra high shut off Excellent corrosion resistance


The revolutionary uPVC Volume control damper incorporates a copyrighted and never before seen feature for a plastic volume damper. Its unprecedented performance originates with the unique Eccentric Aerofoil blade design. This unieu, incorporates a blade with an off centre axis. This enables the edge seal to be complete, and uninterrupted by blade axles. Combine this with the integrated, specially designed blade nose seal which fuses the blades together on closure, a performance emulating that of a full shut off damper is achieved, whilst still providing the excellent functionality of a traditional volume control damper.

uPVC volume control damper showing total seal

Specifications:
Materials: Extruded uPVC frame and blades. Integrated flexible plastic blade nose seals. Brush side seals. Rolled steel section inside each blade for reinforcement (not exposed to airstream). Stainless steel screws to join frame (not exposed to airstream). Finish: Sizes: White. Minimum size 300mm x 300mm / 300mm . Maximum size 1000mm x 1000mm / 1000mm . Above these sizes units would be made in sections.

Corrosion resistance In coastal or swimming pool applications, traditional steel dampers will corrode very quickly. uPVC on the other hand has excellent resistance to salt and chlorine, and cannot rust.

Precision linkage Manufactured from highly corrosion resistant materials, the custom designed gearset is so precise it can drive up to 10 blades and cogs with very limited play, for maximum performance even at large sizes.

Ultra high shut off


In independent tests, large format uPVC volume control dampers yielded leakage results normally only achieved by dedicated shut off dampers. The VCD sent for testing had a nominal size of 1000mm x 806mm, the large size tantamount to our confidence in the damper. With even 10Pa rarely being exceeded in natural ventilation situations, it is clear how uPVC volume control dampers can enhance the efficiency of your new natural ventilation system. Leakage (1000mm x 806mm uPVC VCD) m3/s 10Pa 25Pa 50Pa 75Pa 100Pa 150Pa 0 0.000857 0.002850 0.004975 0.005398 0.007909 m3/hr/m 0 0.29 0.97 1.69 1.83 2.68 m3/hr/m2 0 3.83 12.73 22.22 24.11 35.33

No cold bridge
Close a steel or aluminium volume control damper, and you will go on losing heat, not through airflow but conduction of heat from one side to the other. HVC large format uPVC volume control dampers have a theoretical U value of 0.973W/m2K when closed, atleast 40 times better than a steel damper and 250 times better than an aluminium unit. Of course this can help to cut heating bills, and reduces the carbon footprint of any building using them. *Figures sourced from www.engineeringtoolbox.com Thermal conductivity of steel and aluminium* Steel W/mK Btu 40 23.12 Aluminium 250 144.46
