Waterloo barrel slot diffuser gives design flexibility in large spaces

Waterloo Air Products has launched a larger barrel slot diffuser to give architects and building engineers greater flexibility in designing air-movement systems. The CSB 25 barrel slot diffuser is described as offering a stylish, multi-directional answer to optimising airflow in large spaces.

Mat Southgate, product and development manager with Waterloo, explains, ‘There’s been a real trend towards “bigger and better” in commercial projects, and now it’s happening in residential developments too. Architects are using high ceilings to give more of a design impact in luxury apartments and even creating double-storey reception areas to achieve a stunning first impression.

‘Pushing the boundaries like this has an effect on air flow, meaning that larger slot diffusers are needed to deliver air into these spaces.’

These slot diffuser have 100 mm-long barrels that can be positioned to deliver air precisely to the left, right or vertically — giving building engineers the flexibility to create dynamic, multi-directional air movement.

The narrow cross-section gives a sleek appearance within the overall room design.

The diffuser’s aesthetics are enhanced with a rounded fascia, and they can be ordered in any RAL colour. There is a range of finishes for an eye-catching effect or to blend into the existing environment.
