Giving vent to artistic flair

Gilberts Blackpool, ventilation, grilles, diffusers, louvres

Gilberts Blackpool now offers the capability to hydro-plate its ventilation grilles, diffusers and louvres — enabling any aluminium grille and diffuser profile for interior air distribution to be finished in whatever colour or finish is required. The process complements Gilberts’ powder-coating service, which enables products to be supplied in any solid colour, and ‘chrome’ powder to achieve a polished-chrome diffuser effect.

Sales director Ian Rogers explains, ‘The process gives a thorough, true 3-dimensional coating to the component. You could have gloss, matt, grilles that look like marble, wood, stone... There are even options that change colour with the temperature.’
