Gilberts throws light on exposed ceiling design

New light is being shed on exposed ceiling design- literally- through innovations by leading air movement specialist Gilberts Blackpool.

The company is already one if the leaders in solutions enabling designers to optimise the trend towards open ceilings and exposed building services in commercial interiors. Now it has pioneered an acrylic version of its coanda plate, inset with LED lighting, for use with its range of GS swirl diffusers.

Specifies can choose either a single colour for the LEDs, or an option whereby the colour changes through a preset range.

“In exposed ceiling ductwork, the coanda plate is key to ensure efficient horizontal dispersal of fresh, incoming air, without ‘dumping’. As the exposed ductwork is an architectural feature, we decided to give designers optimum opportunity to add a new dimension to their plans,” explains Gilberts Sales Director Ian Rogers.

The backlit coanda can be specified with Gilberts’ range of GSF and GSJ swirl diffusers for exposed ceilings. Both versions feature a patented design of radial vanes to optimise omni directional discharge airflow with natural or mechanical air distribution strategies.

Gilberts ( is the UK’s leading independent air movement specialist, now acknowledged as the ‘go to’ organisation for  ventilation expertise. It designs and manufactures standard and bespoke solutions  in-house, which can then be appropriately ratified via CFD modelling and practical testing, again through its in-house resources, at its 90000ft2 manufacturing facility and head office.
