Waterloo Air Products plc has expanded its grille range, targeting the residential market with the launch of Plasterline Linear and ‘Urban’ Grille ranges.
The Plasterline Grille offers a solution for the prime and super prime residential markets where architects are increasingly expecting discreet design-led, air distribution solutions that give optimal performance.
Rick Edmondson, Chairman of Waterloo, said; “Architectural possibilities are being created to meet higher expectations. Occupants of prime residential properties are enjoying a lifestyle where design combined with functionality characterises their environment.”
There are four models in the range, each produced to be integrated into a building’s design. Once fitted within a wall or ceiling, the Plasterline Grille provides a subtle but structured appearance without compromising air flow.
It can be used in modular or continuous situations with ceiling, sidewall, cill or bulkhead applications - many optional finishes are available on request in a variety of configurations and colours.
Waterloo claim the addition of the Plasterline Grille to provides one of the widest ranges of air distribution solutions in the industry.
Waterloo’s ‘industrial edge’ grilles are designed to meet the requirements for air distribution in minimalist building design that calls for exposed ductwork.
Mr Edmondson said: “Industrial styling by architects that features ductwork opens up new possibilities in air distribution.”
“An environment that suggests aspects of our industrial heritage can function efficiently by incorporating disguised features that is at the forefront of technology. The Urban Grille exemplifies Waterloo’s understanding of airflows and our manufacturing expertise helps architects to deliver their vision, creating buildings that are functional but stimulating and aesthetically pleasing.”
The Urban Grille is manufactured from 1.6mm galvanised steel, and has been designed specifically for projects where exposed ductwork is a feature of a building’s design.
Three models are available, Urban Curve (UC), Urban Flat (UF) and Urban End (UE). A range of options includes removable cores, adjustable horizontal or vertical blades and blade pitches depending on the application and model required.
