Gilberts (Blackpool) - Air Distribution & Natural Ventilation

Natural Ventilation - Air Distribution - Gilberts

Gilberts is one of the leading UK manufacturers of Air Distribution and Natural Ventilation Solutions. Serving the industry since 1960, we have progressively built a reputation for providing an extensive range of attractively styled and well-engineered products at competitive prices. With comprehensive internal and external technical sales support, we can provide high standards of customer service and can respond quickly and efficiently to the many and varied demands of the building services industry.

Product Range

Today we are a true multi product company with divisions specialising in:

  • Grilles & Diffusers
  • External & Architectural Louvres
  • Natural Ventilation Systems
  • Smoke & Fire Dampers


Employing nearly 300 personnel in our expansive 95,000 sq ft facility, we have a large and experienced labour resource upon which to draw. Our Engineering Division designs and manufactures all our own press tools and other special purpose machines, which is a vital resource that enables us to provide a rapid response to market and product changes, as well as satisfy any special customer designs or product requirements.

Combined with an array of the latest CNC punch presses and laser cutting technology, which are ideally suited to low cost production of specials and short production runs, we have a unique capability to experiment with prototypes and specials, both for new product development and for your specific project.

Air Movement Facility & CFD Airflow Modelling

Our Air Movement Test Facility was fully replaced and upgraded in 2015 and enables us to perform full air movement performance tests, both for our own research and for specific customer projects.

Designed to ISO 5219 specifications, we have superb versatility in room and plant arrangement which allows controlled air flow through numerous types of device in a multitude of mounting positions.

Experiments determine key data, including flow rates, pressures, velocities and temperatures, with the computer centre recording all tests, both visually and in data form.

Supporting this, we have the latest Computational Fluid Dynamics airflow modelling software which, using a 3D CAD base, allows our engineers to generate a computer graphical model of any area complete with air terminal or other devices. Models are populated with sub structures, fixtures and other heating/cooling loads, enabling the software to accurately map and predict the airflow and heat transfer in three dimensions. Using this software, complex project applications can often be proven without the need for full laboratory testing.

Natural Ventilation

Gilberts’ latest product innovation is in Natural ventilation. Mistrale expands on our vision to provide the best in modern, energy efficient air distribution solutions.

The Mistrale Natural Ventilation range is a complete, all new design portfolio incorporating patented design features which position it at the leading edge of modern natural ventilation design.
