GILBERTS (BLACKPOOL) LTD - New Series HG Sport & Gymnasium Grille

Gilberts (Blackpool) Ltd - Gilberts HG Series provides a tough, uncompromising but safe grille solution for both air supply and extract applications in sports halls, gymnasiums and other similar areas.

In the past, for large sports hall grilles, Gilberts have typically offered a stainless steel grille solution. Stainless steel grilles are certainly strong but they are not easy to fabricate and are often less aesthetically pleasing. Gilberts have been working on a fresh new alternative instead, based on aluminium, yet still retaining the high strength required over large grille surface areas.

The new HG Series is the result, and comprises of substantial 10mm section rounded aerofoil vertical blades set close on a 16mm pitch to provide a strong central air distribution core. Framing the core is a large 50mm flange border frame with welded mitred corners to offer a strong and comfortable size landing for fixing to the structure. The flange border frame also includes smooth outer edges to reduce the risk of any collision type injury, whist the narrow blade pitch on the core eliminates the risk of finger trapping.

Sport England guidelines were widely consulted in the design and development of this grille to ensure that all best possible practices were applied.

The HG Series features vertical blades but can be installed with blades running horizontally where preferred and can be ceiling or sidewall mounted. The standard fixing method is screw through the flange using self tapping screws, which are supplied.

The HG Series has a standard size range all the way up to 10 metres x 2 metres and even larger sizes can be accommodated.

The standard finish on the HG Series is a White Polyester Powder with other special colours and finishes available upon request.

With costs nearly 25% less than previous steel sports grille variants, we think the new HG Series is a winner on all counts.

The new HG brochure is now available direct from Gilberts Head Office, via Area Representatives or downloadable at
