Capabilities : Employing nearly 300 personnel across two UK plants we have a large and experienced labour resource upon which to draw. Our Engineering division designs and manufactures all of our own press tools and other special purpose machines which is a vital resource that enables us to provide a rapid response to market/product changes as well as satisfy any special customer designs and product requirements. Combined with a formidable array of the latest CNC punch presses, 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 specific projects.
Air Movement Facility & CFD Airflow Modeling
Our Air Movement Test Facility which enables us to perform full air movement performance and research 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 modeling 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. The models are populated with sub structures, fixtures and other heating/cooling loads which enables 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 laboratory testing. Natural Ventilation: Gilberts latest product innovation ‘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 that incorporates patented design features which position it at the leading edge of modern natural ventilation design. Suitable for both stack effect and wind driven systems Mistrale comprises of all of the key elements and components you will need to design a robust, efficient and extremely effective natural ventilation system.
