Hi Gary, it's been a few years since we met. I think I was the one of the first to cross your door over three years ago as the day we met you where only moving in to your new offices and couldn't find anything to show us.

Welcome aboard I am sure one of the mods will be along to explain the rules around advertising your own goods on the forum.

Welcome Gary,

 

Looking forward to the benefit of your advice and experience.  All I can say is that if you are as helpful here as you were when I was a potential customer (providing me with a layout plan and air flow calculations before I had even committed to buying), it will be great for everyone.

Hi Gary. 

I think the feedback so far has spoken for itself, so good to have you on board as a contributor. 

If your at all unsure of the "do's and dont's" please feel free to PM one of the staff, but were certainly the better for new, genuine members ;)  

Prepare to have your brain picked :)  

Nick.

Hi Gary and welcome, I will be self installing next year and have a question, on another forum a chap did his self install and was of the opinion that flow control at the plenum was better than at the room terminal because of possible air noise at the terminal? Can you comment please.

Hi Joe. 

There are 3 ways you can adjust the flow on a radial duct system,

manifold- a ring is inserted at the manifold and restricts the air by closing over the hole, we do not really like this as over time the ring is an obstacle that can gather dirt restricting even more air and requires you to service the manifold

Plenum - the plenum has a damper inside to adjust airflow allowing for any type of grille and is popular if fitting architectural types of ceiling valves

Air valve - 90% of all systems adjust at the air valve as this allows for easy adjustment and noise is normally only a issue if using poor quality air valves

Hi Gary

What is an 'architectural type of ceiling valve'?

 

(btw - we've just ordered our ducting etc from you :) )
