Architects happy to go with the FlowBar


Air Diffusion has launched a range of architecturally designed high capacity linear slot diffusers. Designed to combine a very high air handling capacity with maximum flexibility, FlowBar is suitable for either ceiling or sidewall applications.

The Burberry clothing store in Oxford Street (pictured) is an excellent example of how FlowBar can fit discreetly into a stylish interior providing both practical and aesthetic benefits.

The discrete and stylish look of these diffusers allows them to blend into a design so they can be almost invisible, if required, or can become part of the interior design by providing sleek lines in walls or ceilings. As a result, they have received a warm reception from architects and interior designers – both professions not renowned for their enthusiasm about ventilation equipment.

FlowBar is available in straight lines or curves to blend with other architectural elements and enhance the overall concept of the project while also ensuring the occupied internal space is adequately and efficiently ventilated.

Integral pattern controllers are 600mm in length allowing the airstream to be directed left and right for horizontal and vertical airflow. Standard slot sizes are 38mm and 51mm with single section lengths available up to 2400mm.

The standard finish on these products is anodised aluminium and there are a number of different models available including: The FlowBar High Throw (HT) Series, which is primarily designed for ceiling applications and allows the air diffuser to become inconspicuous, whilst fully integrating into the ceiling system. Surface mounted and plaster frame styles are available as standard with other frame and border options available on request.

The FlowBar Jet Throw (JT) series offers pattern flow controllers to allow the airstream to be jetted in a horizontal direction (sidewall mounted) whilst fully integrating into the wall system. Jet throw pattern controllers allow extended throws in typical high bay applications for heated and/or cooled air.

These are particularly useful along perimeter walls where heated air can be directed downward. Standard slot sizes are 38mm and 51mm with single section lengths available up to 2400mm.

Factory engineered plenum boxes can be provided with all models to ensure trouble free installation and ensure the performance levels outlined in the catalogue are met.
