Colman High Capacity Flow Bar Diffusers at EBRD Canary Wharf

Colman have completed delivery of our largest project to date - The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The 12 level upper floor development in Canary Wharf will be one of the most environmentally efficient and sustainable buildings in the UK.

'This has been a highly prestigious project to be involved in and we are delighted that Colman were chosen to provide the grilles and diffusers, much of which were multi slot linears and our Hi Flow single slot diffuser', explains Colman Technical Sales Manager Ian Brown.

The project was delivered on a floor by floor basis with each supply diffuser being provided with an acoustically lined plenum box complete with perforated equalising grids to achieve the maximum even air distribution.


The Whiteley

Colman High Capacity Slot Diffusers at The Whiteley Bayswater London

Colman have capped another record breaking year by securing the grille and diffuser package at the The Whiteley refurbishment in Bayswater, London.

The iconic former department store will transform into 139 luxury apartments which will be ventilated by Colman's high capacity flow bar diffusers.

Technical sales manager Ian Brown commented 'We are looking forward to supplying our plaster in high flow diffusers to this project throughout 2022. The glidebar design is a unique innovation for this type of product and easy adjustment allows for maximum comfort to be achieved. The plaster in element means that only the air gap is visible, giving the ultimate inconspicuous terminal device'.

Colman Covers All Slots

November 2020

Slot diffusers provide an unobtrusive solution to air distribution

Slot diffusers provide an unobtrusive solution to air distribution and with architects wanting air terminal devices to blend seamlessly into the surroundings, Colman have all possibilities covered.

From the conventional flanged slot diffusers for perimeter plasterboard applications to ‘plank’ tile replacement and frameless high capacity where only the air gap is visible, Colman have a wide range of solutions available.

Mitred corner sections, blanking plates and light baffles are all available to compliment each type.


All Systems Go For Painting

January 2020

Colman continue their progression into the new decade with the opening of our paint plant, just yards away from our High Carr head office.

The unit is testament to the hard work of Colman Production Manager Andy Randles and now enables Colman to paint their own grilles and diffusers, thus shortening lead times and allowing us to hold larger stocks of standard products.

In the picture above we see tile replacement slot diffusers about to go through the treatment process.


Colman Step Up To The Marque

October 2019

Europe’s largest Mercedes showroom has now opened in Stockport and Colman were privileged to supply the grilles, diffusers and louvres for the project.

The state of the art building will benefit from conditioned air from Colman’s CE slot and DRS fixed blade swirl diffusers in the showroom and customer waiting areas, with the P Series range of Perforated Diffusers being utilised for general extract and in the WC and staff areas.

Colman Technical Sales Manager Ian Brown elaborates ‘This is a really prestigious project for us to be involved in and we were delighted to work closely with Imtech to deliver this project on time for LSH Autos.’


Colman Complete
Royal Albert Dock


Colman have now fully supplied grilles and diffusers to the first phase of the Royal Albert Dock development in East London.

Advanced Business Park Investments are creating a huge business district covering the area of 35 football pitches with the first phase of 21 office blocks and a temporary energy centre now being supplied with air distribution by Colman’s adjustable swirl and slot diffusers.

Working closely with Mercury Engineering, this has been the largest project that Colman have undertaken since the new business was formed in 2015.


Cornerblock Crowned Double Winner


The first major project that the ‘new’ Colman has supplied grilles and diffusers to, has scooped two awards at the BCO Midlands and Central Property Awards.

Cornerblock, formerly known as 2 Cornwall Street, was named best commercial workplace in addition to one of the building’s tenants winning the award for best commercial workspace up to 1500 square metres.

Colman Technical Sales Manager Ian Brown says, ‘We are delighted to see the transformation of this building recognised with these awards – the project, featuring thousands of Colman’s DWS fixed blade swirl diffusers, was our first large order and set the tone for our ethos of supplying quality products manufactured in the UK’.
