We can also design boxes with non-standard heights where there is a limited space in the cavity. Please contact our technical staff at Head Office.
PERFORMANCE DATA FOR SINGLE AND DOUBLE DEFLECTION GRILLES
• To size a grille handling 0.5m3/s with a 10 metre throw at 025m2/s terminal velocity and sidewall
positioned 300mm from ceiling. Correct the throw for ceiling effect, i.e. 10÷1.33 = 7.5 metres. Enter the nomogram with 0.5m3/s volume and throw 7.5 metres.
Mark the point where the ruler crosses the pivot line. Read off NR(15) and Duct Velocity (1.5). The
appropriate pressure drop can be obtained from table 3 (2Pa). Design throws should always be corrected using tables 1,2,4 and 5 before using the nomogram.
• Table 3 shows the spread of air achieved by setting the blades at angles of 22° and 45° in relation to the throw from the grille.
Table 3 - Spread Characteristics
Table 3 should be used to determine the number of outlets required to give adequate coverage.
1. Establish the overall throw and spread required, i.e. length and width of the space to be conditioned.
2. Read from table 3 the spread obtained at the
required distance from the terminal. This will
determine the number of terminals required. Example: A room is 10.5 metres long and 6 metres wide. It is intended the air should be discharged from the short wall down the length of the room. At 10.5 metres and blades set at 22°, the spread
will be approximately 6 metres so one terminal will
provide adequate coverage.
3. However, the nomogram on page 5 is based on straight blades. Setting the blades at 22° or 45° will reduce the effective throw of the grille for any given airspeed through it. So it is necessary to apply a
correction factor to the design throw before using the nomogram in order to compensate for this reduction. Table 4 shows the correction factor which should be used as a multiplier to the design throw. The corrected throw can be used in the nomogram.
Table 4 - Correction to throw for Blade Angle and Ceiling Effect
Example: The throw required is 10.5 metres. The blades are to be set at 22°. The grille is more than 500mm from the ceiling. Multiply 10.5 by 1.5.
This gives a corrected throw of 15.75 metres which should be used in the nomogram.
4. The other factor to be considered in selecting grilles is the heating and cooling of the primary air. Cooled air will tend to fall and this, in particular, should be considered when selecting grilles and diffusers. The amount of drop in the airstream can be determined from Table 5.
