GDL Air Systems brings fresh air to fashion chain distribution centre

GDL Air Systems is temporarily closed and unable to make deliveries, but is currently planning to restart manufacture and despatch on May 4th and looks forward to being able to help on more projects such as this one to provide a natural ventilation solution for retailer Urban Outfitters:

Roof of distribution centre

Urban Outfitters occupies plot 112 at Gateway Peterborough, a new-build 180-acre distribution and manufacturing site with planning consent for 4 million sq ft of industrial and distribution buildings including individual buildings up to 800,000 sq ft. Located at junction 17 of the A1(M) in Peterborough, the site is strategically placed as a North-South link between London and Edinburgh.

Working alongside client Salamanda, GDL was appointed to manufacture and install a natural ventilation solution suitable to ventilate the plot chosen by Urban Outfitters for use as one of its retail distribution centres. GDL’s projects sales team worked closely with the client to find the best natural ventilation solution for this plot and selected high-performance Weather Louvres in conjunction with Low Leakage Dampers. Roof mounted automatic opening vent units were also selected to help extract the warm stale air.

Natural ventilation is a sustainable and cost-effective ventilation method and is particularly effective in open spaces with mixed occupancy levels such as warehouses, gymnasiums, lecture theatres, supermarkets and school classrooms.

GDL Products offers a full turnkey package including design, manufacture, supply and install working closely with a dedicated technical sales team member. Its Intelivent Wall Units allow a controlled environment by allowing natural fresh air to enter the building via external weather louvres.
