GDL products for luxury hotel in York

Grilles and diffusers by GDL Air Systems were chosen for a luxury hotel in York – the city’s only 5-star hotel.

Grand Hotel York

The Grand Hotel in York was built in 1906 housed in the iconic former headquarters of the North Eastern Railway Company. Today, a luxury spa is set in the building’s atmospheric vaults where the North Eastern Railway company once stowed its millions. It boasts 107 architecturally unique bedrooms including Penthouse Suite with stunning views of York.

In recent years, the Grand has become a multiple award-winning luxury hotel, including taking the ‘Hotel of the Year’ prize at the UK’s biggest tourism awards, the White Rose Awards, in 2012. It was also named Best Luxury Hotel in England in Late Rooms’ Simply the Guest awards and made Expedia’s 2013 Insiders’ Select List.

Working alongside M&E contractors Maximum Climate Control, GDL supplied Linear Bar Grilles, Linear Plenum Boxes and Circular Diffusers throughout the hotel and spa areas for both supply and extract ventilation. These were supplied in various paint colours in keeping with the opulence of the hotel interior.

Managing Director of Maximum Climate Control, Dave Tilbury, made this statement: “Maximum partners with GDL for all their grilles and diffusers on our projects due to their great range and high manufacturing standards, together with their cost and speed of both manufacture and supply, excellent service as ever.”

GDL products are manufactured in Britain, at factories in Glossop or Sheffield. The company offers clients both standard and bespoke products to suit their exact requirements with competitive lead times.
