What Are Ceiling Diffusers?

The term ‘ceiling diffuser’ normally refers to louvre faced ceiling diffusers – the louvre ventilation terminals seen in the ceilings of commercial spaces all over the world.

Louvre faced ceiling diffusers have been popular for decades. Their architectural appearance belies a high performance diffuser with a multitude of configurations and options, including multiple blow directions, rear mounted volume control dampers and removable cores. These options assist both initial installation and ongoing maintenance. Intended for supply applications, these diffusers can also be used in a return (extract) function when a consistent appearance throughout an installation is required.

Installing Ceiling Diffusers

Louvre faced ceiling diffusers can be installed in various methods:

  • Laying into drop in ceiling tile systems (normally 600mm x 600mm or 500mm x 500mm).

  • Pre-punched fixing holes for screw fixing into plasterboard ceilings. 

  • Burgess tile system installation through use of dedicated Burgess compatible frame. 

  • Integration into other proprietary ceiling tile systems, e.g. Armstrong. 

Installed properly, a ceiling diffuser will provide more than adequate infusion of fresh air into a given space, providing adequate ventilation and temperature control.
