In collaboration with engineering consultancy Harley Haddow and contractor Quinn Heritage, MAPUK played a pivotal role in the second and final phase of the V&A’s Photography Centre. Tasked with optimising air flow in three new photography galleries, we provided expert advice and supplied MB28Sb micro blade grilles with plaster-in subframes.

The versatility of the MB28Sb grilles allowed them to seamlessly integrate into the gallery spaces, providing both fresh air and exhaust air applications. With their fine micro blade thickness and blade pitch, these grilles deliver optimal thermal and acoustic comfort, ideal for the delicate ambiance of a gallery setting. To complement the interior design, the grilles were painted in a classic Anthracite Grey hue, ensuring a harmonious blend with the decor.

These high profile projects are a testament to the collaborative efforts of all involved teams. At MAPUK, our technical team consistently delivers tailored solutions that meet the unique requirements of each project.
