Automatic drop down grille helps ease maintenance

Mitsubishi Electric has introduced a new replacement grille for air conditioning units, which automatically lowers the grille on any ceiling up to 4 metres high. This means filters can be cleaned by non-skilled workers to reduce maintenance costs and improves health and safety by removing the need for ladders or towers,

According to the Health & Safety Executive over half a million working days were lost in 2014 due to falls from heights so finding ways to reduce risk is important for everyone.

The PLP-6BAJ grille is easy to fit as a replacement for any of Mitsubishi Electric’s PLA, or standard size PLFY models of 4 way blow cassettes.

The grille is available immediately and can be controlled from a PAR31 controller or the remote control that comes with the grille. It is straightforward to use and includes an automatic lowering function to simplify filter maintenance and help maintain energy efficiency.

Keeping the filters clean saves on energy use and reduces the stains and smudges on ceiling tiles caused when filters become dirty.

The company has prepared a short video to demonstrate how the system works.
