AHU Systems – Researched, Designed, Developed


We invest heavily in R&D as we believe that all ideas need research, design and development.

Our highly skilled and qualified engineers are dedicated to AHU design and are motivated to consistently improve Barkell machines. Our engineers are drawn from a range of disciplines including electrical and mechanical engineering, fluid dynamics, design, testing, acoustic, controls and other disciplines. By encompassing a range of disciplines and aftersales services, we ensure your AHU unit runs and can be maintained as required – to its complete optimum.

Throughout our organisation and as part of the Airedale Group we pride ourselves on empowering our AHU design engineers to create positive change. Our R&D ethos encourages and empowers designers to come up with innovative ideas that minimise operational costs, maximise performance and have environmental responsibility at their heart. This allows us to create a positive change in the applications where our systems are installed.
