Our Vision

Our vision is to support the delivery of a UK built environment where air quality is recognised as imperative to productive and healthy working and living.

At Barkell we believe that clean, temperature-optimised air supply is the key to healthy, productive living and working environments. We are passionate about what we do and in a world where often the focus is on getting the job done as quickly as possible, we prefer building long-term relationships and working with our customers to design, build, install and maintain the best possible solution for their project.

Formed in 1981, Barkell specialises in bespoke air handling units supported by intelligent controls and a comprehensive design service and aftersales suite including maintenance, spares and upgrades.

We have deep end-user application expertise and tailor our approach to the specific project goals, whilst offering support on air movement best practise based on nearly 40 years of experience. We firmly believe that our industry must play its part in reducing the effects of climate change and therefore energy efficiency is a key driver in our product and system design.
