Continental Industries released a new product series for T-bar or lay-in-ceiling applications. This line of plaque or shelf diffusers has been named the OPD Series for “omni-directional plaque diffuser.” The company claims that the OPD offers the high volume of air diffusion typical of more traditional step-down, cone models, such as the Continental HVS Series. The look of the OPD is meant to blend into surrounding ceiling panels. The plaque or shelf is constructed of heavy-gauge steel and features corner radii for both aesthetic and functional purposes. True 360-degree air diffusion is possible. Like other Continental T-bar diffusers, the OPD is offered with several fixed-collar options as well as the “A” or no-collar versions.
