Diamonds in the Rough.
Tiffany & Co’s Retail Spaces Sparkle –
Partly Due to the Dampers Within their Walls.
Tiffany & Co is synonymous with excellence in fine jewelry. They are among the most well respected jewelers around the world. From the quality of their jewelry to their famous blue boxes and gorgeous retail spaces, design has been the hallmark of Tiffany’s for over 100 years. However, the diamonds you don’t see when you visit a Tiffany store are buried deep within the walls and ceilings. Those diamonds are actually Metropolitan Air Technology’s remotely operated balancing dampers. The damper design delivers on architectural demands that require the elimination of unsightly duct access panels. MAT’s dampers allow for remote access for airflow balancing. Adjustments to airflow are made at remote termination points that are nearly invisible. This ensures the preservation of finished ceilings, like those in Tiffany’s retail spaces.
“The engineers at Tiffany’s chose to modify their plans in order to incorporate the use of MAT dampers in their retail spaces. “A premium brand such as Tiffany’s will not compromise. From the quality of their jewelry, to their exquisite retail spaces, everything is meticulously managed,” noted Mike Blaha, M.A.T. General Manager. “Our remotely operated balancing dampers enabled their showroom designers to create spaces that were not disrupted by exposed ducting or damper access panels.”
Tiffany worldwide locations that have utilized MAT’s remotely operated balancing dampers include:
- United States
- Hong Kong
