EasyCollar, DeflectAir Enhance Appearance of Ductless & VRF/VRV Ceiling Cassettes

Marketair Inc. introduces the EasyCollar universal collar and the DeflectAir deflector that aesthetically enhance all brands of ductless and VRF/VRV ceiling cassettes in retail, restaurants, offices, hotels, supermarkets and other commercial new construction and retrofit applications.

The EasyCollar is a universal one-piece collar, molded from glass fiber reinforced plastic. Designed to present a professional finish by masking the unsightly appearance of cassettes, which are installed into and protrude from shallow ceiling spaces, EasyCollar comes in three sizes, each of which are available in depths of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches (50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 mm).

The universal version, which fits most cassettes on the market today, is available in 3 models: U1 is 29.3 inches square (745 mm); U2 is 39.4 inches square (1,000 mm) and the U3 is 47.3 inches square (1,200 mm). All models are self-supporting, require no attachment hardware and can be installed or retrofitted in less than 10 minutes.

The two DeflectAir models deflect air in four directions to eliminate hot or cold drafts and improve occupant comfort. They mount underneath the cassette without compromising airflow or access for filter replacement.

The DF1C is 27.6 incesh square (700 mm) with a 12.2 by 11-inch (310 by 280-mm) center hole; the DF2AS is 36.4 inches square (925 mm) with a 17.7 by 20.5-inch (450 by 520-mm) center hole. Both models are 2.1 inches deep (55 mm) and include the necessary attachment hardware which enables them to be installed or retrofitted in less than 15 minutes.

Both the EasyCollar and DeflectAir are molded from Class II fire-resistant resin in a standard matte finish. The standard color is almond; they are also available on special order in white or any custom color upon request.

Other EasyCollar and DeflectAir features include:

  • One-year warranty
  • Product life generally surpasses the cassette’s lifecycle
  • Collars can easily be cut with hand tools to accommodate sloped ceilings or other site-specific modifications
  • The 48-inch-square EasyCollar model (U3) replaces two 24-inch by 48-inch tiles in a T-bar ceiling grid, facilitating cassette placement

EasyCollar and DeflectAir are manufactured by J.A.C. Supplies based in Foston, Derbyshire, U.K., and are exclusively imported and distributed by Marketair. They are available at many North American HVAC/R wholesale distributors or from Marketair direct.
