MILESTONES IN OUR PAST
Over the past years, RCM Products has been the supplier of choice for many developers providing Grilles, Louvres, Diffusers and Vents for an extremely wide range of projects around the world.
As an insight into some of the milestones in our past, we offer a small collection of the better known locations that rely on our ventilation products.
North Sea Drilling Platform - Amerada Hess November 1993
The Grand Louvre Paris - March 1994
The Louvre was commissioned by King Phillipe-Auguste in 1190 and it was originally designed as a fortress to protect the French from Viking raiders (they were a real concern back then). It certainly served its purpose, and almost 500 years later the French were still around and the Louvre was reconstructed to become a royal palace by King François I. Each successive monarch after him made their own mark on the building by adding and extending the Louvre’s grounds and grandeur.

British Airways Concorde made just under 50,000 flights and flew more than 2.5m passengers supersonically. With a take off speed of 220 knots (250mph) and a cruising speed of 1350mph – more than twice the speed of sound - a typical London to New York crossing would take a little less than three and a half hours as opposed to about eight hours for a subsonic flight. In November 1986 a British Airways Concorde flew around the world, covering 28,238 miles in 29 hours, 59 minutes
