eggcrate surface mount heat register

Equally suited for vintage homes and contemporary houses, this style of air vent is highly versatile. An eggcrate surface mount heat register will lend itself to clean design and old fashioned as well as modern simultaneously due to it's simple lines and clean look.. It is easy to picture these in craftsman, colonial, cabin, lodge, ranch, Victorian, ranch style, or contemporary structures.

It is best practice to locate a heat register in an area in which it is unlikely to get stepped on. However, sometimes it is simply unavoidable and you must select the strongest design available in order to stand up to foot traffic. The eggcrate style is by far the best design in terms of strength. Up to duct opening widths of about 6 inches it doesn't matter too much whether you get a traditional louvered type of wood register or an eggcrate style. But above that size strength becomes increasingly imporant and eggcrate heat registers should be strongly considered if you have your heart set on wood.

In the event you want wood registers and maximum airflow is desired then your best best is the eggcrate style. In general you are looking at about 57% open area in the faceplate design. That is considerably better than the typical slotted wood designs who come in closer to 47% or so.

Standard woods include red oak and paint grade maple. And we have a wide variety of other woods to choose from ranging from common woods like white oak all the way to exotic choices such as antique heart pine. Some of the more popular wood choices include hickory, red birch, stain grade maple, alder, poplar (often used when they will be painted), southern yellow pine, and white pine.

They may run a little more than a typical wood unit, but there is simply a lot to recommend for this style of register, from sturdiness to styling that won't go out of date. Furthermore, we are able to make eggcrate surface mount grilles in a myriad of sizes from standard dimensions to non-standard fractional sizes. Typical overall thickness is three quarters of an inch, although if you have other requirements we are happy to discuss them with you.
