Ideally registers are located in areas unlikely to get stepped on. However, sometimes it is simply unavoidable and selecting the strongest design available in order to stand up to foot traffic is imperative. The eggcrate register is undoubtedly the best design in terms of strength. Concerning duct opening widths of fewer than 6 inches it doesn't matter whether you get a traditional louvered type of wood register or an eggcrate register. Above that dimension strength becomes increasingly important and eggcrate registers should be strongly considered if you have your heart set on wood registers.

If wanting wood registers and maximum airflow is important then the superior option is eggcrate style. Generally you are looking at about fifty seven percent open area in the faceplate design. That is considerably advantageous to the typical slotted wood designs who are closer to forty seven percent or so.
