There is Nothing New Under the Sun . . .

 
Posted Mon, December 30, 2013

It was King Solomon that declared “There is Nothing New Under the Sun” and we agree that is true. However, even if the concept is not new, our goal is to provide the best available solution. And that is exactly what we do with our L-Bead Linear Bar Grilles for drywall and plaster applications. You may have already come to know Coco Architectural Grilles & Metalcraft as your preferred vendor – if not; here is another reason why you should.

The endeavor to supply our customers with the obvious choice for L-Bead Linear Bar Grilles began on jobsites. We frequently visit projects at all stages to assist with measuring and engineering custom installation solutions. On many of these trips we noticed our customers manually cutting down steel corner beads, drilling into the side of the bar grilles, and riveting the pieces together. This method was used to achieve a borderless installation that is flush with the face of the wall. A “must have” for many of our upscale residential projects.

SOME of the NEGATIVES with this OLD METHOD:

  • Increased field labor costs
  • Delay of grille installation
  • Visibility of unsightly rivets
  • Joining of dissimilar metals
  • Unnecessary rework of quality architectural grilles

It soon became clear that this was an opportunity to create another value added service for many of our existing customers. Additionally, we also opened the door to potential customers that utilized the “OLD METHOD” with low quality commercial grilles. It is now possible for them to use the “NEW METHOD” of a shop applied L-Bead Linear Bar Grille to ensure their projects include the best quality wall grilles and ceiling grilles available.

SOME of the POSITIVES with our NEW METHOD:

  • Grilles are ready to install on delivery (reduce field labor costs)
  • Fully welded Aluminum L-Bead for Maximum Durability (just like our grilles)
  • NO rivets, NO reworks, NO joining of dissimilar metals
  • Pre-punched holes for quick mounting
  • Core Grille can be Welded or Removable for access
  • Available with A-Frame, D-Frame (Band Frame) or as a CORE ONLY Grille!
  • Can be supplied as a Curved Grille or Mitered Corner Grille
  • Available in all Aluminum finishes
  • Achieve an elegant, flush finish

It is very satisfying to Serve our clients and provide them with The Best; but we are not finished yet! Our L-Bead design for Wall Grille and Ceiling Grille applications continues to evolve based on customer feedback. The input from the installers is what drives the improvements to our superior L-Bead Linear Bar Grille for Plaster (mud grille) installations.
