When designing your home or office, it’s important to pay attention to the details. Something as simple as a metal grille can be the difference between a polished interior design and a messy, haphazard one. But what is a metal grille and why does it matter? A metal grille is a permanent fixture that can function as either an air supply or return vent. They’re typically found in ceilings or walls but can be installed in the floor if necessary. It’s common to see multiple grilles installed throughout office spaces, as opposed to one large installation – which is why it’s crucial that you have a seamless and professional design for the grilles.
Coco Architectural has been in the metal crafting industry for more than a century. We have tried and true experience to create the right metal grille for your space. Our team of metalwork professionals pairs time-proven techniques with top-of-the-line technology to create almost any product a customer could need.
Don’t let your interior design seem low-quality by using generic metal air grilles. Custom grilles will elevate your space’s aesthetic and relieve the stress of self-installation. Don’t believe us? Here are our top reasons why a custom air grille is worth the plunge.
Selecting an air grille seems like an easy decision, but many people don’t realize the amount of planning that goes into the selection process. First of all, have you properly measured the installation space? Do you need a flangeless (flush-mounted) or flanged linear bar grille? Will your project require access doors, welded support bars, concealed fastening or other installation hardware? If so, does the general store have these pieces in matching materials? This is just the start of the questions you’ll need to ask before selecting a metal grille for your space.
Luckily, ordering a custom grille can alleviate most of these concerns. It can be frustrating to go back and forth to the store to get a new size or find new, matching hardware. Instead of dealing with that hassle, our team can take your order, making sure to help answer all the necessary questions to get the perfect finished product – like our popular L-bead linear bar grilles.
The Coco Architectural L-bead linear bar grille is created with a custom method to ensure the best quality wall and ceiling grilles available. This includes:
Grilles that are ready to install on delivery
No reworks, rivets, or joining of dissimilar metals
Ability to choose between a welded or removable core grille
Fully-welded aluminum L-bead for maximum durability
Pre-punched mounting holes
Curved or mitered corner grille options
Ability to choose an A-frame, band frame or core-only grille
Flush plaster or drywall finish
Our patent-pending L-Bead installation option creates a flush finish for plaster or drywall installations of linear or perforated grilles. Also known as “mud-in,” this option provides the highest level of plaster recess and a removable grille core while preventing plaster cracking. Essentially, the finished product looks like it is part of the wall, as opposed to grille installations with metal fasteners that sit on top of the wall’s surface.
Ability to easily create matching metal products
Why limit yourself to just metal air grilles? Our all-inclusive metal fabrication facility provides our team with the capability to create an almost unlimited scope of products – even if it’s outside of our specialties of custom laser and waterjet cutting services, stainless steel fabrication and custom metal corner guards. We have created a wide variety of products, including desks, consoles, wall panels, handles and pulls, ornamental trim, railings, cladding, louvers, precision sheet metal, signage, tree grates, column covers, retail displays, trench boxes, headers and jams, convector enclosures and more.
Instead of worrying if your generic metal grille will match the other metal hardware in your space, let our team create custom, coordinating products. We work with a variety of metals, including aluminum, brass, bronze, stainless steel and steel. In addition, we can create a beautiful finish on your product with options that include satin/brushed, mirror polished, anodized, duranodic, blackened, baked enamel colors, statuary/antiqued and oil rubbed.
