ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE has added three new linear bar grille frame styles specifically designed for the construction industry to its variety of custom heating and ventilation linear bar grilles for floor, wall, and ceiling HVAC applications. The additions include two new spackle-in frame styles + a floor mounted option, following on the popularity of ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE’s original Spackle In J-Frame to complete the Construction Grille Collection.
In addition to the wide selection of standard, beveled, and specialty core and frame style options, ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE can also custom fabricate curved grilles (convex, concave, and flat face) in several core and frame style options. Materials include aluminum, brass, bronze, and stainless steel, and grilles are available in a number of finishes. Options such as beveled edges, mitered corners, and access doors give clients more flexibility when choosing the perfect grille for the job.
History of the Spackle In J-Frame Bar Grille
Thirty years ago, ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE started receiving client requests for an easy, “clean line” installation method for wall and ceiling HVAC applications. To satisfy this growing need, the company’s engineers researched and developed the original Spackle In J-Frame Bar Grille. The Spackle In J-Frame Bar Grille allows for easy installation using common drywall screws and spackle to achieve a sleek aesthetic finish with no visible mounting screws. Minimalist design at its best, this grille offers a sleek finish for projects that require a "less is more" approach to HVAC grilles.
Now, ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE is proud to offer three more low-profile grilles that are specifically designed to be installed during the construction phase and are perfect for modern and high-end spaces.
New Frame Styles Provide Even More Flexibility
ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE’s three new construction linear bar grille frame styles are:
Like the Spackle In J-Frame Bar Grille, all construction frames are green bar grilles, meaning they are made from 94% post-consumer recycled aluminum. Not only are they an eco-friendly option, but choosing responsibly manufactured grilles helps obtain LEED™ credits for commercial and residential projects.
“Some projects call for grille frames that are more understated than your classic linear bar grille,” says Stephen J. Giumenta, ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE Co-Owner & Design Engineer. “That need, along with giving the building industry more HVAC options during the construction phase, is something we have long understood, as our design and engineering teams work closely with builders and HVAC installers to manufacture custom metalwork all the time. Now, we’re bringing frame options that were previously available solely on a custom basis to a much broader audience, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
