Linear Bar Grille Frame Styles

Pin It Houzz

Whether you are looking for a classic style like the B Frame, the "clean line" aesthetics of a J Frame or more of a decorative style such as one of our Beveled Frames, Architectural Grille offers a variety of advanced premium quality Linear Bar Grille frame styles to complement your project design.

Standard Frame Styles:

  • A Frame: The 1/8” band around the core delivers a minimalist profile, this frame style also has a 1/2” return on the bottom for support and allows for the core to be loose (removable) or fixed to the frame depending on accessibility needs.
  • B Frame: With a  3/4” flange offering a classic style, the B Frame gives a bolder look to any core while 'covering' any rough or uneven cuts made for the air vent opening. Please note that the B Frame is fixed to the core.
  • C Frame: The best of both the A and B Frames, the C Frame has a 3/4” flange for a bolder look and a 1/2” return on the bottom for added support. It can be removable (loose) or fixed to the core and is recommended for floor applications.

Beveled Frame Styles:

  • D, E, F Frames: Featuring a flange like the B frame, to cover any rough or uneven air vent openings, each style offers varied flange sizes with a beveled edge for a more decorative look.

Specialty Frame Styles:

  • G Frame: When added stability isn’t required (it does not have a return), this frame style offers the same 1/8” bar around the perimeter of the core as the A Frame, it is also only available with a fixed core.
  • J Frame: With an easy "clean line" installation method, this "less is more" frame style is ideal for drywall or plaster applications. The 1/2” return at the bottom allows for the core to be loose (removable) or fixed to the frame.

Frame styles and cores are available in a range of stock sizes, materials and finishes, and can also be customized to your needs and project standards. Request a quote.
