DIY Home Projects - Why choose Classic Grills Resin for Air Vents, Grills or Registers?

What is the advantage of using Classic Grill's proprietary thermal resin for grills? 

Thermal resins that Classic Grills uses today were developed by NASA for use in the space industry.  These resins used by Classic Grills are a perfect fit for the architectural design industry. 

The durability and ability to create an array of designs and sizes in Classic Grill's resin sets Classic Grills apart from what is available on the market today. 

Classic Grills worked for many years to create a formulation that would be
  • Thermal. (both against high and low temperatures)
  • Rigid.  Being rigid is obviously critical to have in a final grill (air vent cover, register) which will not warp.
  • Moldable.  Classic Grills can form the material prior to full canalization to conform to a desired radius.
  • Paintable.  Paint adhesion to the grilles is truly important, especially with the temperature variation that grilles, air vents or registers are subjected to.
  • Nail-able.  Classic Grills in resin have similar characteristics to wood when it is pin-nailed or screwed.
  • Dimensionally Stable.  It is important that the resin does not expand nor contract with temperature variations experienced with a system as this can cause warping or a failure of adhesion to the resin surface.
  • Moisture Resistant.  Classic Grill's goal is to allow our customers to use Distinguished Design Grilles for both interior and exterior applications.

Grill Installation - Air Registers How to Install in your home

In so many grill installations you see these days, the grill or register is just screwed to the wall or ceiling and considered complete (not). For a professional looking installation and to really soften the look, here are a couple of simple tricks that you may find helpful. After removing the old grill, clean the inside of the ceiling or wall box with a damp cloth or household cleaner. Get yourself a rattle can of flat black spray paint. Spray the inside of the ceiling or floor box to darken the background. Don’t forget to mask around the box to prevent overspray. IF you are proficient with a spray can you can shield around the box with a piece of cardboard. To install the grill or register, screw the register to the ceiling or wall with the screws provided. Next is the important step that will set your installation apart from the others. Purchase a tube of painter’s latex caulking. Apply the caulking around the edge of the grill where the grill meets the wall. With a damp paper towel smooth out the seam until it blends smoothly. This process not only softens the look it also glues the grill to the wall or ceiling, hiding any unevenness in the ceiling or wall. This is the same process high end painter’s use on baseboards and door jambs. I hope you found this information useful. I promise it will really enhance the look of your installation. or  760-213-0427
