Note: Any of our decorative grilles can be used for filter grilles. To select the style for your decorative grille, use the same size as your replacement filters. If you do not see your filter grille size, call us at 410-867-0790.
Many new homes have return air filter grilles. These grilles must open to change the filters. Any of our Decorative Grilles can be used as a filter grille. We adapt our grilles by mounting them to a customized filter grille door set. We cut our grille to the exact size of a new filter grille door set, then remove the louvers from the door, and mount our grille with screws (from the back so you can’t see the screws) to the door. The hinge and lock from the door set are retained.
As for the filter we provide two pieces of black mesh which turns a white, pink or blue filter to a nice black background behind our grille. We provide two pieces of this black mesh so that you can use one and have a second to use when you change filters. The mesh will get dusty and needs to be cleaned with a sponge when you remove the old filter. This way you use one and have a clean one ready to go when you change filters.
Finally we also provide trim molding to go around the filter grille door assembly that is attached to the wall. The stationary part of the door set has a hard metal edge which needs to be covered by trim molding to complete the look. We paint the trim in the same finish as the grille.
