Floor Air Returns & Vents
Floor Grates, Air Return or Supply Vents
in sizes not shown on the other pages:
When it comes to floor grates, air returns or supply registers and vents, you not only want a model which fits the style and wood of your home or office, but also that is designed to withstand floor traffic. After all, if you invest in beautiful wood floors, it’s a shame to interrupt the flooring with old metal vents or poorly constructed wood ones, isn’t it? If it is on the floor, sooner or later you are going to have that Christmas Party you never invite me to attend and someone is going to step on that vent (even if under the stair landing).
At American Wood Vents we are committed to crafting fine vents and grates in a wide variety of woods and styles to complement vertually any home or office.
That is why, even with the standard size registers, we make wood vents from multiple parts of wood so that the grain goes the length of the piece and not perpendicular to that part. Each part is locked to a rail or stile so that it set at a 90 degree angle for maximum strength. Since we are the nationwide manufacturer we can make wood vents in different ways in order to increase Strength, improve appearance, change air “Throw” or to increase air flow.
We have made some pretty large load bearing sizes. Depending upon the wood and size of your opening we can suggest different ways we can make sure that your wood vent is designed properly to fit your particular situation.
If you have a large air return or opening size in the floor you may want to consider the 5/4 Oak, Ash, Maple or White Oak Grates. This is the Strongest, Safest, most Substantial floor grate available for residential air returns. We have stronger options also available as well depending upon your situation. We are happy to discuss this with you most any time.
When measuring for floor vents, be sure to note dimensions for the length and width of your opening cutouts. If your flooring is already installed you will typically have an irregular cutout size so just take the minimum length and width measurement. For example, if one side is 29.5 and the other size is 30″ just go with the 29.5″ as you size.
If your flooring is not yet installed you will most likely want to go with a Flush Mount version. We can make flush mounts for most any floor thickness, including engineered or laminate flooring, even ceramic tile flooring.
If your floor vent is going into carpets, just let us know and we can walk you through with some questions to understand better your situation.
If you need a large or long one just let us know.
Just give us a call, email or fax and we will get you back a quote quickly. If you want a quote or to order now, just use our check out form for custom sizes. We will probably have some questions for you before we send out your Grate or Louvered Floor Vent, just so we can better understand your situation, to be able to advise you.
If you want a small one you may like a smaller grid size. In this picture of a 4 x 12″ size you can see we can get plenty of air flow, it is strong for floor traffic and it looks great with 4 squares by 13 squares.

Please note: We always suggest that for floor vents, when you receive your wood vents that you put them into place and test them out. It is easy enough to add additional supports as necessary in order that they are safe in your particular situation. Just give us a call, email or fax if you have any concerns or challenges.
