How Do I Order?
Let's start with your Duct Opening Size!
Let's start with the Duct Opening Size. This measurement tells us the size to nest into your duct opening for specific fits, as well as the air flow size.
All sizes are ordered by the DUCT OPENING OR CUT OUT SIZE! Your Overall size will change depending on your chosen fit.
Ex. 14" wide x 8" high
If you don't see your size listed above, please visit our Quote Center.
What's my Overall size?
Your Overall size is determined mostly by your vent fit. For the Laser Designs we have 3 Fit Options.
- Surface Mount: This will have a 1/2" solid border on all 4 sides. This means a 10 x 4" duct opening size, will have an Overall size of 11 x 5". If you need Screw Holes added we will need a minimum of 7/8" border. This means if you have a 10 x 4" duct opening size, with added screw holes the Overall size will be 11.75 x 5.75", unless you notate otherwise for a specified Overall size.
- Self-Rimming: This will have a 7/8" lip or flange on each of the 4 sides. This means a 10 x 4" duct opening size, will have an Overall size of 11.75 x 5.75".
- Surface/Flush Mount: This will have a 1/2" solid border on each of the 4 sides. This means a 10 x 4" duct opening size will have an Overall size of 11" wide x 5" high x 0.25" (thickness). If you need us to build the area up to be flush as a 3/4" thickness, etc. for a baseboard or other location, please notate that in your quote request.
What is my Wood Type?
If you are staining your wood, for Laser designs we have ONLY Oak, Maple, American Cherry, Birch or Walnut to choose. If you are painting your vent Maple or Birch are the two wood choices. Due to these being in 1/4" thick sheets for our Laser Machine to cut through, we do not carry all species of wood.
What Stain Color do I need?
All vents are shipped UNFINISHED, unless you request a stain or painting service. This is done so each customer can perfectlhy match to their space.
We use any of the Minwax Oil Based Stains. These colors can also be found at your local hardware stores. If you like, you can also mail a small sample of the wood you are matching for us to use as a stain match.
What is a Damper?
Dampers will have blades that open and close on the BACK of your vent, for you to control the air flow by opening or closing. For solid wood vents many of our professional customers choose not to use dampers.This is an optional add-on for your supply vent of select sizes only. DAMPERS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SUPPLY VENTS OF SPECIFIC SIZES, THAT ARE REQUESTED IN THE SELF-RIMMING FIT. The framework of the Self-Rimming helps support the damper weight.
What options are available for Air Returns with Filters?
If you have a filter behind the grille of your vent, you can tell us the size of your 1 or 2" air filter size (ex. 20 x 20 x 1"). We can add filter brackets to the back of your wood grille to hold your filter in place.
For ease of use, you can add the Filter Assembly Package which allows your vent to open more like a door to access your filter for changes. Here we will add a Frame, Hinge, & Clasp to your vent.
We will use a plastic clasp so your wood is not scratched as you move it each month for filter changes. If you prefer the hinges to be on a certain side, please specifiy which side (width or height) you would like them placed. Typically we put the hinges are installed on the bottom width side.
Still Unsure of Anything?
If you are unsure of anything, rest assured we have an added Notes and 2 Optional Photo Upload sections at the end of your quote request. This allows you to communicate things regarding your fit, location, etc. One of our representatives will review your notes, and address them in your quote if needed.
