July's Product of the Month: Resin Registers and Return Grills

Classic Grills Resin ReturnsIn December 2012 we featured Classic Grills as our manufacturer of the month and recently they have branched out to include these beautiful resin grills in their line-up. Distinguished Design Grills was created to manufacture grills and registers in a lightweight material, that are three dimensional with beautiful designs.

An Intro to Resin Grills 


The decorative grills are made out of a lightweight yet durable resin. The resin used in these grills was originally developed by NASA. The strength and versatility of the material allows these decorative grills to do things other grills can’t. Furthermore, they are made with low VOC’s, non-flammable, are great for painting, and simulate wood when drilling and nailing. See the chart below to further compare the resin to other materials.

Ordering a Decorative Grill

If you are interested in ordering a grill, you will choose your design, color, border type, if you want screw holes, and finally size. Be sure to measure the actual hole in your ceiling or wall. These grills will measure approximately 3" larger overall than the listed size, but can vary as the grills are hand cast. These decorative grills are only made to be used on the walls or ceilings. Resin Grill Dampers are also to be ordered by the size of the hole in your wall.
