SEEMINGLY SIMPLE. SIMPLY SEAMLESS.
Artistry in Architectural Grilles a/k/a AAG Advanced Architectural Grilleworks, the innovator of the Plaster J-BeadTM frame for linear bar grilles has developed a similar product for perforated metal grilles that will improve installation speed and accuracy while providing a strong and seamless finished result.
“HVAC Industry standards were not satisfying our customers’ requirements so we undertook extensive testing and development with some of our key HVAC clients and engineers. The resulting solution is a J-Bead frame for perforated grilles with numerous unique features including multiple core mounting options.”
THE PERFORATED GRILLE WITH J-BEAD FRAME
FULLY WELDED – A SOLID, ONE PIECE UNIT
There are no unsightly rivets, welds or seams that can crack or pull-apart as is the current industry standard. The flange provides multiple recessed capture areas for plaster or “mud” and there is a step enabling the finishers to smoothly and cleanly apply an initial coat and a final skim coat. Additionally, there are numerous pre-punched holes designed to accept standard wall board screws with spacing to accommodate any wall condition.
The perforated grille J-Bead style frame can be provided in any shape or configuration (fixed or removable; with or without a door) and will accommodate either filter slots or opposed blade dampers.
The frame is available in aluminum with a full range of finishes: satin #4, satin – clear anodized, mirror polish #8, prime painted, or powder coated.
