Foundation Vent Cover – Arts and Crafts Style – Customer Images
Client images include before pictures which show the transformation from an unattractive industrial foundation vent cover to the handsome and functional foundation vent cover made by Beaux-Arts Classic Products.
This foundation vent cover is in our Arts and Crafts style in our Dark Bronze finish which looks terrific with the brick. Beaux-Arts products are made of the highest quality urethane resin without fillers which faithfully reproduces the rich detail of the ornamentation. Our resin is also strong, dimensionally rigid and heat resistant.
Our Arts and Crafts Style is a classic design which was originally made in New York State in approximately 1870-1914. They are the most outstanding grilles ever made in the USA. Andrew Carnegie placed them in most of the Carnegie Libraries from 1883 to 1929. We have been manufacturing these historical reproduction grilles in the USA since 2003. They can be used for historic preservation since they meet U.S. Government’s General Services Administration Code #1501003S Standards for Historic Preservation Guidelines.which is appropriate for historic preservation projects.
These foundation vent covers are maintenance free.
These decorative foundation vent covers are made exclusively for crawl spaces. They consist of two separate parts, the frame which is attached to the foundation and the grille which is removable. Both are cast from an exterior grade urethane resin that won’t rot, rust, corrode or grow mold. The grille can be removed by unscrewing four knurled knobs, in order to seal off the foundation in cold weather months by inserting a sealing plate behind the grille, or to put in a fiberglass screen mesh behind the grille in the warm weather months to allow ventilation in the crawl space. The homeowner can service these vents from the outside of the house without having to crawl into the crawl space. Each grille provides 73 square inches of ventilation with the fiberglass screen mesh installed. All installation hardware, plus the sealer plate and fiberglass screen mesh is included. The decorative foundation vent covers use historic masters which have been scanned and digitized to create a functional and attractive architectural feature replacing standard industrial foundation vent covers.
