Beaux-Arts Classic Productswas started with the vision of offering classically designed solutions to everyday eyesores. Those modern intrusions such as vent covers for heating and air conditioning found in all our homes.
This standard industrial vent cover was in the foyer of the home we built. We replaced it with the most outstanding return air grille ever made in the USA. The design was originally made in New York State in approximately 1870-1914. Andrew Carnegie placed them in most of the Carnegie Libraries from 1883 to 1929. Today we are manufacturing these historical reproduction supply vent covers using the highest quality urethane resin which is strong, dimensionally stable and heat resistant. Resin will not rust, rot or corrode and will not vibrate like the louvered vent covers.
Resin captures the exact details of the originals.
They can be used for historic preservation since they meet U.S. Government’s General Services Administration Code #1501003S Standards for Historic Preservation Guidelines. They are maintenance free. You should not need to repaint, remove rust, corrosion or mold for the life of the grilles. At about the same time we were creating our Arts and Crafts Collection which has over 60 sizes, we added our truly exquisiteLouis XIV Decorative Grille Collection.
Both designs have undergone an evolving design and manufacturing process. When we started our company all the masters were made by hand. The Arts and Crafts grilles were a collection of historic elements. Today we use historical carvings and technology to create our reproduction products.
Our original Louis XIV Grille and today’s Louis XIV Grille.
They are intended for forced air heating and air conditioning systems as either return air grilles or supply vents. They are made from an exterior grade resin appropriate for exterior applications. We have designed the best Foundation Crawl Space Vents in the market. We offer them in both our Louis XIV Foundation Crawl Space Vent Cover and Arts and Crafts Foundation Vent Cover.
We also manufacture the finest Decorative Return Air Filter grilles sold anywhere. Our handsome and functional filter grille looks like wall art or a decorative panel. We adapt the decorative grille by mounting it to a customized True Air filter grille door set. We cut our grille to the exact size of the filter grille door set, then remove the louvers from the door, and mount our grille with bolts to the door. The hinge and lock from the door set are retained.We also provide a frame that fits over the metal filter grille door assembly that is attached to the wall. The frame is in the same finish as the decorative grille. Two pieces of black mesh are provided which turns a white, pink or blue filter to a nice black background behind our grille. One to use and one ready to go when you change filters.
All prices include shipping. This is a big saving since filter grilles are sent in two boxes, one of which is oversized.
Another totally unique product using our decorative grilles are as speaker covers in home theaters and historic theaters, or in-wall and in-ceiling speakers.
The last everyday eyesore our handsome grilles transform are radiators. Decorative Radiator Covers made with our beautiful grilles create a handsome addition to any room.
