When choosing a Panel Grille style, three variables must be determined: number of blades per foot, blade thickness and width of the blades. Therefore, the first number in a Panel Grille name is the number of blades, the second is the blade thickness in 16ths of an inch and the third number is the blade depth in 16ths of an inch.
Above Ceiling Access Panel Grilles can be easily made accessible by removing sections or by hinging an individual section. Modifications such as hinging are done in the field during installation. For standard removal, release the Rulon clips and remove the Grilles successively.
Lighting Fixtures Both recessed incandescent and linear fluorescent fixtures are compatible with Panel Grille ceilings. Lighting fixtures must be supported independently from the Panel Grille ceiling.
Acoustics Panel Grilles are considered acoustically transparent. The addition of a fiberglass blanket above the Grille will enhance the acoustical characteristics.
Wood Panel Grilles Panel Grilles can be used in a variety of situations including Walls. Wall mounted Grilles can provide sound modification or attenuation when acoustical material is installed behind the Grilles. Wall mounted Panel Grilles are often specified for auditoriums, meeting rooms, and conference rooms. The results include controlled sound levels and beautiful wall surfaces that are resistant to damage. Panel Grilles can be easily attached to walls by direct screwing with the appropriate fasteners.
