Materials Used to Make a Floor Register or Wall Vent II

Steele is used only after being specially prepared to withstand the temperature variation that is required in the place of the floor register. Although physically durable metal, it is very much effected by natural forces that are abundant for any vent cover and thus requires special preparation. Steel is a good material due to its easily paintable properties as well. So even though it is not as good looking as Brass and not as versatile as aluminum, it is relatively cheaper and is a popular choice for a floor vent built.

Wood is the material for looks and quality. No metal or plastic can give you the cozy feeling of a wood register. Oak, maple, walnut, hickory and cherry are main wood materials used by Ennospace. Some others also include bamboo, beech, and birch. Wood also has an added versatility due to its staining properties. By staining your wooden floor register you can give it absolutely any look you want.

Plastic is the least expensive material of them all. The plastic used for floor register is specially designed to withstand temperature changes and thus is a perfect choice for anyone with a smaller budget. The only drawback of the plastic floor register is its looks. The technology has simply not come this far to mimic real material with plastic well. For any other practical purposes it is a fantastic supplement.
