A self-rimming vent is one that sits on the surface of an installed floor. It rims the floor much like the metal vents.

A flush-mount vent sits flush with 3/4" hardwood floor. It is strongly recommended that this vent be installed with the hardwood floor.

A cold-air return is a vent that is usually much larger than a standard heating vent. These are usually wall-mounted and are positioned in line with the baseboard.

Sand all surfaces lightly with fine grit sandpaper. Do not use steel wool as it tends to shed fibres that stick to the grain and ruin a smooth finish. Stain all surfaces of the register: top, ends and louvers to the desired colour. No need to finish the back of the vent as it is sealed at the factory.

1. Allow to dry thoroughly.
2. Apply three coats of desired finish to all surfaces with a light sanding in between.
3. Allow to dry thoroughly

Some areas require an air flow regulator, this is why all of our standard warm air vents come with one.

It is not recommended that you use wooden floor vents in high traffic areas.
