Measuring for Flushmount Wood Registers & Returns
Flush Mount Wood Registers & Returns are available in two, distinct types.
The flush mount with frame (pictured) is typically installed when flooring is installed. For sizing, please use the duct size and reference the overall frame size for installation.
The flush mount no frame is also ordered by measuring the duct size; however, the overall size of the opening must be considered. For example, a 4" x 10" flush mount wood register has an overall size of 6" x 12".
