The reason Reggio Registers continues to be the number one choice of architects, builders, and homeowners is found in our uncompromising dedication to craftsmanship. We stand behind our Lifetime Guarantee because we use only one measure of quality – perfection. That starts with a commitment to using premium quality materials for our grilles, registers, and louvers.
Reggio's solid brass grilles are hand cast of fine solid brass, then brushed to a low-luster finish and lacquered to retard tarnishing. Our brass products have a subtle glow that enhances period homes and restorations, yet also looks wonderful in contemporary settings. At 3/16" thick, Reggio's hand cast brass vent covers are sturdy works of art. Solid brass grilles and registers are available in Reggio's iconic, patented Scroll pattern.
Reggio's ultra durable cast iron grilles and registers are our original product offering; back in 1978 when Mike Reggio couldn't find high quality cast iron floor registers for his historic home, he decided to make them! Almost 40 years later, Reggio's cast iron grilles still set the standard for craftsmanship. The baked on powder coat finish provides extra protection and a rich, low luster finish that lasts. Cast iron is an excellent material for high traffic areas, or anywhere strength and durability is required, and provides the authentic look of antique registers.
Aluminum registers are lightweight, rust-proof (making them a superior choice for bathrooms and other damp environments – indoors or out) and strong enough to provide years of service without warping or cracking. We guarantee it! Our cast aluminum registers are available in Reggio's classic Scroll or the modern Square pattern in a variety of colors, including Gray, which can be painted to match your décor (we recommend paint made for metal and not a latex paint). Our aluminum registers are guaranteed for life.
Reggio's Square pattern grilles in Steel are a top choice of designers, architects, and homeowners seeking designs that will complement both traditional and contemporary settings. Handcrafted from solid high-quality steel, then hand finished and powder coated, each piece creates a modern look that lasts. Available in five colors: Oil Rubbed Bronze, Black, Silver, White, and Gray for custom paint colors to match your décor (we recommend paint made for metal and not a latex paint). Our Steel grilles and registers are guaranteed for life.

If this is a replacement, lift out the old vent cover.
If you're working on a new construction, proceed directly to Step 2.
Measure the opening in your floor, wall or ceiling.
The width and length of your opening should match the width and length of the inside measurements of the grille.
Please measure again to ensure correct measurements.
Go to the product page of your choice (metal, wood, etc.).
Choose the option that best fits your needs then choose the inside measurement that matches the width and length of your inside opening.
Our Printable Size Chart is the perfect companion to help you find the right size grille for your installation.
Reggio's louvers add a functional air control element to our handmade American grilles, and are handcrafted in American of premium quality materials and guaranteed for life.
Note: these louvers are designed to regulate the amount of airflow, not the direction of airflow.
Our louver assemblies are designed to fit behind our grilles to control air flow and increase heating and cooling efficiency. Mounted independently of the grille, they are opened and closed with the provided key. In some cases, you may have to remove the grille to adjust louvers. Allow 2 5/16" clearance for louvers behind grille. Foam strips for installation included with each louver.
When we say our grilles are carefully handcrafted to last a lifetime we really mean it. To get a sense for the care and meticulous detail that goes into creating each and every Reggio Register® grille and register watch the video below and learn why our grilles are the finest available anywhere in the world.

A register is a complete unit with a cast iron louver attached to allow control over the flow of air. If you don't see a register in the size you need simply combine a louver assembly and grille to create your own custom register.
The reference to holes refers to the screw holes for mounting the grille. When installing into a wall or ceiling you need screw holes, while with a floor application it's your preference. Many customers use screw holes when installing on carpet because the carpet is often too thick and the lip of the grille doesn't catch in the opening. Other customers use screw holes to prevent children from lifting the grille out of the opening.
Yes. If the inside measurement on the grille you're looking at is listed as 10"x 4" you can cut your hole 10"x 4" and the lip will fit into your opening. For more information about measuring please see our How to Measure page.
Aluminum grilles are most often used in wall or ceiling applications because they are lighter in weight. Aluminum grilles are also rustproof and therefore perform better in moist locations. Also due to their lighter gray color, Aluminum grilles are easier to paint to match the surrounding environment.
Shipping depends on your location in relation to Leominster, Massachusetts. Approximate delivery time is anywhere from 2-7 business days. Orders can be upgraded to UPS Next Day, 2nd Day or 3 Day Air to ensure faster delivery. Please contact us for upgraded shipping prices or for the status of your order.
Our grilles are manufactured in different ways. All of our scroll designs and some of our square designs are castings made with a lip on the back that ranges between approx. ¼" to ½" deep which fits into the ductwork. The border that runs around that lip and sits on top of your opening is approx. 3/16" thick. Many of our square design grilles are made from 3/16" sheet aluminum or steel with no lip on the back.
Yes. All cast iron, brass, aluminum and steel grilles can be recessed into the floor but only during a new construction or modification of an existing hole. We recommend you wait to receive the grille then use it as its own template.
We can and do make custom sizes especially in wood and in our square design steel grilles. Please contact us for a quote and production schedule. Custom sizes is our scroll design or in cast iron, or brass require the fabrication of custom patterns and molds which are very expensive to produce, anywhere for $3,000 to $5,000.
Approximate delivery time for custom wood orders is 4-6 weeks. Please contact customer service at 1-800-880-3090 to tell us what size you need and what type of wood you are interested in.
Louvers do not attach directly to the grille. All louvers tension fit into your opening and come with a foam outer strip to prevent damage and ensure fit. You just push the louver into the boot of the duct and place the grille on top. The grille will sit on top of the opening but not connect to the louver. A key is included that fits through the face of the grille and allows flow adjustments.
Yes, our grilles can be used outside. We recommend the aluminum grilles for outdoor use because they are rustproof and fare better in moist environments.
Although we are continually evaluating the cost and reliability of the vendors we use for shipping, currently UPS is our vendor for most packages. UPS charges are based on weight and distance from our location in Leominster, MA, but to simplify the calculation we do average the distance so everyone's rate is based primarily upon the package weight. UPS charges increase as the weight of the package increases. Unfortunately where the cost of shipping is concerned, our products are heavy. The weight of each individual product is shown on our site and in our catalog next to the S & H charge.
In addition to UPS shipping charges, we also package each item we sell individually wrapped to ensure that it arrives without scratches or dings of any sort. This costs money and time, but we believe it is essential that when you open the package the product looks every bit as good as it did when it left our facility. Finally we insure each package. All of this increases our costs above the simple freight charges from UPS.
Even in shipping, however, there are some economies of scale. For this reason we do offer discounts on shipping and handling for four or more items shipped at one time to a single address. (Our shipping discount schedule is published in our catalog and on the website.) We encourage you to take advantage of this savings whenever possible.
We certainly do realize that shipping and handling add to your overall cost and we continually look for ways to control those costs, but we also know that it is critical to you that your order arrive timely and without damage.
When you return a product, please repack it in the original shipping carton. No refunds are given on original shipping charges. We urge you to check sizes and measure accurately. All Returns after 30 days will be subject to a 15% Restocking Charge.
