L-Bead Installation: New and Improved
Attention architects and designers: Coco Architectural Grilles & Metalcraft's new L-Bead Installation is now available for ALL grilles! The most popular type of installation for metal grilles is a flush plaster installation. The best way to do this is with an L-bead option like ours that allows for a Level 5 Plaster finish. It looks like the grille is built right into the wall! (Patent Pending)
What is L-Bead?
This installation option is commonly known as a “mud-in” and we have a patent pending for our unique product. What makes ours different? We have received a lot of feedback from installers and all of our design features are inspired by their input. We have the highest level of plaster recess, our welding process prevents plaster cracking, and the core of the grille is removable, which allows for future duct work behind the grille without damaging the plaster.
Creation and Installation
Coco Metals is extremely proud that our L-Bead grilles are fabricated with material extruded in America. We fabricate these frames from a solid single piece of proprietary aluminum extrusion. The removable core grille is fastened with stainless steel threaded inserts at the bottom of the grille as well. Whether you are fitting for a mitered corner or curved wall, these grilles and frames can be fashioned to fit your architectural vision.
This design creates an elegant flush finish that gives the illusion that the grill was built into the wall. This feature is in high demand among our upscale residential projects. The L-Bead installation option can be applied to linear bar grilles, decorative perforative grilles, and any other custom metal products we offer.
