Model ASR supply air registers are constructed from highly corrosion resistant extruded aluminium. Designed with welded butt joints and corner inserts, it will be able to withstand rough handling during installation. The register is enamel coated and oven-baked for scratch resistant.
ASR register is a very popular choice for many cooling, heating and ventilating application and it is designed to handle large volumes of air with good throw patterns, acceptable pressure drop and sound levels. Constructed with horizontal and vertical blades, a wide range of air patterns can be achieved with every individual blade adjustable.
- AIR GRILLES double deflection grilles are specially designed to handle large volumes of air quietly and with good throw patterns.
- All aerofoil blades individually adjustable for any angle of deflection.
- Designed with aerofoil blades to achieve optimum air diffusion.
- Optional opposed blade volume control damper is easily adjustable from face of grille by a screwdriver.
- Free Area is approximately 80%.
- All grilles are enamel coated and oven-baked for scratch resistant.
- Corners of frame are reinforced with corner inserts and argon welded to maintain hairline mitre-joints and ensure rigid handling.
- Units of grilles have been tested at an independent N.A.T.A. accredited test laboratory in Australia.

SELECTION OF SUPPLY AIR REGISTERS
When selecting a supply Register to be used in specific location and a specific purpose, two important points have to be determined.
- What are the specific room-use characteristics, and
- What are the performance characteristics
The solution to these doubts can be found from the following four requirements.
- The Air Pattern Requirements – Drop
- The Throw Requirements
- The Air Quantity
- The Desired Noise Levels
1. The Air Pattern Requirements – Drop
For any given constant air quantity, the air drop increases as the area of the neck of the specific grille increases. The increased drop is due to the inverse relationship of the face velocity of the air stream and the size of the neck area.
Assuming that the spread angle of the aerofoil blades is maintained at a constant setting, the resulting length of the throw will increase as the quantity of air passing through the grille increases. Thus an increase in the air drop will follow.
To alter the performance of the Double Deflection (Register) grille, the easiest method is to adjust the spread angles of the aerofoil blades.
Three general rules apply to the relationship between the spread of the air and the throw.
- At a 45° setting of the aerofoil blades, the spread of the air is approximately 1.5 times the throw.
- At a 22 ½° setting of the aerofoil blades, the speed of the air is approximately 0.5 times the throw.
- At a 0° setting of the aerofoil blades, the speed of the air is approximately 0.35 times the throw.
2. The Throw Requirement
The throw of air from the grille being used should be limited to ensure the drop of the airstream does not fall below a reasonable working level within the specific room being conditioned if around 1500mm.
The proper throw condition will be achieved if the two following extremes of conditioning do not arise:
- Inadequate conditioning which fails to adequately cover the total area.
- Excessive quantities of air, relative to the neck area and spread angle of the grille, thus producing drafts.
3. The Air Quantity
The total volume of air to be delivered to each area is determined by the overall system design. Thus the number of outlets per room, for example, determines the volume of air to be transmitted through each grille.
4. The Noise Level Requirements
The noise level produced by a grille relates directly to the quantity of air being transmitted through the grille, as well as the neck size and louvre blade spread angle of the register.
For a given constant air quantity, the noise level (N.R.) will increase as the core area of the register decreases. Similarly again for a constant quantity of air, the noise level (N.R.) increases as the angle of the aerofoil blades closes from 0° to 90°.
Horizontal Deflection (Spread)
The diagrams shown below are based on the actual test results. They illustrate the spread and throw for a typical selection of a high sidewall supply outlet. The angle of spread also affects the angle of drop of the airstream.
