YIN Architectural Ceiling Return Air Grille combines discretion and efficiency in order to answer the needs of both architects and engineers.
In order to exhaust the air effectively and quietly, ceiling returns must be designed with the largest unobstructed opening possible. This, however, comes with the unappealing result of seeing the rigid metal or flexible duct connection behind the face.
The YIN Architectural Ceiling Return solves the appearance problem without compromising on efficiency. Powder coated with either the same or different color for the face and on the inside, it uses a 45-degree angled blades return grille face. This angled blade feature allows visibility to the painted wall opposite to the duct connection. The result is a discreet look hiding the duct from every visible angle and a return grille that blends in with its environment. YIN Architectural Ceiling Returns can either blend discreetly with the ceiling when using the standard white-on-white finish, or add depth to the ceiling with a white face and an interior color matching a dominant color in the room.
The removable hinged face with magnetic locks is secure and easy-to-open, providing easy access for cleaning and filter replacement.
YIN comes standard with earthquake tabs and is available with 10” round, or 12” and 16” oval collars, or with a large rectangular opening for plenum ceilings. It is suitable for open, closed or false ceilings.
