Panel Grilles

Panel grilles are an excellent choice for both ceiling and wall applications and are frequently used in new construction as well as renovation projects. 

Our Company offers many Panel Grille profiles, wood species, and can custom match any color.  Panel Grilles can be specified in any combination of profile, species, and color, providing the designer with a myriad of possibilities. 

Panel Grilles are light weight and easy to install.  Our Company's special clips allow the installer to snap the Grilles directly to standard heavy duty 15/16” ceiling grid. The ceiling is easily accessible by removing the clips from the grid.  The countless design options and the easy installation make Panel Grilles a great choice for any ceiling area. 

Our Company's regional sales managers and experienced engineering team are available to answer any question and help you specify Our Company Panel Grilles in your next project.

Wood Styles and Selections

Doweled Panel Grilles: Doweled Panel Grilles are assembled using 5/8” diameter dowels on 12” centers along the length of the blade.  Doweled Panel Grilles are supplied in standard 12” widths and in standard lengths up to 10'.  Dowels are positioned on 12” centers beginning 5 ½” from the grille ends.   They are available in a variety of blade profiles and spacings to fit any design need.  The dowels can be finished black or stained to match the Panel Grille. 

Wood-Backed Panel Grilles: Wooden cross-members are used to assemble the grille blades.  Standard Wood-backed Grilles are 12” wide, although wider grilles are available.  Cross members are positioned on 12” centers beginning 5 ½” from the grille ends.  Wood-backers can be finished black or stained to match the Panel Grille. 


  • Available in Doweled, Wood-backed or both Doweled and Wood-backed for added strength.

  • Available in even foot lengths up to 10'.  Actual lengths of Doweled Panel Grilles are 1” shorter than the next even foot to create a 1” reveal when installed.

  • Our Company provides clips for easy attachment to standard 15/16" T-Rail.

  • Flexible dowels are available for custom curved applications.

  • The quick and easy installation saves our clients time and money during installation.

Finishes and Fire Retardancy

  • Custom stains, clear sealers, or color treatments are spray applied using state-of-the-art finishing equipment.

  • Our Company can custom match any color selected by the designer, architect, or owner's representative.

  • Our Company Linear Wood is available with NFPA Class A or UBC Class 1 fire rating as tested in accordance with ASTM E-84.

  • The fire treatment process does not affect the quality of the wood finish.

Special Considerations

  • Above Ceiling Access: Panel Grilles can be easily made accessible by removing sections or by hinging an individual section.  Modifications such as hinging are done in the field during installation.  For standard removal, release the Our Company clips and remove the Grilles successively.

  • Lighting Fixtures: Both recessed incandescent and linear fluorescent fixtures are compatible with Panel Grille ceilings.  Lighting fixtures must be supported independently from the Panel Grille ceiling. 

  • Acoustics: Panel Grilles are considered acoustically transparent.  The addition of a fiberglass blanket above the Grille will enhance the acoustical characteristics. 

  • Air Handling Ducts: Diffusers and ducts can be installed above the Panel Grille prior to Grille installation.  A closed plenum can be achieved with the use of acoustical batting.  Air control patterns, which fit snugly between the Grille blades, can be supplied for each style of Panel Grille. 

  • Wall Panel Grilles: Panel Grilles can be used in a variety of situations including Walls.  Wall mounted Grilles can provide sound modification or attenuation when acoustical material is installed behind the Grilles.  Wall mounted Panel Grilles are often specified for auditoriums, meeting rooms, and conference rooms.  The results include controlled sound levels and beautiful wall surfaces that are resistant to damage. Panel Grilles can be easily attached to walls by direct screwing with the appropriate fasteners. 

  • Baffle Grilles: A relatively new usage for members of the Panel Grille family is to simulate a ceiling plane with a series of vertically hung Panel Grilles.  The effect, when viewed from the floor, is a continuous decorative ceiling with both horizontal and vertical interest.  It is particularly effective when finishing large areas with high ceilings.  Baffle Panel Grilles are unique to each project, easy to install, and result in an attractive one-of-a-kind ceiling.

Quick Facts

  • Trim and Border Treatments: End caps and junction trims are available in woods and finishes that compliment the Panel Grilles selected. These accessory strips enhance the appearance of the final installation. The trim designs are particularly effective in joining ceiling sections that run in opposing directions, and are regularly specified on wall projects.
  • Easy Installation: Panel Grilles are generally suspended from standard 15/16\\\\\\\" heavy-duty T-rails. The carriers are generally black in color to match dowels. Panel Grilles can be hung by dowel clips, pushed around the dowel then snapped onto the carrier. A direct screw-mounted attachment may be used when access above is not essential.

Design Ideas

Panel Grilles can provide decorative treatments for walls and ceilings. It is the answer to covering large ceiling areas in a unique and eye catching way. With Our Companys wide selection of wood species, many varieties of Panel Grille styles and custom stains and finishes, a unique ceiling or wall design is only limited by the imagination of the designer.
