Flush mount vents are a style of hardwood floor register that sit flush to the flooring. These are commonly used with hardwood flooring that is 3/4” thick. Commonly these style vents are used for site finished wood and match the species of wood flooring being installed. The flush mount vents offer two-way diffusion of air and look sleek in the hardwood floor. They are much more seamless than a metal or drop in vent. The vent features the removable center portion and the frame. The frame has a groove so it can be installed with tongue and groove flooring. These vents should be installed when the flooring is installed and should not be in the walkways of your home.
Flush mount vents are sometimes called rimless vents. One of the big benefits of flush vents is that they don’t get in the way when you are placing furniture. Also you won’t trip over them because there is no raised lip. When selecting the size for a flush mount vent you will want to measure the opening size. The vent features the removable center portion and the frame. The size you measure is for the frame not the vent. The duct opening will be closer inside to the vent while the frame will sit on the subfloor to ensure it is safe and secure.
