Custom Vents Complete the Look
As a flooring professional, you know vents are a perennial headache. Depending on the product, you may need to order vents from multiple suppliers, and stock covers often don’t complement the décor or match the flooring. Custom-made options—if even available—are expensive and often take weeks to get, necessitating a call back to install them. Aria Vents' custom vents solves these problems and are a better option.
These smart, elegant units perfectly match the flooring every time because they actually incorporate the flooring material into the vent cover. They can be used with virtually any type of flooring product from any manufacturer, so you can fulfill pretty much all of your vent needs with just a couple of stocking products. Aria Vents are quick and easy to install, too.
Metropolitan offers the two of Aria Vent’s most popular vent products: (1) The OG Collection and (2) the Flushmount Pro. The original OG Collection, a self-rimming style that can be used in new installs or to retrofit or replace existing vents. Simple and quick to install, too. The sleeker Flushmount Pro is designed for installation at the same time as the flooring material and provides an even cleaner finished appearance.
