What’s the Difference Between a Grille and a Register?
The term grille is commonly applied to any air outlet or intake that consists of a square or rectangular face and neck, and whose facial appearance is made up of stationary or adjustable louvers which may be used to deflect the air.
A register is simply a grille that incorporates an integral damper for air volume control.
What is a Diffuser?
A diffuser is an outlet which discharges supply air in various directions and planes, and serves several purposes:
- Evenly distributes the flow of air in the desired direction(s)
- Enhances the mixing of room air by entraining the room air into the diffuser’s primary air jet
- Delivers both conditioning and ventilation air to the occupied space
- Reduces the velocity of the air as it passes through the system
- Often uses Coanda Effect to attach a jet of air to the ceiling or another surface
- Can be integrated into architectural ceilings to enhance aesthetic appeal
