Rickard’s RA-grilles are available with or without plenums for ducted or ceiling return air respectively. Hinged RA-grilles fitted with removable and washable filter media are available to limit dust contamination of the return air.

It is important to consider the effect that RA-grille positioning has on the functioning of the air-conditioning system. Correct placement can assist the movement of supply air or the extraction of heat loads that should not be mixed with supply air. Incorrect placement can result in the short circuiting of supply air before it has done its job and in turn make it difficult for old air to make its way out of the building.

RCV & RSV fitted with washable filters are designed with a sturdy latch mechanism to securely fasten the hinged access panel into its frame. Velcro strips can be fitted as an option to hold the filter material in place when the hinged access panel is opened.

RLV’s are fitted with a cartridge filter secured in place with fold over metal tabs. The filter media can be washed and the carton holder reused and recycled.

Round Return Air Grilles (RRCV) cannot be hinged down so Velcro is used to secure the filter media in place.
