Partnering to Create Cutting Edge Solutions

Architects Spillis Candella DMJM did not want Consolidated Rental Car Facility at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to look like a typical parking garage. CS offers a wide variety of grille patterns that not only met the firm's aesthetic requirements, but also were capable of meeting the project's 150 mph wind load, 130 square foot wind pressure and 50-75% free area requirements.

Architectural Grille Applications

Architectural grilles are both decorative and functional, and are typically seen on the exterior of buildings. They provide a decorative facade while still allowing for air and light to pass through. Architectural grilles are often seen on building facades, parking garages and rooftops.


Architectural grilles are also a responsible alternative to time consuming and expensive exterior renovation projects. Grilles are available in a broad range of materials and finishes, and can easily mount to existing structures to give older buildings a facelift.

Considerations & Requirements for Architectural Grilles

Beyond design considerations, it's important to consider the purpose of the grille. The material, the thickness, and the location of the architectural grille will affect how much light and privacy is offered.


Architectural grilles serve multiple purposes:
     • Provide a decorative facade to a building or structure
     • Offer light filtering to the interior of a building, which can help with reducing cooling costs
     • Offer privacy to offices or other commercial buildings
     • Improve the exterior aesthetics of utilitarian buildings such as parking garages
