Brass Grille Manufacturers

Brass Tacks are one of the largest manufacturers of decorative brass grilles in the UK. Most of the grilles shown on this website are manufactured in our workshop here in Eastcote.

Decorative grilles are used for a variety of applications; they are mainly used in as radiator grilles in radiator cabinets, but are also seen in wall units, loudspeakers, air conditioning units or purely for decorative purposes.

As radiator cabinets become more fashionable there are more grille patterns available. If you have previously seen a grille but cannot find it on this website, please contact our sales team and we will endeavour to source it for you.

All brass grilles are supplied in a polished and lacquered brass finish unless otherwise stated. A number of alternative finishes are also available and are shown on this website. Grilles can also be supplied fitted into a frame: this not only enhances the appearance but also eases installation, as many frames just drop into position.
