    Hi Paul,

    We are bringing our latest 6x14 to market shortly and then will be looking into new sizes, especially the sizes seen more in the South and Southeast - larger squares and rectangles. Hard to give a timeline yet but definitely something we are going to expand into.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    I'd like to second this. My house has nothing but 8x8 square vents, and that means none of your sizes are small enough to fit. Please consider doing them as soon as possible!

    Agreed. 7 out of 9 of my vents are square. Since my house is old with addons, the temperature varies alot from room to room. Please consider this as soon as possible as I would rather purchase from Flair then a competitor like Keen.

    So one question on the square sizes - I assume they are all on the ceiling - preferences on the grill pattern/throw?  Assuming its all ceilings, perhaps we could do a curved blade design?  We could also stick with the current design to keep things consistent if that would be preferable since many homes have a mix of sizes.  I'd also like to make the front plates out of aluminum instead of steel (save on weight) if its ceiling only - any preferences there?

    All of my vents (7 square and 2 rectangle) are all ceiling vents. I would prefer if the grills are the same for consistency. I like the idea of using aluminum instead of steel, however, would these dent and crease easily?

    These are just my personal preferences. But if you move forward with square vents, how many variants would you offer at once? I have three different square sizes, bathrooms have the smallest vent, then bedrooms, then larger rooms.

    I appreciate the quick feedback.

    Aluminum shouldn't have any mechanical issues, they are commonly used for ceiling and wall vents so long as an adequate gauge is used.  Do you mean you would prefer grills that match our current design or grills that would be consistent across the square and larger sizes?

    In terms of new sizes, I'd imagine that we'd likely target an 8x8 and 10x10 next since as best we can tell, those are the next two most popular sizes but are still reviewing tickets and what not to try and verify that those are the best next sizes to make.

    For the 3 sizes you have - what sizes are they?

    @Daniel Myers - I have eight 8x8 vents and two 6x6 vents, most on the ceiling. Also - thank you very much for participating in these conversations, it's much appreciated.

    Nathan - "most on the ceiling" - are the 8x8s all in the ceiling or also on the floor?

    The third ceiling size for squares is 12 x 12, which covers the larger common areas of the house. 

    For the pattern, I would like it to be consistent with the patterns of your current offerings. However, I'm not sure if the pattern causes efficiency issues for ceilings.

    Throwing my hat in the ring here. I'm interested in purchasing flair vents as well but will hold off until an 8x8 model is launched as that is what I have in my ceiling as well. Very interested in seeing these come out.

    Daniel Myers, all 8x8s are on the ceiling. So I have seven 8x8s in the ceiling, one 6x6 in the ceiling, and two 6x6s in a wall.

    Adding a +1 to the 6x6 vents. The second floor of my home is filled with these ceiling vents.

    Perhaps this is a stupid question, but any thought been given to trim kits for support alternate sizes, like keen?
