Grille Cloth Installation Instructions
First,...mist the cloth lightly with a water mist, ......spraying lightly , not heavy.You want the cloth to be damp during the application process. This allows the cloth to shrink as it dries stretching any wrinkles that may be left.. Next roll your pattern face in, just as I sent it to you,...then make sure your pattern is aligned straight with the edge of your board across the top ( or bottom), then roll it out and check the side for alignment. Do this before applying the spray adhesive.If you are not applying the cloth to a speaker board, but directly to the cabinet, you will obviously want to roll the cloth the opposite way.A speaker board is recommended. Then, using 3M Super 27 or 77 spray adhesive, apply it to the edge of the board and all around the outer edge about a one inch wide band on the face side.You do not want to spray glue all over the board. Leave the inner field area of the board clean, free of any adhesive.This leaves the cloth free to stretch as it dries. (You can also spray the glue on a piece of paper and use a brush for applying in tight places.)Let the glue dry for about 15 minutes.Do not spray adhesive anywhere on the cloth. On a clean area of your work space, roll the cloth from the bottom up to the top, rolling your face side inward.Start the application in one corner at the top checking your design to be straight across. Then roll it out top to bottom. Make sure your first edge at the top is straight and secure. Then as you stretch the cloth gently, watch your pattern design , keeping it straight , so not to over stretch the design. Tightening slightly , top to bottom,... then side to side. Once you have achieved the desired position, fold the outer excess cloth down over the glued edge of your board. Let the project sit about one hour, then after the cloth has completely dried you may finish the trimming the back edge., if needed.

Here are some important things you need to know
before selecting your vintage radio grille cloth
When purchasing inquireabout the weight of yarn and how tightly the cloth is woven.
When holding your cloth to a light source, you should be able to see light through yourspeaker cloth fabric,which assures a good measure of sound quality.Also if a fabric is too tight, it could cause damage to the speaker, creating tears in the coneor damage to the voice coil.
A few of our generic patternsmeasure about50% percent light visual, however,most all are duplicated to be about 70 to 75 % light showing through the cloth. We have actually dropped a couple of the genericsbecauseI felt they were woven too tight.
This site is the only place to grille clothduplications, created with the precise weave, correct yarnselections and a finish productas true to thereal thing,..as any couldbe.
During the first two of the five years, ....Richmond Designs Inc was literally scanning the globe searching for a weaver to help us create a true quality duplication of the original 30s cloth. Aftermany monthsof hard work and persistence, we finally found a weaver to work with us right here in the USA. From the first runoff the looms to this date, we have managed to offerseveral authentic patterns. I state this because it isimportantthat you know, we don't just run down to the local fabric store and pick up a couple of yards of something you might like.
Our patterns were set up years ago and they are here to stay. The beautiful cloth we offer you now , will always be available to you on our site, or on .
Our 1930s duplications are sold all over the world.Thank you for viewing,Richmond Designs Inc
