Just mounted this today, replacing a lounder 80mm fan and a caseblower with two quieter fans (one 80mm on the inside, blowing into the radiator and this 120mm pulling out behind it).

I need a grill, 'cos there are sometimes dogs visiting. I don't want any little noses getting stuck in the fan or anything.
The question is how much I'd gain by getting a standard grill ( ), as I think this one stops a bit of air from passing through.
Is it worth looking for a new one (I know they are dirt-cheap, but I have to order them as I can't find any place that carries them locally for some unfathomable reason, and the freight costs more than the grills themselves), are we talking a hugely improved airflow with a standard fan grill here?
