New 3-inch vertical stationary louver from Ruskin meets AMCA 540 Basic Protection
The EME3625DFLMD from Ruskin is the only 3-inch louver to be listed to Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) standards 540 for impact testing and 550 for high-velocity wind-driven rain.
In compliance with Miami-Dade standards, the EME3625DFLMD is constructed of extruded aluminum for low maintenance and high resistance to corrosion. It is the thinnest and lightest wind-driven rain louver on the market.
“We’re proud to offer this industry-exclusive product to our customers,” says Jim Smardo, director, architectural solutions at Ruskin. “The EME3625DFLMD represents the future-ready engineering of our products as we see more extreme weather.”
The EME3625DFLMD is designed to meet a wind load of 80 psf and satisfies the AMCA 550 standard, which is tested at wind speeds of 110 mph and a rainfall rate of 8.8 inches per hour. The closely-spaced vertical blades prevent penetration of wind-driven rain, earning a Class A efficiency rating at 29 mph and 50 mph. This level of performance will protect equipment and structures behind the louver, helping prevent additional damage and operating expenses.
As part of its commitment to quality, Ruskin backs all its products, including the new EME3625DFLMD, with a limited five-year warranty from the date of delivery.
