Acoustically insulated blades and varying louver depths provide sound attenuation to lower infultrating or escaping noise, as well as protect against weather penetration. Airfoil blades are available for applications involving high velocity airflow.
Ruskin equipment screens effectively and attractively shield fans, cooling towers, equipment, and parking facilities from view in new construction and renovation applications. Whether the installation demands extensive air movement or total concealment, Ruskin offers a selection of products for partial to fully sight proof screening. Ruskin aluminum eggcrate grilles provide aesthetic enhancement to a variety of applications. With many grid size and depth options, designers can tailor the product to suit a variety of visual and installation requirements.
Combination louvers combine the aesthetic appearance of stationary louvers with positive airflow shutoff capabilities. Drainable models provide excellent water penetration protection at high velocities.
Louver and Grille products listed in this catalog section are designed and tested for extreme weather conditions. Ruskin "Extreme Performance" Louvers and Grilles are recommended to meet or surpass requirements of severe weather conditions, while protecting life and property.
Ruskin's Hurricane Louvers hold up under pressure in severe weather by preventing wind and rain damage. These louvers are built to withstand up to 160 psf windloads and nearly 9" per hour rainfalls. They are also the FIRST louvers in the industry to have gained approval in Miami-Dade County.
Ruskin Sunshades offer energy savings by reducing solar heat gain through glazing. With a wide variety of available blade styles and configurations, they also provide aesthetic appeal to the building exterior. Ruskin Sunshade models include airfoil, louver, tube and eggcrate blade styles. Custom Sunshade designs are also available. Ruskin Sunshades are constructed of aluminum components for reduced weight and excellent corrosion resistance. All models are available with a variety of Kynar or Anodize finishes.
Ruskin Wind-Driven louvers are designed to prevent the penetration of wind-driven rain in storm situations, reducting damage and additional operating expenses that can occur with standard wall louvers.
For over 30 years, Ruskin has been a leader in the sound control industry. Our commitment to new innovations and the highest level of quality enable our products to meet the needs of any applications. Ruskin manufactures both silencers and panels in order to flexibly meet your acoustical application needs.
