Ruskin says it new EME720 7-in horizontal louver features 56% free area and combines a continuous-blade architectural appearance with the performance of a wind-driven rain-resistant louver. The louver’s architectural mullion is recessed, notched in the blade, and utilizes drain pockets allowing water to drain away while contributing to an appearance of one continuous louver.

Closely-spaced horizontal blades minimize the penetration of wind-driven rain, reducing water damage and additional operating expenses. The louver is available in single sections as large as 90 by 120 in and can be ordered with a variety of anodized and painted finishes, including standard colors and custom color matching. The company says the louver’s aluminum construction ensures low maintenance and high resistance to corrosion.
