Ruskin® has introduced the EME720 7-in horizontal louver. The EME720 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.
Ruskin officials said the EME720 appeals to architects seeking a long, uninterrupted look that will enhance a variety of monumental structures, including stadiums, arenas, and convention centers. It also appeals to engineers, who can take advantage of its weather performance and free area in their mechanical designs.
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 in by 120 in and can be ordered with a variety of anodized and painted finishes, including standard colors and custom color matching.
