According to Ruskin, its EME3625DFLMD louver 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.
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. The company claims this level of performance will protect equipment and structures behind the louver, helping prevent additional damage and operating expenses.
