Ruskin has introduced the EME720 seven-inch horizontal louver. The EME720 louver features a 56 percent 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.

The EME720 appeals to architects seeking an 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-by-120-inches and can be ordered with a variety of anodized and painted finishes, including standard colors and custom color matching. The louver’s aluminum construction ensures low maintenance and resistance to corrosion.
