Vertical Stationary Louver Provides Added Protection During Hurricane Conditions

The EME5625MD louver from Ruskin, a 5-inch vertical stationary louver, is engineered to provide added protection to buildings during hurricane conditions. In compliance with Miami-Dade standards, the EME5625MD is constructed of extruded aluminum, is low maintenance and offers resistance to corrosion.

The vertical blade spacing of the vertical stationary louver prevents penetration of wind-driven rain.

The EME5625MD is designed to meet a wind load of 160 psf. Its 1.25-inch vertical blade spacing prevents penetration of wind-driven rain, earning a Class A efficiency rating at 50 miles-per-hour. The louver meets the AMCA 550 standard, which is tested up to wind speeds of 110 miles-per-hour and a rain fall rate of 8.8-inches per hour. It also meets the AMCA 540 Enhanced Protection standard for Missile Level E impact (nine-pound 2×4 at 55 miles-per-hour), which is required for critical/essential facilities and safe rooms, such as hospitals, police stations and community centers.

Testing at these levels demonstrates the protection this louver can deliver under extreme weather conditions, as it is AMCA-certified for both wind-driven rain protection and air performance.

This model is also available in round and triangular configurations. As part of its commitment to quality, Ruskin covers all its products, including the EME5625MD, with a limited five-year warranty from the date of delivery.
