As a member of the USGreen
Building Council, Ruskin is an active participant in producing and promoting
exceptional products that assist HVAC system designers in their pursuit of high
performance and LEED certified buildings. For example, our duct-mounted energy-recovery ventilators and our
miniventilators are perfect to add to any air handler to save energy.
Ruskin’s line of air doors provides a cost-effective way
of keeping conditioned air in the conditioned space. Our extensive line of
air-measuring, monitoring and control products are
used to manage outside air – not too much and not too little – just the right
amount for both full-load and part-load operation. Ruskin air measuring products also include the most extensive
set of AMCA certified products in the industry. AMCA certification is an
excellent way to prove sustainability and is ideal for your LEED projects.
add both beauty as well as the sensible functionality of solar-shading to any
building during those summer months. Ruskin also provides low-leak outside
air control dampers used to bring in outside air for “free-cooling” in lieu of
compressor energy when outside air conditions permit. Our control damper and industrial
damper sections provide additional information on the most complete
line of control dampers.
Included in our control damper family is Ruskin’s exclusive IAQ50X and Ruskin’s AMS050 dampers that both control and
measure outside air, ensuring proper ventilation rates--especially important
with VAV systems. To help properly balance duct branches, be sure to use
the VFBD15 or VFBD25 Ruskin Value flow balancing dampers.
Ruskin also stops the cold and the heat with a wide range of insulation
control dampers, including the IL35, CD40X2, and the thermally isolated
CDTI50. If you have a troublesome "hot-spot" in need of space
control, use our ZCDVAV or ZCDR25.
Ruskin’s heavy duty—industrial line of dampers are used throughout the
Industrial and Tunnel Damper Overview Brochure outlines the many
applications where we have developed air control devices to meet specific
applications. For example, Ruskin has specifically developed heavy duty
tunnel dampers for the challenging environment within transit tunnel
applications including fire dampers tested to the stringent BS 476 Part 20 and
UL555S for low leakage rating. Click here
to see a short video by Ruskin on our Tunnel Fire and Ventilation
dampers. Be sure to check out our complete listing of Industrial control
dampers in our catalog.
In addition to industrial tunnel dampers, Ruskin also tests our UL products
not only to UL555 and 555S, but some applications call for BS 476 Part 20 as
well. Here is another video
highlighting Ruskin’s FSD60 as it is put to the test! Our fire and smoke damper section also includes an interactive applications chart that
allows the user to identify the specific application. Based on
requirements, Ruskin will help the user select the appropriate UL approved fire
and/or smoke damper. In addition, Ruskin UL dampers are tested to UL555
and 555SWhether the application is for a floor, corridor, wall or ceiling, round
or rectangular, in-the-wall or out-of-the-wall, Ruskin’s "hotlink" will take you
to the damper data required to fit your application. Maximum UL approved
sizes are identified on this fire/smoke application chart. All Ruskin
fire/smoke dampers come with a standard five-year
warranty! Be sure to check out Ruskin’s exclusive Validator control system for the easiest
damper cycling program in the industry.
Ruskin’s line of backdraft and pressure relief dampers includes sixteen models
to choose from. From light commercial backdraft applications to our
CBS8BL damper used for protection against blasts and
instantaneous pressure changes, you can count on Ruskin for the most complete
line in the industry.
Penthouse, and Architectural and
Equipment Screen line provides architects, engineers and contractors with a
variety of aesthetically pleasing and weather resistant designs that can meet
the need of any job requirement. Using Ruskin’s “Louver Engineering and
Architectural Design System”, or LEADS, you can select the right louver based on your job’s
airflow, pressure drop and water resistance requirements. Be certain to
check out both our Hurricane models, as well as our Wind-Driven Rain
models for a variety of “weather tight” applications. If you need to
measure the air, be sure to use our air measuring louver. All Ruskin louvers can be finished
with Kynar baked enamel, Kynar, Pearledized hard coat finish, anodized (clear
and bronze) and other specialty finishes as the job requires.
Ruskin’s sound control section includes the latest on
Ruskin’s duct silencers and acoustical panel system.
