TDF Breakaway Connections by Ruskin

Ruskin announces the availability of TDF roll-formed flange connections on fire and fire/smoke damper sleeves.  That's right! If you use TDF connections, Ruskin can roll-form that connection into the fire or fire/smoke damper sleeve.

That means the sleeve can be installed at the Ruskin factory and the fire or fire/smoke damper assembly can ship directly to the job site. The sleeve and TDF connection no longer need to be formed nor the fire damper installed at "the shop."

"TDF breakaway connections save labor, time and money and make Ruskin fire and fire/smoke dampers even easier to install," says David Wall, a member of the Ruskin Fire/Smoke Damper Application Group.

For more information about TDF, read our TDF installation instruction supplement.  For pricing and availability, contact your local representative, or contact Ruskin directly at (816)761-7476.

Ruskin's FSD60V Proves To Be The Right Fit For Hospital

...and Ruskin had the solution.The existing shafts were not fire rated and none of the penetrations were protected with fire or combination fire/smoke dampers. The plans called for new fire rated wall construction and combination fire/smoke dampers for penetrations in all shafts. Many of the applications had three ducts penetrating the shafts above the ceiling, one hot supply and one cold supply and one return air. Because the shafts were only 36 inches wide, it was impossible to use standard style combination smoke dampers with side mounted actuators and accessories. They would be too wide to properly fit in the space. KJWW Engineering Consultants turned to its local Ruskin Representative, Hart-Hammer, Inc., of Des Moines, Iowa, and contractor Cunningham, Inc., Oskaloosa, Iowa for help. Working together, Cunningham, Hart-Hammer and KJWW Engineering Consultants found that Ruskin's [model:fsd60v]FSD60V[/model] combination fire/smoke damper offered the performance and flexibility necessary to get the ...
