Ruskin solves the Caribbean design challenges

The Hato International Airport upgrade was not without its design challenges.  Due to the salt laden, corrosive atmosphere of the Caribbean Ocean and the warm tropical climate, this project required a unique combination of Ruskin products.  Three distinct models of Ruskin high performance louvers, as well as Ruskin sunshades, were specified and selected by Aviation Services Bechtel Civil Company.  In addition, Ruskin louvers were designed to meet high windload applications that may occur during hurricane conditions. Ruskin provided structural calculations and built the louvers to the exact requirements of the building.  Our industry best 20-year warranty on our Kynar®finish means not only will these louvers enhance the airport’s appearance but will provide years of exceptional, maintenance-free service. The choice of Ruskin’s decorative sunshades provided both function and beauty while protecting the structure from the heat of the Caribbean sun.

Case Study: St. John Medical Center

Ruskin Brings Comfort to Medical CenterThe owners of St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, OK find comfort in knowing their emergency generator system is protected by Ruskin. A newly built penthouse using Ruskin’s Wind Driven Rain Resistant EME6625 Louver keeps the top-floor generator room dry and secure. Designed to handle the severe weather conditions often found in the Midwest, the EME6625 Louver creates very low pressure drop while providing the best combination of rain protection and high airflow capacity. To meet an increase in demand for medical services, the owners of St. John Medical Center recently expanded their complex — including the 500 bed hospital. Located in the heart of Tulsa, OK, the medical center is subjected to the threat of rain throughout the year with occasional large hail and violent windstorms. The new medical center expansion included a state-of-the-art emergency generator system located on the top floor. This meant that large intake openings had to be placed on the rooftop to feed ...

Case Study: St. John Medical Center

Ruskin Has the SolutionTo protect the openings, a 54' x 15' x 5' tall vertical blade Wind Driven Rain Resistant Penthouse was mounted above the generator room. The penthouse solution was designed by Keith Browne of Lee and Browne Consulting Engineers using Ruskin’s Wind Driven Resistant EME6625 Louver. The engineers chose this Ruskin louver because they were able to design a structure that creates very low pressure drop and provides an excellent combination of rain protection with high airflow capacity. “The emergency generator installation which the penthouse serves has an intake air flow requirement of 375,000 CFM,” says Keith. “The vertical blade design offers enhanced performance versus traditional horizontal blade louvered penthouses.” The hospital’s new penthouse is the largest ever built by Ruskin using a Wind Driven Rain Resistant Louver. These louvers have been specifically designed and tested in the AMCA Wind Driven Rain Test for use in the most severe weather conditions. With the performance of ...
