The AHR Expo and its co-sponsors, ASHRAE and AHRI, recognized our FEMA Grille with an HONORABLE MENTION in the Ventilation Category of the 2012 AHR Expo Innovation Awards Competition.  The Innovation Awards results will be published in the ASHRAE Journal, on the AHR Expo website, and in a number of other Industry Publications.

Ruskin's XP500S Extreme Weather Grille protects wall penetrations from flying debris caused by tornadoes, hurricanes and severe storms is critical in the design of Community Shelters (ICC-500) and Safe Rooms (FEMA 361). It offers designers a ventilation solution for their near-absolute life safety requirements.

The heavy duty grille can be mounted internally, externally or in conjunction with other louvers providing protection and certified performance. Rated for an industry leading 266 psf windload,  the XP500S Grille meets or exceeds the building envelope protection requirements while complementing the construction of safe rooms.
