Ruskin Louvers Are a Perfect Match for Nordstrom

...required a classic Ruskin solution."Ruskin's ability to customize its complete product line to meet the specific requirements for an individual project like Nordstrom is a significant advantage. We were able to meet their design specifications by modifying the Ruskin ELF louver," says Bob Roy, the Air Commodities sales engineer responsible for the project. To help guarantee a flawless installation, McKinstry/Roberge, the installing contractor, visited the Ruskin manufacturing facility while the louvers were in production. "We wanted to be familiar with the louver construction and review installation requirements with Ruskin's design/manufacturing team," says Karl Seemann, McKinstry/Roberge's sales manager. "Ruskin's facility is impressive. They use state-of-the-art production techniques, including an automated finishing system. When we returned to Seattle, we were confident we would receive a quality product." For over 40 years, Ruskin has been selected to provide solutions to thousands of new and ...

Ruskin's IAQ50 Solves Vegas Air Curtain Challenge

...Ruskin always pays off.Built using Ruskin's [model:iaq50]IAQ50[/model] air flow measuring and control dampers, the new air curtain successfully provides consistent airflow. The system includes two 65,000 cfm centrifugal fans installed in the space below the return air walkway grate. The air returns through the grate into the basement plenum and passes through two 144 square foot filter and coil banks. It is then ducted up from the fans into the plenum space above the air curtain supply opening. The air then passes through the IAQ50 air flow measuring/control dampers and is direct-ed through an adjustable deflection type grille. The individual IAQ50 dampers measure and control the airflow between the existing structural supports. This helps guarantee the air curtain maintains the required velocity and prevents conditioned air from escaping through the opening. "Opening up the Four Queens to the Fremont Street Experience has been a tremendous success" says Max Proctor, Four Queens Building manager. "We ...
