Hurricane louvers listed in Texas
ELC6375DXD, TDI-listed louvers
Eight Ruskin hurricane and wind-driven rain louvers are now listed by the Texas Department of Insurance, the company said.
This means the louvers meet the TDI criteria for protection from windborne debris, critical for providers who must minimize wind and rain damage to their buildings during a natural disaster.
The louvers are built to withstand up to 160 psf wind loads and close to 9 inches per hour of rain. The eight listed by the TDI are EME420MD, EME520MD, ELF6375DXD, ELC6375DXD, EME6625D, HZ850, PHB637HDXD and PHB6625D.
Louvers allow some ventilation and air on buildings while keeping out water, dirt and debris.
Ruskin covers all its products, including the hurricane and wind-driven rain louvers, with a limited warranty.
