This week the Ruskin® team attended the FHEA (Florida Healthcare Engineering Association), Trade Show. The goal of the FHEA is to advance the development of healthcare engineering through effective communication, educational opportunities and establishment of professional standards.
Ruskin® was showing off some of its dampers and louvers suitable for Florida Healthcare construction projects. Peter Blaha, Ruskin® Product Marketing Manager demonstrated some of Ruskin’s Louvers that have a Miami Dade Notice of acceptance, which is a state approval of products related to structural wind resistance of buildings. Ruskin’s Hurricane and Wind-Driven Rain Louvers hold up under pressure in severe weather events by preventing and minimizing wind and rain damage. Ruskin® Louvers were actually the FIRST louvers in the industry to gain approval in Miami-Dade County and continue to meet customers’ needs and requirements!

It’s important to keep our Representatives up-to-date with the latest Ruskin® product models, applications, and industry standards. We are providing them with the skills and tools they need to be at their best! Thank you to all who have attended!
- Fast and focused way to learn
Webinars are a fast paced medium of learning and have been with us for several years now. Where time is a valuable commodity they offer a niche well-timed learning experience.
- Recorded electronic source I can watch on my phone
From a technology standpoint as technology has progressed we can now even watch a webinar on the screen of our cell phones while sitting on a bus if we so desired with a 4G internet connection. Using YouTube we can even hold a repository of past webinars to be replayed when desired. I can also contact the presenter in most cases with follow up questions and go further into a subject.
- I can pick the topics to learn
If there is something you wish to learn about, be it industry specific or not, you can find a webinar covering just about any topic.
- I can do it at night
Convenience is a word that sums up the experience saving participants from traveling to a learning environment. Audiences are not limited by numbers or distance and people can attend a webinar event from just about anywhere in the World, at any time, without them or the host having to leave their office or even home.
- When I want to go further on the topic I can email or call the presenter
Webinars offer two-way interaction between the audience and presenters allowing for valuable structured question and answer sessions following presentations.
Ruskin® hosts a webinar series on the second Wednesday of every month offering learning on relevant HVAC topics. The next webinar on August 9th, 2017 will give attendees insight into the latest critical environment damper series, which offers products suited for corrosive prone, or sanitary based applications. The webinar will cover the product names and damper type, features and options that make them durable, and suitable applications.

Advances within the HVAC and Ventilation industry have to strongly rely on innovation in product development. The goal of new product development is ultimately recognizing, understanding and serving customer needs. If a new product cannot meet customer needs it will fail in the marketplace.
Focusing on product development is one of our proactive strategies and one where we continuously innovate and adapt on a daily basis. Knowledge of industry trends and technology helps evolve products. We rely on the input from ‘industry intelligent’ individuals to deliver valuable insights to support our offerings. The technology, knowledge, and adaptiveness of our company and staff allow us to satisfy industry test standards and customer requirements.
The forward innovations behind some of the recent products such as the EME720 louver and the corrosion resistant dampers were driven by our customer needs. Boundaries were pushed to provide products that meet or exceed that same customer’s needs and expectations. The technology behind these new products are intended to save customers money as well as provide increased durability and functionality they will not find anywhere else on the market.
