Ruskin’s new automatic balancing damper and curtain fire damper assembly
The only unit in the industry that combines an ABD with a UL555 1 ½-hour static-rated fire damper to meet building code requirements.
Ruskin introduced a new series of pressure-independent automatic balancing dampers (ABDs). According to the company, the ABD-FD automatic balancing damper and curtain fire damper assembly is the only unit in the industry that combines an ABD with a UL555 1 ½-hour static-rated fire damper to meet building code requirements.
The Ruskin ABD-FD automatically regulates damper positioning for precise and automatic airflow in supply applications. It also protects rated barriers, while providing constant balanced airflow. The result is energy-saving performance that mitigates stack effect in high-rise buildings and improves comfort for building occupants, making it ideal for commercial and hospitality settings, such as offices and hotels.
The damper works across the full pressure range in supply applications.
The ABD-FD also features a unique-to-the-industry antimicrobial agent that mitigates the growth of mold and bacteria and contributes to improved indoor air quality. In addition, the damper is UL 2043-listed with a UL94V-0 flame and smoke spread rating.
