4 PCI Industries - Brands
Pottorff (1928)  Access Doors: Duct & Equipment Access, Fire Rated  Dampers: UL Fire / Fire-Smoke / Radiation, Air Control, Back-draft  Louvers: Mechanical, Operable, Penthouse, Acoustical All-Lite (1946)  Louvers: Architectural, Screens, Penthouse, Acoustical  Ornamental Metals: Medallions, Canopies, Specialty Metals  Sun Control: Exterior Shading, Light Shelves Dynasonics (1969)  Duct Silencers: Rectangular, Round, Elbow, External Fill  Louvers: Acoustical  Panel Enclosures: Fan Housing, Equipment Enclosures

5 UL Products  Triple-V, Airfoil and True-Round FSD / SD’s

7 Innovative Solutions  Single-Sided Picture-Frame Mounting Angles
 Integral Mounting Angle  UL Ceiling Radiation Damper for Wood Truss with Side Tap Duct Connection  Factory Mounted Duct Smoke Detector  UL Approved Fire-Rated Bath Fan Systems  Out-Of-Partition Designs for Wood Stud Assemblies  Four-Way Installation - Solves the Unknown Single-Sided Angle See Next Slide VFD-10-IM Ships complete and ready to install from the factory – Single piece installation – No straps, angles or flanges required. Virtually eliminates installation errors (screws in the blade track, missing angle, blades out of the wall, etc.) Single-Side angle system. Wood Truss (CFD-521) Developed in conjunction with USG to solve architectural constraint of previous UL rated floor-ceiling system design that did NOT allow penetrations of any kind. Prior to this product hvac were run through a drop soffet around the perimeter of the room with sidewall registers. Not typically what the architect wanted, but, since no systems were listed with a penetrations they had no choice. The CFD-521 solved the problem – provides architectural freedom and reduced cost. As a result the CFD-521 is now the basis of design in most low/mid-rise condominium/apartments. Factory Mounted Duct Smoke Detector After a series of jobs where the interface wiring between the FSD motor and the duct-smoke detector was mistakenly forgotten a group of design engineers requested that we develop the capability to factory mount and interface wire a duct smoke detector onto our FSD. Sounded simple enough, so we engineered a compact solution complete with single point interface wiring and received approval from UL within a matter of weeks. Fire-Rated Bath Fan Assemblies Pioneered testing at UL. Often times these fan assemblies contain significant plastic components (motormounts, fan wheels, etc.) which melt during a fire. Which, in and of itself is not necessarily a problem. However, the problem arises when, say the motor mounts fail and the motor falls through the protective thermal blanket of the ceiling radiation damper leaving the penetration unprotected. Specifying a UL Fire-Rated bath fan assembly ensures that the entire product will perform in a fire. Out-of-Partition Designs Motor mounted in the airstream (our OP model) or in a side-panel compartment (our SP model). No other manufacture offers both solutions. Only manufacturer with wood stud installation approval. Designed for grille terminations (corridor walls, shafts penetrations, etc.). Pros Eliminates the need for fire-rated door to access motor through direct access to the motor by removing the grille. No space required behind the wall for the motor. OP Grille size = duct size. Narrower widths Cons Longer sleeve lengths on shorter height units.  Shallow cavity (or chase) depths can be a problem. SP Shortest sleeve depth  Ideal for shallow cavity depths. Grille width = 8” + Duct width. 4-Way Installation A standard feature on all of our FSD and SD products, 4-way installations virtually eliminates site-condition coordination by allowing the contractor to install the product right-side-up or up-side-down in vertical wall or in horizontal floors. Gone are the days of detailing right-hand left-hand mounts. Now, if a beam or a wall is in the way of the motor, you simply flip the damper over and finished the installation.

8 Louvers & Sunshades  2”, 4”, 5”, 6” & 7” Stationary, Drainable, Operable & Combination Models in Extruded Aluminum & Steel  Certified Performance AMCA: Air, Water & Wind-Driven Rain DADE County: 201, 202 & 203  4”,6”, 8” & 12” - J-Blade or Airfoil-Blade Acoustical Louvers  In-House Fluoropolymer Paint (Newlar)  Engineered Sun-Shades & Special Shape Louvers Wind-Driven Rain: 8-in/hr & 50 mph (6” vertical) 1521 fpm free area ventilation rate 3-in/hr & 30 mph (7” horizontal blade) 1521 fpm free area ventilation rate Many manufacturers are listed with NO VENTILATION VELOCITY. It’s not very hard to keep out water when you prevent the air from entering too! Dade County: 85 psf on 12’ high x unlimited width with NO structural steel. Everyone else is limited in width AND requires heavy structural steel support. Kynar powder coat system Standard and custom color match. Environmentally friendly. Durability far exceeds traditional wet-coat process. Sun-Shades Fully interactive 3-D design complete with computerized GPS model to accurately display shading effects on the actual building in its exact geographical location and orientation to the sun.
