The rain-screen design can be installed simply over commercial grade Tyvek onto plywood, or as the most sophisticated outboard insulation pressure equalized rain-screen you can design. Innova Tile InnovaGrid is a double wall extruded engineered terracotta clay panel system with a central air space to increase insulating value and reduce weight.
A rainscreen is a cladding that is separated from the substrate wall by use of furring boards. This separation creates an air cavity allowing any penetrating water to drain or evaporate away, rather than seeping into the structural walls, preventing mold and costly water damage.
A rainscreen system is the embodiment of building scientist Dr. Joseph Lstibrureks two rules of moisture management: Keep water out; Let water out if it gets in. The rainscreen is the first line of defense against the effects of moisture on the wall detail.
A rainscreen is an exterior wall detail where the siding wall cladding stands off from the moisture-resistant surface of an air barrier applied to the sheathing sheeting to create a capillary break and to allow drainage and evaporation. The rain screen is the siding itself but the term rainscreen implies a system of building. Ideally the rain screen prevents the wall air/moisture barrier
The Clear ChoiceTM Perfect for all exterior siding applications. Our innovative RAIN SCREEN technology equalizes the air pressure within the wall system by creating a drainage and ventilation cavity between the weather resistant barrier WRB and the exterior wall. This design allows excess moisture to drain from the wall system and allows ventilated air to
The basic idea of a rainscreen is to have an exterior surface a cladding layer - that breaks the force of sideways, wind-driven water movement, so that any water which gets through the small breaches in the surface has lost its momentum.
highly competitive, high-end rain screen wall system. Ameriplate panels are factory assembled with a flat plate facing structurally adhered to an extruded aluminum panel frame and may be flat or curved. Two-dimensional geometries of panel facings are virtually limitless and panels may be installed in any
Your application will determine whether a barrier-wall or a rainscreen system is the best option. To help you decide, here are some pros and cons. Bob Griffiths, Architectural Technical Sales Specialist, Firestone Building Products
This system accepts the fact that nosiding system is entirely waterproof and relies, instead, on the drainage layer for waterproofing and moisture control see illustration . CLICK TO ENLARGE A rain-screen wall is the best defense against moisture problems with todays wood sidings and finishes.
Engineered for freedom and performance Metalwërks rainscreen wall systems are engineered to provide advanced long-term performance in thermal and
The rainscreen principle is not new, nor is the idea of rainscreen applied to wall design. For centuries in Norway, the rainscreen idea was intuitively used, without any scientific or systematic foundation. They utilized drained and back-ventilated claddings with both closed and open joints. On buildings with timber claddings, closed joints were adopted, and openings
