Understanding Rainscreen Systems and Rainscreen Walls

Rain and snow, the chief forms of water that impinge on a wall during normal conditions, are either moved downward by gravity, or sideways by wind. A rainscreen uses an exterior surface – a cladding layer – to break the force of sideways, wind-driven water movement, so that any water that gets through the small breaches in the surface has .【Get Price】
