Considering a Rainscreen System?
Are you an architect, designer, specifier, or construction professional considering adding an exterior rainscreen to a building design or remodel? That’s a great decision. There are many benefits of adding naturally ventilated rainscreen facades.
Benefits of Rainscreen Systems
An interior weatherproof and insulated panel combined with an outer rainscreen cladding provides protection from moisture and air, prevents build-up of condensation, and provides structures with the ability to breathe and even slightly flex under wind loads.
Comforts of Rainscreen Systems
Aside from the increased energy efficiency and moisture management, rain screen siding systems provide insulation from solar gain in summer providing better thermal management. The air gap between the inner moisture barrier and the outer rainscreen facade provides greater noise absorption and resistance to acoustic energy (noise). These benefits provide occupants and owners of rain screen siding equipped buildings with a peace of mind and comfort year round.
There are still more benefits when you choose Trugrain by Resysta as your material of choice in your rainscreen siding application.
