Practical, Effective Moisture Management
Rain screen design provides a cavity between the exterior cladding and main structure of the wall.
- Cavity allows for free drainage of any water that may penetrate the cladding.
- The air space promotes rapid drying of substrates and cladding materials, inhibiting moisture penetration into the building envelope.
- Ensures pressure equalization across the cavity to prevent water being drawn into the building itself.
VaproShield offers a variety of cost effective ways to create a rain screen design.
