Architectural Facades & Rainscreen Systems
Rainscreen cladding can be used on block, pre-cast concrete or on integral wall (timber or steel) constructions. Typically the build-up consists of an outer siding of metal cladding fixed to an engineered aluminium support rail which is in turn fixed to the inner substrate. Insulation is mechanically fixed to the inner wall on a vapour control layer, typically EPDM is used for this purpose. The outer sheet acts as the ‘rainscreen’ and the inner wall acts as the vapour line. The cavity of the system acts as a drainage channel for water ingress that penetrates the outer face of the system. The system can be adopted to satisfy the most stringent of air leakage requirements.
