Rainscreen Cladding

Rainscreen Cladding

Known as ‘rainscreen’ cladding, this profile is the shape of a parallelogram with its two sides at opposing angles. It is installed with a narrow gap between adjacent boards to allow a small amount of light and air to filter through.

The shape is designed to maximise water to run-off away from the building and is ideal for exterior walls with thermal insulation.   If used as an open slatted fence, rainscreen cladding systems also offer more protection against the wind than a solid fence as it is dispersed rather than forced up and over.
