What is a Rain Screen System?
Rain screen systems are a type of cladding system that is designed to protect the exterior of a building from moisture damage. They consist of an outer layer of cladding, an air gap, and a waterproof membrane. The air gap between the cladding and the membrane allows for ventilation, which helps to prevent moisture from penetrating the building envelope.
Rain Screen System Benefits
Rain screen systems offer several benefits for commercial buildings including, but not limited to the following:
Improve the energy efficiency of the building by reducing the amount of heat transfer through the walls.
Provides a barrier against water damage, which can cause costly repairs and permanent damage to the building structure.
Improves the acoustics of the building by reducing noise levels from outside.
The installation of rain screen systems involves several steps. The first step is to prepare the building surface by cleaning and repairing any damage. The next step is to install the waterproof membrane, which is typically made of a synthetic material such as EPDM or PVC. The cladding is then installed over the membrane, leaving an air gap between the two layers. The air gap is created by installing vertical furring strips, which provide support for the cladding and allow for ventilation.
Once the rain screen system is installed, it requires minimal maintenance. Regular inspections should be conducted to ensure that the system is functioning properly and to identify any potential issues before they become serious problems.
In conclusion, rain screen systems are an effective solution for protecting commercial buildings from moisture damage and improving energy efficiency.
