Rainscreen Cladding

What is Rainscreen Cladding?

Rainscreen Cladding is a contemporary architectural solution for the external finishing of buildings. Rainscreen cladding systems are designed to work in unison with the natural environment to protect the core structure of the building from rain, wind and fire. Correctly installed, rainscreen cladding will provide increased insulation and weatherproofing.

Rainscreen Cladding

The primary driver for a rainscreen cladding system is usually down to the visual impact of the building. But the desire for aesthetics has to be combined with performance; weatherproofing the building and contributing to its overall thermal performance.

Installation of Rainscreen Facade Systems

1. Substructure Preparation:

The initial stage involves preparing the building’s exterior wall. This may include installing insulation and ensuring a level surface for the rainscreen system.

2. Cladding Support System Installation:

A framework of brackets, rails, and other components is installed onto the wall. This framework will support the cladding panels and create the crucial air cavity.

3. Insulation Installation (Optional):

Depending on the chosen system and desired thermal performance, additional insulation may be installed within the framework.

4. Cladding Panel Installation:

The selected cladding panels are carefully secured to the support system. The method of attachment will vary depending on the material and design.

5. Sealing and Flashing:

Sealing all gaps and penetrations in the system. Flashing details are incorporated to ensure proper drainage and prevent water infiltration.

FAQs

Rainscreen cladding systems can vary in cost depending on the chosen materials, the complexity of the design, and the overall project size.
Rainscreen cladding systems are remarkably adaptable and can be designed to perform well in a variety of climates. By selecting appropriate materials, insulation levels, and ventilation strategies, rainscreen facades can be effective in any climate, as well as regions with high wind or moisture levels.
Compared to traditional cladding methods, rainscreen systems generally require minimal maintenance. The frequency may vary depending on the chosen materials and environmental conditions.
Fire safety is a crucial aspect of building design. Rainscreen systems can be designed to enhance fire safety by using non-combustible cladding materials and incorporating fire breaks within the air cavity.
Absolutely! Rainscreen cladding systems contribute to sustainable building practices in several ways. Their energy efficiency reduces energy consumption and lowers a building’s environmental footprint.
