Finally, A Complete Rainscreen® System

Today’s rain screen façade panels are available in a variety of materials, shapes, and colors providing designers with nearly unlimited aesthetic options.  But many are just that, a façade panel, and not a complete system.  

StoVentec™ Rainscreen® systems are different.

StoVentec™ Rainscreen® systems are complete, with all the system components – including the air and moisture barrier, thermal insulation, sub-construction and façade panel – engineered to perform together. And they offer the widest variety of aesthetic options available, including colors, shapes, textures, even glass – in a single source system backed by a 10-year system warranty.

Aesthetic Options

What is a Rainscreen System?

Rainscreen systems are designed to have a ventilation space, or air gap between the exterior cladding panel and the moisture resistant surface of an air and moisture barrier applied to the sheathing.  The air gap creates a capillary break and allows drainage and evaporation of moisture that gets behind the cladding panel.  This creates a highperformance façade system that is both attractive and highly resistant to moisture intrusion.
