Sustainable Designs

Pressure-equalized rainscreen facades are essential elements in sustainable exterior wall designs.  They control air pressure differential, surface tension, wind-driven rain and gravity-the forces that drive water into a wall assembly.  The air barrier behind the rainscreen façade stops air and water penetration while reducing the need for exposed caulking, grout or mortar.  The system is vented to equalize pressure-providing sustainability and value derived from a healthy wall that breathes and requires little maintenance over the long term.

ProCLAD's quality rainscreen systems transcend time.
