Description

Business Envelope & Metal in Architecture

Rainscreens have been an elusive term in the construction industry. People have used them to apply to materials, assemblies, and functions, sometimes in ways that are questionable. This presentation officially defines the term “rainscreen”, identifies its components, and explores the reason for using a rainscreen and the performance requirements it to to function properly. Additionally we’ll determine why moisture problems in buildings are increasing.

Work is underway by the industry to fully address all the requirements for performance, taking into consideration proper building science. It also identifies when one Code requirement may conflict with other Code requirement and may not take into consideration building science.
