For a ventilated rainscreen, the cladding will not be applied directly onto the masonry, but mounted onto a substructure. Thus, insulation (moisture, thermal, sound and fire protecions) and weather protection are constructionally seperated. This method creates a ventilation space between the components, which regulates the moisture balance within the building structure.
Today's ventilated rainscreens are amongst the most successful façade systems. Current studies of the façade market verify that, besides its functional safety, architects most highly appreciate the creative possibilities of a ventilated rainscreen.
The system of the ventilated rainscreen allows for a choice of the most different claddings. Therefore, the design of the façade can be individually matched to the characteristics of a building. Even combinations of different materials can be easily implemented – by the use of different cladding materials.
