Decorative Fiber Cement Surfacing

The ventilated rainscreen cladding system is effective in dealing with moisture management and temperature regulation.

An architectural design with the use of fiber cement panels in a rainscreen application is the perfect solution for designers looking to achieve an energy efficient building utilizing exterior insulation to prevent thermal bridging and reduce condensation.

The ventilated rainscreen cladding system is effective in dealing with moisture management and temperature regulation.  The ventilated cavity has a cooling effect when temperatures are high.  Most of the sun’s rays are deflected away from the building.  Heat passing through the exterior wall panel is dissipated by the ventilating effect of the space between the panel and the structural wall.  This air space also works to evacuate water and humidity that may penetrate through the open horizontal and vertical panel joints and keep the structural wall absolutely dry.  This reduces the structural stress on the wall system as no water will reach the load bearing wall or the thermal insulation.

In view of the fact that insulation material is applied to the outside of the building, changes in temperature are minor as compared to conventional constructions where insulation is only applied to the interior.  This principle applies to both winter and summer or hot and cold climates.
