How Can a Rainscreen be a High Performance Envelope Option?

How can a rainscreen be a high-performance envelope option? This presentation will focus on the primary features of a rainscreen wall as defined by RAINA. The presentation will then move towards a focus on thermal performance of walls and how the integration with RS can occur. Attention will be given towards addressing varied façade panel manufactures warranty requirements and how this can narrow options within the rainscreen composition. Challenges with substructure design i.e. dynamics, deflection, expansion joints and cantilevers, secondary membrane positioning, perforated girts. How facades contribute to sustainability within the built environment as the PPECs (Primary Passive Environmental Control System) Finally – the rainscreen as a high-performance envelope design

Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehend the fundamental principles and components of a Rainscreen design, including its purpose, key features, and advantages.
  • Articulate how thermal performance concerns can be effectively managed and improved through the implementation of Rainscreen.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the flexibility of Rainscreen systems to accommodate the specific requirements of facade panel manufacturers/materials while complying with RAiNA’s definition of Rainscreens.
  • Recognize the significance of Rainscreen systems as a critical component contributing to sustainability.
