Rainscreen Façade Systems: Your Building’s Weatherproofing Hero with Oakley Improvements

Shield your building from the elements and elevate its aesthetics with Oakley Improvements‘ cutting-edge rainscreen façade systems. We offer customized solutions that go beyond mere wall cladding, creating a durable, protective layer that safeguards your building’s integrity and enhances its visual appeal.

What is a Rainscreen Façade System?

A rainscreen façade system is a multi-layered wall envelope that separates the exterior cladding from the building’s structural components. This creates an air cavity between the cladding and the wall, allowing moisture and airflow to escape, preventing water infiltration and promoting long-term building health.

Different Types of Rainscreen Systems:

  • Back-ventilated: Airflow is directed through the cavity via openings at the bottom and top of the system. This is the most common type and offers excellent moisture control.
  • Pressure-equalized: This advanced system uses pressure differentials to control airflow, optimizing performance in challenging wind conditions.
  • Drained and vented: Suitable for high-moisture environments, this system incorporates drainage channels within the cavity to efficiently remove water.

Benefits of a Rainscreen System:

  • Enhanced Durability: The air cavity protects the building structure from moisture damage, extending the lifespan of walls, insulation, and finishes.
  • Improved Energy Efficiency: Rainscreen systems can reduce thermal bridging, leading to lower energy consumption for heating and cooling.
  • Reduced Maintenance: The system’s self-draining nature minimizes the need for frequent cleaning and repairs, saving time and money.
  • Aesthetic Versatility: Rainscreen systems offer a wide range of cladding material options, allowing you to create stunning and unique building exteriors.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: By preventing moisture buildup, rainscreen systems contribute to a healthier indoor environment for occupants.

Rainscreen vs. Cladding:

While often used interchangeably, there’s a key distinction. Cladding is simply the outermost layer of a building’s exterior wall. A rainscreen system, however, is a complete wall envelope with multiple layers, including the cladding, air cavity, and drainage/ventilation components, working together to achieve optimal weatherproofing and performance.
