Rainscreen cladding is an innovative cladding technique originally developed in Norway in the 1940s and 50s. The principle behind rainscreen cladding is having multiple layers in the external wall of a building, each performing specific functions, instead of a single layer acting as structure, thermal & acoustic insulation, and moisture & wind barrier all at once.

In a rainscreen cladding system, the external cladding itself is not the waterproof element, but rather acts as an outer skin, a shield to protect the actual waterproof membrane or sheathing behind it, as well as providing a narrow air gap so that water can drain and evaporate off the inner wall.

Rainscreen cladding details don’t function as structural support or as thermal or acoustic insulation, but as an aesthetic and physical barrier which protects the waterproof membrane from excess water and wind, because it will never be 100% waterproof, and from sunlight, which causes such membranes to degrade over time.
