Overview


ThinCast™ Rainscreen

What is a rainscreen?

A methodology for enclosing a structure with an external protective material over a building’s waterproof membrane layer . Three key components to a rainscreen are critical to the success of the product:

  • Air space between the exterior cladding and the moisture barrier
  • A clear drainage plane behind the exterior cladding
  • Drying of the assembly through convection

The ultimate goal is to deflect most of the elements before reaching behind the panels and having a successful draining system to take care of the rest.

How can ThinCast™ Help?

While being able to act functionally as any other rainscreen system out there, ThinCast™ also adds the natural beauty of concrete to the mix. Showcasing natural aggregates with a variety of colors and sizes, a modern sophisticated look can be added to any building.
