FAQ

Frequently asked questions regarding AGS Rainscreen Cladding

The rainscreen cladding system is composed of with a load-bearing wall, an insulation layer creating air space, and a cladding product that is fixed to the structural frame. Thanks to this design, an air cavity is produced between the load-bearing wall and the cladding material, allowing constant ventilation throughout the structural wall system.

A rainscreen cladding system is a type of cladding for walls which aside from aesthetic benefits, has the feature of being able to protect the building from the elements. It can be implemented on renovations/refurbishments and new builds due to its modular design. This is truly recommended for constructions being constructed in areas where rain is a common occurrence. It is a wall cladding system that has a lot of benefits. The first one is that it allows the building to breathe (airflow). This means that it will allow for the moisture in the indoors to get out, so that it does not accumulate. This is the best way to ensure that the space is not humid. The second benefit is that it insulates the cold. This is especially important in areas where the temperature drops drastically during the winter. Thus, it will allow the building to be protected from heat energy loss.

There are many types of cladding systems and many ways to describe them. The two most commonly used terms are rainscreen and ventilated cladding. The most important part of a cladding system is the exterior surface that keeps the elements out and the interior dry.

A rainscreen cladding system is a type of exterior wall cladding which is designed to protect the insulation and structural sheathing of a building from the weather. The rainscreen system works by providing a space between the cladding and the exterior insulation. This space is filled with an air and water impermeable membrane. The membrane is then back-ventilated to allow for the flow of air through the wall cavity and to drain water away from the wall, making for an excellent drainage system. The AGS System rainscreen cladding system is made of high performance, lightweight, non-combustible, and non-corrosive materials that have been designed for easy installation and superior durability.

There are three main types of rainscreen external / cladding systems – these are:

Vented drained cladding

Vented cladding

Pressure equalised cladding

Bad façade insulation can occur substantial energy loss in private homes and other structures. On the contrary, the rainscreen cladding system favours energy conserving and lowers energy losses thanks to its air cavity on the outside façade of the structure.

When integrating the rain-screen cladding system with an outside insulation system, we provide the structure with wide variety of advantages and benefits, including a major boost of thermal and acoustic performance.

Siding, or cladding, is a great way to finish the exterior of a building. It can hide structure deficiencies, correct uneven wall elevations and add an attractive, durable finish to the exterior. The most common type of siding is aluminium.

Aluminium is a great material because it is lightweight, long lasting and easy to install.

Steel, vinyl, brick and stone are also popular, long-lasting alternatives.

A rainscreen cladding system is a construction method that uses moisture-impermeable cladding to create an airtight enclosure around a building’s exterior. The cladding typically includes a continuous layer of water-repellent and airtight building materials, such as polyethylene or a metal.

The following is the step-by-step guide on how to install a rainscreen cladding support system:

1. Determine the approximate location of your building’s outer wall and the location of the window or door that will be installed as your entry point.

2. Determine the type(s) of cladding and/or rainscreen you plan on installing around your window or door.

A support system is installed on the outside of the building. The supports are made of metal or a material that can withstand the weather elements.

The cladding material is kept dry and protected from the elements

The cladding material is kept dry and protected from the elements. The system creates a new layer of protection between the building and its exterior, which is essential for protecting the building.

Thermal and acoustic insulation is improved

Rainscreen cladding systems have many benefits. Not only are they more efficient than roofs, but they also provide thermal and acoustic insulation.

Low initial investment and energy efficiency make the product worth it

The product is a low-cost, efficient option in the market. The initial investment is lower and the energy efficiency makes it more desirable to some people.

The rain screen cladding system provides better control of the heating and cooling

The rain screen cladding system provides better control of the heating and cooling. It is also important to consider your roofing materials and how they will react to the rain.

The only negative of rain-screen cladding is the initial investment, which is recouped over time from savings in energy.

There are a variety of types of rainscreen cladding systems, such as aluminum cladding, copper-clad steel and fiberglass.

Now that the structure and functioning of the rainscreen cladding system is clear, it is important to mention the main advantages of installing a rainscreen cladding system in buildings and private homes. Extends the facade’s lifetime The constant ventilation inside the air cavity improves the durability of the exterior cladding material , since it keeps it dry. The facade’s lifetime is even longer when using a durable and resistant material like natural slate. Improves thermal and acoustic insulation The insulation layer is optional, but when we combine it with the rainscreen cladding system, the thermal and acoustic insulation of the building improves significantly . Increases energy efficiency The rainscreen cladding makes cooling the building easier during summer and provides a better control of the heating during winter, favouring both thermal comfort and energy saving . Thanks to the rainscreen cladding system, energy bills can be reduced between 30 and 40%. Requires virtually no maintenance Rainscreen cladding systems require almost zero maintenance , specially if you choose a cladding material that withstands adverse weather conditions like a high-quality natural slate. Adds value to the building or home The extra initial investment is recovered thanks to the durability, energy efficiency and low maintenance cost of the facade. It is a stand for a sustainable future that allows, at the same time, reducing your heating bills and increasing your home’s thermal comfort.
