Innovative Rain Screen

We are extremely excited and proud to partner with two industry leaders in offering rain screen siding systems for your commercial or residential application!

Dasso has been the global leader in the development of cutting edge bamboo products. This continues with their production of Dasso XTR bamboo rain screen. For even more scope and variety of species, Sterritt Lumber and Iron Woods have joined forces to offer a durable rain screen system called Vanish Rain Screen.

The rain screen is the siding itself but the term rainscreen implies a system of building. Ideally, the rain screen prevents the wall moisture barrier on sheathing from getting wet. Traditional horizontal rain screen siding has long been recommended for improved airflow, allowing air to move vertically behind the siding and moisture to evaporate. This significantly improves the service life of a building envelope and coating performance.

There are a number of wood siding species that are appropriate for rain screen wood siding installations. Including Bamboo, high density hardwood siding materials such as Ipe, Cumaru, Garapa, and FSC Machiche are excellent wood siding material options for your rain screen wood siding installation.
