Custom rain screen at a LEED Wisconsin home

A custom eight-inch-deep rain screen system was designed to reflect solar radiation, and allows moisture to escape with the flow of air from behind the facade’s suspended concrete panels. “As a result, the underlying thermal envelope is protected from direct solar exposure and moisture, preventing water from being trapped in the walls and improving the comfort of the residents inside,” Schmaling says.
