Rainscreen cladding is a system that has become one of the most efficient solution for construction envelope purposes. It provides numerous advantages in terms of thermal and acoustic insulation, avoiding thermal bridges and condensation problems.

The rainscreen cladding system consists of a load bearing wall, a layer of insulation and a covering material fixed to the building with the help of a supporting structure. This system creates a gap between the insulation and covering material called an air cavity.

Our CUPACLAD® rainscreen cladding systems offer a design adapted to every need, and are compatible with any type of insulating material.
