SAVE 50% MORE TIME AND MONEY WITH LIGHTWEIGHT, EASY TO HANDLE INSTALLATION

Keene DriwalI Rainscreen is a drainage mat for exterior wall systems. The entangled net product eliminates incidental moisture problems in most exterior veneer applications, including cedar, stucco, manufactured stone, and fibre cement siding.

With the increase in building “tightness” for thermal protection, moisture problems are on the rise, causing a greater need for hydrostatic pressure release and a ventilation method. The full-wall DriwalItm Rainscreen product rolls over the Water-resistive barrier to separate it from the exterior veneer. The airspace that DriwalI Rainscreen creates increases airflow through the wall cavity, allowing the wall to breathe and stay dry.

DRIWALL™ RAINSCREEN 10MM

Lightweight and easy to handle, Keene Driwall Rainscreen is a solution for drainage of excess moisture and ventilation in one product. Simple installation with mechanical staple hammer, the polymer core is resistant to most known corrosive chemicals, including solvents. Wide rolls means fewer seams and the core actually absorbs and releases no moisture, meaning there is no source for the promotion of mould, mildew or bacteria to grow.

WHY CHOOSE DRIWALL RAINSCREEN?

SAVE TIME AND MONEY

Driwall Rainscreen is considerably faster and more cost effective to install than cross-strapping furring strips for vertical siding or sidewall shingles. This allows you to install at less than half the cost of using furring strips and backer board for a stucco or stone application — with approx. 1/3rd of the installation time!

VERSATILE PRODUCT

Driwall Rainscreen cuts easily with utility knife or snips and can be easily bent around corners, making sure all seams and joints are protected. This versatile product can be used in virtually every application.

improved AESTHETICS

Driwall Rainscreen improves the performance of Stucco and Stone making them less susceptible to ‘ridging’ and ‘cracking’ (due to consistent, compression resistance) which is often associated with the furring strip/backer-board combination. The end result – straighter, crisper walls!

Used underneath plank siding, Driwall Rainscreen results in less wavy siding and shakes due to the consistent rigid surface membrane along the entire wall as opposed to strips of wood or plastic every 8 or 16 inches which can cause waviness.

UNPARALLELED VENTILATION/DRYING

Driwall Rainscreen provides 10% more ventilation than wood furring strips. Unlike some dimpled products, Driwall actually promotes cross-ventilation and vapour permeance resulting in faster drying times.

INCREASE THE LIFE OF YOUR BUILDING

Unlike wood furring strips which can soak up water, Driwall Rainscreen will not retain moisture. The product does not corrode fasteners which is another advantage against using chemically treated wood strips which can eat away at nails and other fasteners. Driwall is made from a high-quality polypropylene for durability, strength, and longevity.

ELIMINATE CROSS-STRAPPING & BACKER-BOARD

Driwall Rainscreen Eliminates the need to cross-strap behind shingles and horizontal siding. No reason to use furring strips and backer-board for stucco/stone projects — just apply Driwall and save even more installation time, labour, and money!
