Fiberon cladding is the smart choice for beautiful, low-maintenance rain screen exteriors.
Composite Cladding in Action
Rain screens are an effective, eco-friendly way to manage moisture in the building envelope. A key element is durable cladding that deflects water and adds aesthetic appeal. Fiberon cladding is the answer.
Available in eight striking, multi-tonal colors that emulate natural hardwoods, Fiberon composite cladding delivers a range of benefits not found with wood, fiber-cement, or other common materials. A solid wood-composite core prevents splintering, cracking, insect infestation, and decay. The four-sided, patented PermaTech® cap layer delivers exceptional stain and fade resistance. Fiberon cladding is easy to install and never needs painting, staining, or refinishing, so long-term costs of ownership are significantly lower, too.
Rain, especially wind-driven rain, and high interior moisture can be easily absorbed into building materials. Over time, the moisture can build up and lead to material decay and structural damage.
Drain, Deflect and Dry
Rain screens create a continuous air space behind the cladding to promote draining and drying. Even an air space as narrow as 3/8 inches wide will:
Allow water to drain effectively
Prevent capillary moisture movement
Accelerate drying significantly
Cladding and water absorption
Many common cladding materials - brick, stucco, and wood, for example - will absorb water quite readily, rather than deflect it.
Fiberon cladding deflects water. What's more, it resists fading due to sun exposure (wood does not) and is not affected by freeze / thaw cycles (fiber-cement, wood, and sometimes brick and stucco are affected).
