GFRC Rainscreens help perserve homes

Using GFRC rain screens to construct the exteriors of residential or commercial property help preserve the structure. Rain Screens not only look creative, but function by redirecting water flow onto vertical surfaces. Rainwater runs down the front and back of the panel, and is diverted away from underlying structural layers. This helps prevent water infiltration into the building wall assembly which causes rot an mold growth. To utilize a full green building system, the water can be routed into reservoirs that collect it for later use. These rain screens also improve energy efficiency in existing structures and newly constructed buildings. Panels reflect the sun's rays, keeping interiors cooler. We are increasing this "Heat Island Effect" reduction capability by replacing 20% of our cement load with pure white VCAS. Three cheers for rain screens! -Nikki
