Masonry Rainscreen Wall Systems         
Thin clad open-jointed rainscreen walls are becoming popular building enclosures to fulfill contemporary architectural design parameters. Attendees will learn how challenging problems of water, air, vapor, and energy control concepts are integrated for successful and innovative exterior wall solutions. Attendees will learn how masonry rainscreens can be achieved with sub-frame systems to support thin lightweight masonry units such as natural stone, terra cotta, brick, porcelain stone, calcium silicate, glass-fiber reinforced concrete, and high-pressure laminates. Learn how cohesive design of rainscreen wall assemblies and insights into construction guidelines and installation techniques can enhance project durability and energy control. Photos of recent local rainscreen projects will also be viewed and discussed in this presentation.
