Rainscreen cladding

Rainscreen cladding systems consist of an outer leaf with air gaps, a ventilated cavity and an inner wall. Though the concept has been around for centuries, modern rainscreen cladding was developed in Scandinavia during the 1940s using timber cladding. One of the earliest and best-known examples of this type of construction is the 30-storey Alcoa building in Pittsburgh in the United States, which was built in 1952 and clad in open-jointed aluminium baffle panels. However, it wasn’t until the 1970s that the term “rainscreen cladding” was adopted and such systems became commonplace.
