Dupont Tyvek Rainscreen Provides Water Drainage Behind Cladding
A new product from Dupont called Tyvek DrainVent Rainscreen is a solution helping contractors and homeowners build or enjoy high-performance walls made of the most popular claddings and designs.
Tyvek DrainVent is a (patent-pending) three-dimensional honeycomb-textured drainage mat with attached heavy-duty filter fabric that creates a space for water drainage and air movement for drying behind cladding. Providing assurance that water will drain out of the wall.
Tyvek DrainVent Rainscreen:
- Helps prolong the life of exterior cladding. Its unique design creates an air gap that promotes moisture movement and ventilation behind wall cladding, which prevents rot, cracking and peeling problems.
