Keene Driwall™ RainScreen 6mm (1/4”)

Driwall™ RainScreen 6mm (1/4”) is a rollable rainscreen product which can be used in several different applications. The product is most commonly used as a rain screen for stucco, man-made stone, sidewall shingles, and vertical siding. The product may also be used as a best-practice behind most other sidings and masonry, making it an extremely versatile rain screen system. While a minimum of 10mm is recommended, Driwall 6mm exceeds building code requirements in most non-coastal areas of Canada.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

WHY CHOOSE DRIWALL™ AS YOUR RAIN SCREEN SYSTEM? Save Time and Money and Complete More Projects!
  • Less than half the installed cost of using furring strips and backerboard for a stucco or stone application — approx. 1/3rd of the installation time!
  • Much faster and more cost effective to install than cross-strapping furring strips for vertical siding or sidewall shingles
One Product that is Easy and Versatile
  • Cuts easily with utility knife or snips
  • Bends nicely around corners!
  • One rain screen product which can be used in virtually every application!
  • Aesthetics: Projects look better
    • Stucco and stone less susceptible to "ridging" and "cracking" (due to consistent, compression resistant product) which is often associated with the furring strip/backerboard combination — straighter, crisper walls!
    • Less wavy siding and shakes due to consistent rigid product along entire depth of wall (not strips of wood or plastic every 8 or 16 inches which may cause waviness)
    Unparalleled Ventilation/Drying
    • >90% Air! vs. 80% or less using the wood furring strip method (for stucco/stone)
    • Unlike some dimpled products, Driwall™ allows for cross-ventilation and vapour permeance for better drying
    Increase the Life of Your Building
  • Product will not retain moisture vs. wood furring strips which can soak up water
  • Product does not degrade fasteners vs. chemical treatments in wood strips which can eat away at nails and other fasteners
  • Product made from a high-quality polypropylene for durability, strength, and longevity
  • Eliminate Cross-Strapping and Backerboard
    • Eliminates the need to cross-strap behind shingles and horizontal siding
    • No reason to use furring strips and backerboard for stucco/stone projects — just apply Driwall™!
