Another key advantage is the RAINSCREEN PRINCIPLE. The outer cladding acts as a protective screen against rain and snow. In addition, air that runs through the chamber evaporates moisture, keeping the building dry and insulated, avoiding the adverse effects of moisture on building finishes and structural components.
