Dupont Rainvent Battens ~ A Durable, Waterproof Alternative to Wood Furring Strips
Choose furring strips made for durable performance and compatibility with DuPont™ Tyvek®, as well as other weather barriers.
When installed over a DuPont™ Tyvek® water-resistant barrier, RainVent™ Batten furring strips create an intentional ventilated airspace between the cladding and the sheathing, to improve drying and help reduce the chances of moisture damage and mold.
HOW IT WORKS:
In typical wood-framed wall construction, a DuPont™ Tyvek® weather barrier is installed over sheathing. DuPont™ RainVentTMBattens are installed over the Tyvek® WB. Polypropylene construction makes them more durable and less susceptible to water damage than wood furring strips.
The ventilated air space created between exterior cladding and wall sheathing allows air circulation vertically and horizontally, to help ventilate the air space to enhance drying and form a capillary break from sheathing.
