TC Rainscreen

Each TC Rainscreen panel production run is tailored to the specific color, shape, and texture characteristics unique to your project. These panels have a ship-lapped profile, are 30mm thick, and weigh about 8.4 pounds per square foot. TC Rainscreen is attached to Fast Track Bronze. This is an open, ventilated facade system that allows moisture drainage and air flow at the back of the panels.  These are best suited for walls and soffits. Coursing can be done in a continuous horizontal manner or with flexible vertical joints. Vertical orientation is possible but requires special cut kerfs at the panel edges. Panel edges are cut per shop drawings at the plant. Custom sizes, shapes, colors, and glazing are available upon request. All TC Cladding products are recyclable.

Rainscreen Benefits:

The Fast Track system that carries both TC Rainscreen and TC Rainscreen Light, as well as the open joints, create a continuous air gap between the terra-cotta siding and the structure of the building allowing the wall to breathe and drain water quickly. 

The TC Cladding deflects any outward moisture, while releasing the trapped moisture. The vapor barrier on the outside of the substrate acts as the final air and water barrier. 

This allows for proper ventilation, drainage, and pressure equalization to occur in the wall, eliminating the chance for trapped moisture, dry rot and mold. 

The airspace also creates an extra layer of insulation (thermal mass) between the building and the facade, resulting in healthy wall construction as well as improved comfort for the occupants. This can lead to energy savings on your HVAC system costs.

Without the need for grout or sealants, your jobs are done faster and cleaner while still providing protection from hazardous weather conditions such as wind, temperature, uv rays, and normal ground movement.
