Rain Screen Assemblies and HPL Compact Composite Claddings
This course will discuss a solution to these issues through the introduction of the engineering and design principles of drained and back-ventilated rain screen cladding. Topics to be covered include: a brief history of rain screen cladding, the mechanics of leakage, rain screen basics, design guidelines, benefits of drained and back-ventilated RSC, selection criteria for cladding materials (including high-pressure laminate (HPL) panels), life cycle analysis and design freedom.
