Tyvek DrainVent Rainscreen

DuPont’s Tyvek DrainVent Rainscreen is designed to provide advanced protection
against moisture damage in exterior wall systems. The product is the business’
first roll good offering that creates a 6mm (0.25″) space for water drainage and air
movement for drying behind cladding. DrainVent can be installed behind stucco,
stone veneer, brick, wood, fiber cement and metal panel systems, and is engineered
to help prolong the life of exterior cladding by creating a gap that helps prevent rot,
cracking and peeling problems. The product replaces the intervening layer required
with stucco and stone, while the attached heavy-duty filter fabric prevents mortar
and stucco infiltration. DrainVent is designed to be easy to cut and install, lay flat
and roll tight against corners, helping protect against poor installation and detailing
errors. Includes a 10-year limited product warranty, and a 10-year limited product
and labor warranty. www.building.dupont.com
