Event Details



Whether you call them mortarless systems, channel-anchored masonry, ventilated facades, rainscreen walls represent the newest generation of masonry. These walls are energy-efficient, healthy and sustainable, resistant to moisture, and provide a modern design aesthetic.

This program will analyze rainscreen wall system technology including all components from the vertical sub-frame to the variety of cladding options available. It will address moisture, air infiltration, seismic design, details and other performance and design considerations.

Presenters include Pat Conway (IMI), other IMI representatives, John Straub (Principal at RDH Building Science and RDH Building Science Labs), Fred Kinateder (Kinateder Consulting), and material suppliers.


This program meets AIA/CES requirements for Continuing Education, and qualifies for up to _HSW learning units, which will be awarded individually per program.

Keynote Presentation - Preliminary

John Straub, Principal at RDH Building Science and RDH Building Science Labs

John Straub’s presentation will be at a more technical 5k foot level that will discuss the building science behind rainscreens and balancing the various design requirements from thermal (effective R-value and mitigating thermal bridging), air and moisture management (drainage and drying), fire, compartmentalizing (either at floor lines for fire or egress water to compartmentalizing around corners or parapets to mitigate pressure differentials).
