The DuPont Tyvek DrainVent Rainscreen is designed to create a 6 mm/0.25-inch space behind a home’s exterior cladding for water drainage and air movement. This not only allows for drying behind cladding, but protects against moisture damage to exterior walls, including rotting, cracking, and peeling. The rainscreen material uses a honeycomb-textured design to provide protection against exterior moisture damage and may be installed behind stucco, stone veneer, brick, wood, fiber cement, and metal panel cladding. The roll is designed to be easy to cut, roll tight against corners, and lay flat. dupont.com
