    Driwall™ Rainscreen UV

    Park City, Utah, home to two major ski resorts and the main location for Sundance Film Festival, is a large and extremely popular tourist destination. Not to mention a breathtakingly beautiful town, with mountains surrounding you everywhere you go.

    Park City is located about 30 miles from Salt Lake City, and is where you want to be if you want to escape the big city and take in some mountain views or to hit the slopes with friends. Although Park City is a tourist destination, many people choose to live there year round. 

    Keene’s Driwall Rainscreen 020-1 behind siding

    One home in particular, built in the middle of the mountains was concerning due to the home’s exposure to direct sunlight. The homeowner was worried about the home being unprotected from UV rays and causing damage, which is why he decided to use Keene Building Products Driwall Rainscreen UV behind the reclaimed wood siding.

    Driwall Rainscreen UV is a 0.40-inch-thick, high performance drainage and ventilation mat. It is designed to provide a 10 mm cavity with a long term UV resistance. DriwallTM Rainscreen UV has strength bars to increase compression resistance and with the addition of a UV stable fabric it makes Driwall Rainscreen UV ideal for open joint claddings. The UV stable fabric is black in color to contrast the emptiness and the entangled net is designed to deter insect and rodents from resting.
