Series 4000 Rainscreen Drained & Back-Ventilated
The SAF Series 4000 panel system is a drained and back ventilated rain screen incorporating a strip of composite material in the reveal between each panel (instead of caulk) resulting in a more uniform appearance. The rain screen Series 4000 system comes with fabricated panels and shipped-loose “track” extrusions. The fabricated panels include a “frame” extrusion, factory attached to the routed and returned edges of the panel that fits conveniently into the field installed horizontal and vertical “track” extrusions. SAF’s Series 4000 rain screen is designed to allow moisture to permeate the outside wall, but subsequently drain through weep holes along the bottom edge of each panel. While any remaining moisture is designed to evaporate, the outside wall is not designed to act as a water/vapor barrier for the building.
