  2. 2. SYSTEMSRAINSCREEN METAL PANEL SYSTEM• Sheet metal panel system designed by Kate Larson for Northshore Sheet Metal• Fabricated from steel and aluminum• Suitable for any type of building (commercial or residential)• Standard or custom options• Ventilated rainscreen design for high performance• Quick and easy installation• Installed on several buildings nationwide (biggest use so far on Mirabella Retirement Community in Seattle) VT. JOINT INSIDE CORNER OUTSIDE CORNER HZ. JOINT Rainscreen cladding is a construction façade rainscreen system which consists of subframe and different finishes such as ceramic tiles, stone boards, high-pressure laminates, composite aluminum panels, metal panels (aluminum, zinc, steel), fibre-cement board, or durable exterior woods. Rainscreen cladding is the attachment of an outer skin of rear-ventilated cladding to a new or existing building. The system is a form of double-wall construction that uses an outer layer to keep out the rain and an inner layer to provide thermal insulation, prevent excessive air leakage and carry wind loading. The outer layer breathes like a skin while the inner layer reduces energy losses. The structural frame of the building is kept absolutely dry, as water never reaches it or the thermal insulation. Water droplets are not driven through the panel joints or openings because the rainscreen principle means that wind pressure acting on the outer face of the panel is equalized in the cavity. Therefore, there is no significant pressure differential to drive the rain through joints. During extreme weather, a minimal amount of water may penetrate the outer cladding. This, however, will run as droplets down the back of the cladding sheets and be dissipated through evaporation and drainage. 01
