Our rainscreen clip offers a simple and cost-effective method of creating a rainscreen cavity for vinyl siding. This clip is currently undergoing CCMC testing.
Note: Colour will vary according to availability, since this profile is hidden from view once installed. It is commonly black.
Higher Wind Resistance
As an added bonus, the Raindog clip test results show that wind resistance of the vinyl panels is substantially improved (up to 80%). Most vinyl siding will blow off the wall under 90 miles per hour winds, where the Raindog Clip acts as a washer over the siding nailing point, and has withstood wind loads up to 200 miles per hour!
The Raindog rainscreen clip eliminates the need for strapping altogether, saving time, materials and money. The rainscreen cavity produced by the clip is much more efficient than that produced by strapping. The clip allows cross-ventilation between adjacent cavities and the clip has minimal contact with the wall surface.
