Drained and back-ventilated (DBV) rainscreen cladding systems are steadily gaining popularity in North American building facades. Architects, building science experts, and property owners are adopting these innovative wall assemblies to effectively manage water, moisture, and radiant heat. They also allow for seamless integration of continuous insulation, resulting in improved thermal performance and energy efficiency.

Aluminum remains the preferred choice for cladding material, offering exceptional qualities such as fire and corrosion resistance, lightweight construction, various finish options, and design flexibility.

For almost two decades, Longboard has earned its reputation as a reliable provider of top-notch aluminum cladding systems in North America. Our wide range of cladding systems offer diverse designs, textures, and finishes, granting you the freedom to craft various design aesthetics.
