Rain Screen Design Components include VaproBatten and VaproVent Strip. Combined with VaproShield membranes, these components create a very effective, easy to install rain screen design. They are engineered to quickly move trapped moisture through the building envelope ensuring maximum drying capacity.


VaproBatten is a UV stable, breathable vinyl batten system for rain screen applications. Its unique and innovative design is a direct replacement for pressure treated plywood furring or treated lumber battens reducing trapped moisture damage costs: mold, mildew, rot and/or corrosion.

VaproVent Strip

VaproVent Strips are designed to keep critters out of the batten assembly.

VaproVent L Strips are attached to the top and bottom of VaproBattens.

VaproVent Hook Strips are used with VaproBattens as a starter strip for vinyl and beveled siding applications, in place of the VaproVent L strip at the bottom of the assembly.
