VENTILATING WOOD BACKING

In preserved spruce in a vacuum

SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION

The slats contain (semi-circular) ventilation gaps at regular intervals to prevent wood rot.

INFO

In the case of horizontal cladding, the ventilation is provided between the vertical battening and by means of the notches in the ventilating back wood; ventilation is also possible between the stiles.
Double battening is preferably used for vertical cladding, because a single horizontal beam (without notches) excludes air circulation behind the cladding.
In addition to the double battening, the horizontal beam must be bevelled inwards at the top so moisture is guided away from the cladding.

In all cases, you will have optimum ventilation when using double battening. Sufficient ventilation is an important part of facade quality.

MOISTURE

It is important that no moisture collects in or behind the cladding. For this reason, the cavity behind the cladding must in all cases have sufficient exterior air ventilation.

BLACK-SPRAYED BACKING SLATS

Preserved under vacuum

SPRUCE BACKING SLATS

INFO

Apart from ventilating wood backing, we can also provide black sprayed backing slats from storage. These have been preserved under vacuum pressure, dried again, and sprayed black all around. They have one bevelled side and are intended for open cladding (horizontal or vertical). The black finish ensures that the wood backing is nicely covered from sight by the dark cavity and the bevelled side for drainage.
