StoVentec®

Original Complete Rainscreen® Systems

Design an original with complete confidence.

For nearly two decades, we have been innovating our StoVentec® Rainscreen® systems abroad. That’s why we trademarked the term “Rainscreen” when we knew we were onto something big.

Today, throughout Europe and the UK, our systems are used and known for their superior performance, single-source manufacturing, and rich palette of design possibilities.

In the USA, savvy architects, designers, cladding installers, and developers are already specifying these systems.

Our local technical specialists are ready to help you create a lasting, high-performance, work of art in cladding.

“StoVentec Glass provided a simple concept, easy installation and durable material for the design we created. We had heard of products like this being used on walls but applying it
to a ceiling is very rare.”

Finally, complete Rainscreen systems sourced from and backed by a single manufacturer.

Other manufacturers only offer a wall component (e.g., a cladding, sub-framing, an insulation, an air and water barrier, etc.) leaving it up to architects and contractors to work out the details for how these various bits and pieces should all come together.

Instead, with StoVentec, architects, owners, and contractors get an entire, fully-tested, and code-approved high-performance ventilated Rainscreen system. This includes a best-in-class air and water barrier, robust mineral wool continuous insulation, the most installer-friendly, adjustable sub-framing system available, and – of course – amazing StoVentec Rainscreen cladding.

Best of all, every system is backed with a 10-year warranty by Sto, manufacturer of StoVentec Original Rainscreen Systems.
