StoVentec® Original Complete Rainscreen® Systems

Sto® originated complete Rainscreen®* systems so that you can design an original with complete confidence.

For nearly two decades, Sto® has been innovating its StoVentec® Rainscreen® systems abroad. That’s why it was Sto® who trademarked the term “Rainscreen” many years ago.

Today, throughout Europe and the UK, the systems are widely in use for their clearly superior performance, single-source manufacturer, and truly original design possibilities.

Now, the same complete Rainscreen® systems are available here in North America today.

Original Design Possibilities

One of the biggest advantages of Rainscreen® walls is increased design flexibility. StoVentec® Rainscreen® systems maximize this advantage by allowing architects to freely mix and match virtually any rainscreen cladding material, texture, shape, and color to create a truly original facade.

With StoVentec® systems, you also get options for thin masonry veneer cladding and brilliant back-painted glass cladding, even custom full-color HD digitally printed glass for a truly one-of-a-kind building facade.

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.

One complete system.
One trusted supplier.
One comprehensive warranty.
Endless possibilities.
