Construction Specifier Magazine Publishes Cover Story on Our Glass Rainscreen Systems
“The Construction Specifier,” the official magazine of the Construction Specifications Institute, presents readers with an informative editorial about Bendheim’s open ventilated glass rainscreen systems.
Titled, “See-through rainscreens – Looking at the age of open, ventilated glass facades,” the article highlights the aesthetic and performance benefits of ventilated glass facades. In a properly designed rainscreen assembly, glass repels 90 to 100% of the wind-driven rain and moisture. It can comprise the entire facade for non-conditioned spaces, such as transit and parking facilities, or over-clad the performance walls of conditioned spaces.
Written by Said Elieh, Director of Technical Design for Bendheim Wall Systems, the cover story educates architects, designers, construction managers, and specification writers about glass rainscreens and moisture protection, installation methods, testing requirements, and contemporary applications. It highlights the benefits of glass, including its unique ability to transform mundane structures into exciting modern buildings. Glass is an excellent architectural material. It evokes a range of positive associations—prestige, openness, and brightness. It is also exceptionally maintenance-friendly, resisting permanent staining and graffiti.
